My friend Hannah is a dietician, and an amazing cook. I think those things just go hand in hand. Whenever she invites me to hang out, she always cooks me a delicious dinner. Last time I was at her place, she made me her version Korean beef bowls. They were amazing.

I have made Korean beef bowls a good number of times in the past, but I adored the way Hannah cooked the beef. It was tender and juicy. So, I decide to poach her beef cooking ways, combine it with some of my favorite beef bowl variations, and make this. It was a success.

The whole family liked these beef bowls.  See that sweet little hand reaching for some beef? That was not staged. That was a hungry one year old who liked what she tasted!

Instructions

Marinade

  • Combine all marinade ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Place beef in bowl and let sit for at least 30 minutes.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown each individual piece of beef for about 30 seconds a side. Remove each piece of beef as it cooks and return cooked beef to the marinade bowl.

  • Add beef and marinade back to skillet. Turn to low and cover. Simmer for about 5 minutes.

Vegetables

  • Bring about 3 cups of water to a boil in a medium sized pot. Add carrots and green beans. Boil for 3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer vegetables to the prepared ice water.
  • Let vegetables cool, then use slotted spoon to transfer to another bowl.
  • Combine vinegar, sesame oil, and brown sugar. Pour over vegetables and toss well.

Serving

  • Bring 3 cups of water and salt to a boil. Stir in rice and cover. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes, or until water is absorbed.
  • Serve beef with sauce over rice. Top with scallions and Gochujang sauce.

Notes

Gochujang sauce is spicy. If you're sensitive to spice, use sparingly, or not at all.
