What is Korean beef bowl
Korean beef bowl is ground, and browned beef cooked with soy sauce and brown sugar. The green onion (spring onion) add so much flavor plus the garlic and ginger add an earthy flavor that makes this dish difficult to resist. You can use thinly sliced beef but to make this dish less expensive we are using ground beef.
The main ingredients you will need
Red chili flakes.
How to make Korean beef
You can use any ground beef, but if you want more flavor use chuck or ribeye. However, this Korean beef bowl recipe tastes great with cheap cuts too.
In a large pan, add the oil and garlic then sear the ground beef. It is important to cook the ground beef in a very hot pan to help it brown evenly.
Mix the soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, chili flakes, and ginger and add to the ground beef. Add the
green onion and cook until the ground beef is cooked through.
How to serve Korean ground beef
The Korean beef bowl is served over steamed rice, which can be jasmine rice, plain rice, or coconut milk rice. You can make this dish more interesting by adding a fried egg on the side.
How to heat Korean beef bowl
You can use the microwave, but it is better to heat the Korean beef on the stove top. Keep the heat to low medium to prevent drying the meat. If you feel that the beef is getting dry, add two tablespoon water, and continue heating.
