Easy Korean Beef and Rice

Korean Beef Recipe – Ready in 15 Minutes!

We love oriental cuisine, but I don’t make it much because it always looks so complicated!  And if you know me, I love to cook, but complicated isn’t always my strong point 😉  That’s why I am super excited about this Korean Beef and Rice Recipe!  And actually, I made it with ground turkey here but I have made it with ground beef countless times, just use whatever you have on hand.  If you like to cut down on red meat when you can, and this is definitely a recipe where we couldn’t tell the difference.

I also mixed quinoa in with the white rice, and my husband said he could barely tell 😉  I don’t know about you, but I am all about sneaking the good stuff in when I can!

  1. This recipe sounds wonderful and I love the fact that its done easily , Checking over the ingredients and I have everything on the list, so that”s a plus for me to try this 🙂 and it also looks very tasty.

  2. I’ve made one with some of the same ingredients that is excellent. It’s similar, but different – all your ingredients (except ginger), but hoisin sauce instead of the brown sugar, chicken broth, broccoli, red wine, corn starch, and more garlic….and It makes a great broccoli in garlic sauce. I found that recipe somewhere and try every variation I find. This one looks great. I just saved your recipe. thanks.

  3. I’ve never tried it. I’m open to new foods as long as the recipe doesn’t call for fish sauce. I can’t take the smell of it.

  4. Looks soooo good. I can’t believe how eady it is compared to how complicated I imagined it would be. The sauce ingredients sound delicious too. Thanks for giving me a new recipe to make.
