KOREAN BEEF BOWLS
The flavors of Korean BBQ and is on your dinner table in less than 30 min from start to finish! Seriously. It doesn’t get any easier than this!
Korean flavors seem to be taking over the food world! Before I started making Korean flavored dishes, I didn’t realize how good it would be! So good!
My husband served a church mission for 2 years in Korea and he has always loved Korean food, and would talk about dishes that he loved. I have tried kimchi and I didn’t really love it but this dish is amazing!
TIPS AND VARIATIONS
- I used leftover steak that we had in the freezer, but you can use hamburger, shredded chicken, ground turkey and chicken.
- The best rice to use is, white, brown or even jasmine. Another choice can be spiral zucchini.
- If you don’t love zucchini or carrots, you can leave out the veggies or use your favorite ones.
