There is one thing that I can count on all of my kids to eat and it is this recipe for Korean Ground Beef Rice Bowls. In fact, my cute ten year old makes it for the family each week. I decided to switch it up a little when we made it this week and turn it into a stir fry! Let me tell you. This was so incredible with fresh veggies added. The sauce is the absolute best on this and it makes the flavor out of this world good. We are reminded every single time that we make it why it is a favorite at your house. I know that it will become a favorite at your house, and if my ten year old can make it, you can too!

How do you make stir fry?

  • In a large skillet cook the ground beef and garlic breaking it into crumbles over medium heat until no longer pink. Remove and set aside on a plate.
  • Drain the grease and add olive oil and veggies and cook until tender. Add the ground beef back to the skillet.
  • In a small bowl whisk brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, red pepper flakes and pepper. Pour over the ground beef and let simmer for another minute or two.
  • Serve over hot rice and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds

    I like many of the recipes I have made from this site, but I’m sorry to say my family did not care for this one at all. I thought 1/2 a cup of brown sugar sounded like a lot, so I decreased it to about 1/3 cup, and it was still WAY too sweet. My teenagers wouldn’t eat it, and they’re pretty adventurous eaters. My husband actually told me not to make it again, it was that bad. I tried to like it, but I have to agree with them. It reminded me of some type of Asian sloppy joes, and not in a good way. I’m know for being a very good cook, so it’s really upsetting to me that my family was disappointed and I wasted my time and good ingredients on this recipe.
