My sister recently posted a version of this recipe on Facebook with the caption "Dinner was a hit! 300,00 thumbs up!"
This intrigued me of course and I had to see what she was raving about. Thankfully my sister and I have similar tastes so I knew whatever was going on it had to be pretty tasty to get her family excited like that.
I had some ground beef already hanging out in my fridge so I tried her version the next night. It was good, but, no offense to my sis, I knew it could be better. I swapped a couple ingredients and changed the way the recipe was prepared. When I made it again my family finally gave it the 300,00 thumbs up my sister had promised.
It is so easy and amazingly quick on a night when everyone is screaming they are hungry. If you have leftover rice from another meal, you can have this done in under 15 minutes. Otherwise you will need only as long as your rice takes to cook.
We love to serve it with a green vegetable....peas, snow peas, brussel sprouts, green beans, etc. but you could serve it up with whatever veg your family has in the fridge that needs to be used up.
Korean Beef Bowl
1 pound ground beef
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. fresh ginger, minced
3 green onions, sliced (separate the white and green parts)
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 to 1 tsp. sriracha (depending on how spicy you want it)
In a medium skillet, brown the ground beef until just a little pink remains, drain the ground beef and return skillet to heat.
Add the garlic, ginger, white parts of the green onions and sesame oil. Continue cooking until no pink remains in beef, about 2-3 minutes.
In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, soy sauce and sriracha. Add to cooked beef mixture. Cook over medium heat 3-5 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly and coats beef.
Serve over cooked rice. Top with remaining green onions.
