20 Minute Korean Beef Bowls! A shortcut version of traditional Korean Beef served over white rice!
This 20 Minute Korean Beef is the perfect meal for a busy weeknight. The beef gets served on top of white rice and garnished with sesame seeds and green onions. You could also subsitute cauliflower rice or brown rice to lighten it up.
This recipe is so easy and comes together in minutes. While the beef is cooking I cook my rice and mix together the sauce ingredients. The sauce is made up of soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic and ginger. It is so simple yet so amazing!
This can also be made with ground turkey or ground chicken. But ground beef is definitely my favorite! Enjoy!
