Korean Beef

We have been super busy prepping for Mason's 1st Bday!! So while our dinner's have not been as in depth as usual, we are still trying to be health conscious! Tonight I decided to try a new recipe I found on Pinterest! It is called Korean Beef Bowl. This name says two things to me--delish and easy clean up! I think the recipe would be good as is, but I changed a few things as I went along! BTW--This is our new fav!! SUPER YUMMY AND EASY!!

Korean Beef Bowl

What You Need: 
-1 lb. Meat, you choose the type and cut

-Peeled and shredded ginger, maybe .5 T

    -pinch garlic salt

    -Soy sauce, enough to coat meat

    -Sesame oil, less than Soy Sauce, about 2 T

    -Sesame Seeds

    -1 Carrot, peeled and sliced thin

    -1/2 zucchini sliced thin into quarters

    -2.5 green onions

    -About 2 handfuls of Spinach

    -We used 1 serving of rice per person, but that can change depending on who you are feeding!

A Few Short Steps to a Great Meal
1.) Prep the Meat--You want to take your cut of meat, choose your fav, and slice it small and thin. The idea is that all of the veggies and meat will be done at the same time so you can pour it over the rice! You also want small enough slices so they fit in a bowl!

2.) Put all of the sliced meat into a bowl and add the brown sugar, garlic salt, soy sauce, sesame sauce, and ginger. Mix well then let it marinate while you slice up the veggies!

3.) Slice the veggies pretty thin to ensure that they all cook evenly! **You could add mushrooms, snow peas etc. I just used what was on the recipe since it what was in my house! You could always use water chestnuts instead of zucchini for example!

4.) Get your wok or large pan hot with canola oil and put in onions to give the oil flavor! You could also add garlic here, just make sure it doesn't burn! Give the onions a good stir, watch them as you get your rice going!

5.) After about a minute, maybe a little less if you use green onions as I did, add in the meat and the marinade. Let the meat cook for a while, giving a good stir every few minutes. *You don't want the meat to cook all the way here because you still have to add your veggies.

6.) After the meat has browned (5-7 mins) almost all the way through, add the rest of the veggies EXCEPT THE SPINACH and stir every minute or so. *You can watch and see the veggies cooking --they will cook quickly so don't lose focus!!

7.) When all of your veggies and meat look like they are cooked, go ahead and add your spinach! Wait about 2 minutes and it will start to wilt--now you are ready to dish up!

8.) Put rice into bowls and pour beef and veggies on top! ENJOY!!

Have a Wonderful Week!

  1. Great recipe, and healthy too. Please consider turning off your word verification. You really don't need it and blogger blocks out spam. It really detracts comments if one makes a mistake, the leave, and that stinks!

  2. Libby- That looks like a great recipe for a stir fry! I am always on the lookout for new and healthy entrees and this sounds like something I'd love to make for my family. I host a recipe swap every week and I'd love for you to come by and show off a recipe or two. Have a blessed day :)

  3. I know that you have so many blog parties to choose from so thank you for choosing Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop. This amazing post added to the party blast! Enjoy the rest of the week :)

  4. How much brown sugar is needed?
