Until recently, I hardly ever cooked. Mike and I would go out to eat most of the time and when I did cook it was the same old boring meals. I’ve been scouring the internet, Pinterest and my cookbooks for new meals to try. During one of my internet searches I came across this amazing food blog, Damn Delicious, and found this recipe for Cheater Korean Beef Bowls.
I’m a really picky eater, but this recipe doesn’t contain anything I won’t eat. This recipe is quick and easy to make and as someone who is slow and deliberate in the kitchen it only took me about 30 minutes to complete.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes, or more to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 pound ground beef
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- Cooked rice, for serving
Step 1: Whisk together the brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes and ginger.
Step 2: Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the garlic, stirring for about 1 minute. Add the ground beef, cook until browned and drain excess fat.
Step 3: Stir in the soy sauce mixture and green onion until combined. Simmer for about 2 minutes.
Step 4: Serve over rice and enjoy!
Mike isn’t always up for spicy flavors and I think this was almost too spicy for his palate. I ended up adding a little sriracha to mine to bump up the heat and it was delicious and very filling.
Thanks for reading and be sure and check back tomorrow to see how I made my indoor herb garden.
