Korean Beef Bowl

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!
