Korean Beef and Rice Bowls

October 6, 2016

What could be easier than a hearty recipe that finishes in 15 minutes? From the Taste of Home Simple & Delicious cookbook, this Korean Beef and Rice Bowl is super fast with amazing flavor. I always have brown rice cooked ahead of time to make this lightning fast, and the family knows that if we are running short on time, we can count on this meal being filling and tasty. 

Ground beef is seasoned with a unique Asian styled sauce and served on top of brown rice. Top with delicately flavored green onions (or on our farm, with chopped chives) and it's going to be a family favorite.
