    Korean Beef and Rice


    I love taking dishes like Korean Beef and Rice that are inspired from my culture and combining ingredients to make them in my home here in the USA.

    Made with crumbled ground beef in a sweet, garlic, soya, ginger and red pepper flakes sauce that makes me feel like I’m back at my grandmother’s house again. I enjoy with brown rice but you can use traditional jasmine rice too, if you like!

    To make Korean Beef and Rice, you will need the following ingredients:

    Steps to make Korean Beef and Rice


    Cook beef and garlic


    In a large skillet over medium heat, cook, breaking apart 1 pound of lean beef and 3 cloves of minced garlic for about 6-8 minutes or until beef is crumbled and no longer pink.


    Combine sauce


    In a small bowl, stir ¼ cup brown sugar, ¼ cup of soy sauce, 2 teaspoons of sesame oil, ¼ teaspoon of ground ginger, ¼ teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes and ¼ teaspoon of pepper together until mixed and combined.


    Add sauce to beef


    Pour the sauce over the cooked beef and cook on low until heated through.




    Serve with cooked brown rice and sprinkles of green onions for garnish.

    I'm obsessed with Asian culture and food in general and when I made this for my boyfriend who also happens to be Korean, he said it reminded him of his grandmas cooking! So this recipe was a total hit for sure.

    Instructions are very easy to follow and I like how good the ground beef taste, I can't say for sure if it taste like a Korean dish or not but it was good either way.

    Thanks for bringing my culture back to me, missed this dish and never knew how to perfect it until I found your recipe.

    Delicious but lacking in spices so I had to experiment with this dish.

    I had to cook it longer than said time so for that reason I'm giving it a 4 otherwise it was good.

    My kids are in love with this! I make it every Thursday for lunch and I add a little bit of soy sauce on the top too, almost as good as the spicy asian chicken wings!
