Korean Ground Beef is a popular dish in Korean cuisine that is made with ground beef, usually chuck or sirloin, mixed with a variety of flavorful ingredients such as soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, and green onions. The beef is typically stir-fried in a pan with the other ingredients, and can be served over rice or used as a filling for lettuce wraps. It is a versatile dish that can be served as a main course or as a topping for other dishes such as bibimbap.
Here’s a simple recipe for Korean Ground Beef:
1 lb ground beef
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon grated ginger
2 green onions, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper, to taste
In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger. Set aside.
In a pan over medium-high heat, add the ground beef and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until browned, about 5-7 minutes. Drain any excess fat.
Add the soy sauce mixture to the pan with the beef and stir to combine. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, until the sauce has thickened and the beef is fully coated.
Stir in the green onions and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve the beef over rice, in lettuce wraps, or as a topping for bibimbap.
