Delicious...simple...few ingredients...quick to prepare...top marks in our house last night... : )
Now, this recipe has been around for a few years (at least). I found it at Kitchen Simplicity, but then found basically the same recipe at Six Sisters Stuff, Damn Delicious and Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers. The oldest version seems to go back to Lizzy Writes (May, 2010). Exciting update... Lizzy Writes has revamped her recipe and turned it into Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps!
Note: Korean Beef Bowl takes only about 20 minutes, start to finish! Put on your rice before you do anything else, or it won't be ready in time.
|Korean Beef Bowl|
Korean Beef Bowl
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup soy sauce (I used “less sodium” soy sauce)
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Mix sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.
1 pound lean ground beef
2-3 cloves garlic
2 green onions, sliced
Brown ground beef in skillet. Drain off fat.
Add garlic and stir for one minute.
Stir in sauce and half of green onions.
Simmer 5 minutes.
Serve over rice and garnish with green onion.
I served this with a platter of raw vegetables, but sauteed green beans and red pepper strips would be nice. Steamed broccoli sprinkled with sesame seeds could be another option.
