Quick and Easy Korean Ground Beef for Lunch

In a previous blog post, I shared with you some of my Korean recipes such as Tteokbokki and Bibimbap. I decided to make another Korean dish for lunch since I had some leftover ground beef and I didn’t know what to do with it. I found this easy recipe online and decided to make some Korean ground beef for lunch.

Since I’m all for healthy eating, I served the Korean ground beef with brown rice instead of white. I also added some veggies on the side for a complete meal. You can also substitute the ground beef with pork or chicken.

How to Make Easy Korean Ground Beef Bowl for Lunch

I actually taught my son how to make this Korean ground beef dish. He was probably getting bored and wanted to do something new. His dad loves to cook so he must’ve gotten it from him. My middle son is actually the calmer among the 3; probably because he is the middle child. He likes quiet activities,  being by himself and is also very organized and sticks to his schedule.

Measuring and separating the ingredients in small bowls, he displayed how organized he was. He even arranged them in order of how we would use them — just like in a cooking show! He even joked that we should make a video out of it! Well, that will come in time, right now I am still camera-shy!

The Verdict

We’re all set! Everyone was surprised to find out that it wasn’t me who cooked but my son. His brothers were teasing him that he would get fat because he would already cook his own meals. I forgot to tell you that my son is also a fitness buff and jogs everyday to keep himself fit. That thought of getting fat didn’t quite fit with him LOL!

So, here’s the Korean Ground Beef recipe that we prepared. Don’t forget to share this with your friends!
