Recipe

This 20-minute Korean Barbecue Beef Bowl with veggies is the perfect quick, easy, and healthy dinner that will quickly make its way into your monthly rotation. Not only is it packed with the sweet, slightly salty flavors of Korean barbecue, it is full of protein, whole grains, and lots of good for you veggies. And I can always get behind a meal that is ready in no time and makes great leftovers.

Traditional Korean barbecue beef, usually called bulgogi, is made with very thinly sliced rib eye or sirloin steak that is marinated and then quickly cooked on a hot grill or cast iron skillet. And although delicious, it can be difficult to cut the beef paper thin and can also be expensive. For that reason I love making it with lean ground beef instead and adding the sauce right to the skillet to season the beef. You still get tons of flavor without the need to marinate the beef. And although not normally served with vegetables, I like to pair it with lots of crunchy fresh vegetables, kind of like you see with a traditional Korean Bibimbap. You could cook the vegetables if you prefer and if you can find some kimchi in your local grocery store, I would add that as well, or some Korean hot sauce.

    Wow, this was really good!! My kids wanted a scrambled egg on top of theirs and that was fine since they were eating all these veggies. Really flavorful and super filling. I noticed cilantro is in the ingredients but not mentioned in the instructions. We added it at the end and it was perfect.
