These Korean Ground Beef bowls are an easy and quick ground beef recipe, perfect for weeknight dinners! The flavors of beef bulgogi made easy using ground beef!
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.
To make this Korean Beef Bowl, I started with an easy ground beef stir fry – just brown the beef and add the sauce. I served the Korean 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!
