This Korean Beef Bowl is always a hit in our home, and I like to make it when we have guests over.  It tastes like I labored in the kitchen for hours, but it’s actually super simple and incredibly delicious.  Usually, I make it with ground beef. As a healthier alternative, I’ve been using ground turkey and it’s just as amazing!
I’m a huge foodie. I love to cook a variety of meals that are just as good as dining at a 5 star restaurant.  This recipe falls in that category for me.
Serve it with white or brown rice.  If you want to take this meal to another level, make it with coconut rice. Simply cook your rice in equal parts coconut milk and water.  Enjoy!!
For the perfect ending to this meal, try my “Famous Caramel Apple Pie.”
