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!
I absolutely love the sauce for this recipe and it’s so easy to make. In fact, it would be delicious in other recipes… We have actually used this korean beef sauce on my slow cooker korean chicken as well and it was delicious.

My husband was completely amazed that this meal was ready in just 15 minutes. I hope you and your family enjoy this Korean Beef Recipe as much as we do!
My kids even ate this one, I was worried that they would think it was too spicy, but they both really liked it! In fact, it is a regular request on our meal plan.
