Easy Weeknight Korean Beef

Tuesday, July 18, 2017


This is a tried and true recipe that everyone in my household loves. Korean Beef. This is not authentic korean beef. But the flavors arw close , eveb with it being Americanized. Sweet, spicy carmelized ground beef over steamed rice. So good. And it is so quick to put together. And inexpensive to make. You can always add steamed veggies to the meat to make it more substantial. If I have fresh broccoli or cauliflower , I will usually serve it on the side. But it is just as good without the veggies. 1/4 c of brown sugar is enough for us ( and a scant one at that) , but you can add up to 1/2 c if you like the meat a bit sweeter. And you can sub  the Sriracha sauce for crushed red pepper. I usually use the crushed red pepper, but my husband prefers the Sriracha. There are never any leftovers with this one.
