I’m back again with an easy weeknight dinner!  This time I wanted to make an easy ground beef recipe, since almost everyone has a package of ground beef in their freezer and thinks: “What can I make for dinner with ground beef?”

Well, I have a quick and easy ground beef recipe that you will love: Korean Ground Beef Bowls.  Your family will love these rice bowls and you will love how easy they are to make.

What is a Korean Ground Beef Bowl?

The idea around these Korean beef bowls is that you take the flavors of Korean beef bulgogi but take a shortcut and use ground beef.  It ends up being a delicious dinner that takes about 20 minutes to make.

Started with an easy ground beef stir fry – just brown the beef and add the sauce.  I served the beef over white rice and topped it with a sunny side up egg.  A garnish of sesame seeds and sliced green onions is optional, but makes it pretty.

Other than being fast, easy and delicious, another thing I love about this recipe is that it has ingredients you probably already have on hand, and are actually pretty inexpensive. Ground beef and rice recipes are classic for a reason! Would you like to see more ground beef recipes on the blog?  Leave me a comment and let me know!

For Sauce:

For Korean Beef Bowls:

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 3 green onions sliced, green and white parts separated
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 teaspoons butter
  • 1 ½ cups cooked rice
  • sesame seeds optional, for garnish


  • Whisk together the sauce ingredients, set aside
  • Place a large pan over medium high heat on the stove. Add the ground beef and brown, breaking the meat up as it cooks until done, approximately 46 minutes.
  • Pour the sauce over the meat and bring to a simmer. Stir in the white parts of the green onions, cook for 34 minutes.
  • Meanwhile fry the eggs.
  • Heat a frying pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot add the butter. Once butter is melted, crack the eggs into the pan, being careful not to break the yolk. Reduce heat to low. Fry until whites are set and yolks are cooked to desired doneness, 45 minutes.
  • To make the Korean beef bowl: Add rice to a bowl, top with korean ground beef, then a fried egg.
  • Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.

  1. Love this recipe! I have made it several times using venison and it’s a hit with the whole family. I sub coconut aminos for the soy sauce and brown sugar and it turns out great.

  2. 5 stars
    This.. is.. amazing! I was looking for something different to do with my package of ground beef. Came across this recipe and figured, why not?!? Rave reviews from the entire family. Delicious as is written. After it was done I decided to double the sauce. Figured it would be great to have a little extra on the rice. I was right. Try it, you won’t be disappointed.
