Korean Beef Bowls, Wraps + Plates
Source: Adapted from Damn Delicious
¼ cup brown sugar, packed
¼ cup reduced sodium soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes or more to taste
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound ground beef (or chicken, or turkey or beef flank steak)
2 green onions, sliced
¼ teaspoon seeds
Lettuce or tortillas if making wraps.
- In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes and ginger
- Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add ground beef or whatever meat you are using, and cook until browned; drain excess fat.
- Stir in sauce and green onions until well combined, allowing to simmer until heated through, about 2 minutes.
- Serve immediately, garnished with green onion and sesame seeds, if desired.
If I am using a flank steak, i serve it on a plate with rice and the steak over top or in a tortilla. If I am using ground meat, I use the bowl method, the tortilla and lettuce wrap method too.
