What is Korean Beef?

Korean beef is a delicious, flavorful, and easy to make protein! It’s traditionally made with garlic, ginger, soy sauce, brown sugar, and red pepper flakes and served over white rice. It’s often also served with kimchi and other vegetables.

This dish is so simple and cost-effective to make as it’s made with ground beef and seasonings that you likely already have on hand. Pair it with cauliflower rice, cucumber, and carrot for a fresh and easy meal!

How to Make These Korean Beef Bowls

  • Prep the sauce: Whisk together the coconut aminos, sriracha, coconut sugar, and apple cider vinegar. Set aside.
  • Cook: Using a large skillet, combine the garlic, ginger, and beef over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper. Use a wooden spoon to break up the meat into crumbles and cook until browned. Pour in the sauce and stir to fully coat the beef. Allow reducing for 1-2 minutes.
  • Serve: Serve beef topped with green onion over bowls with prepared cauliflower rice, cucumber, and carrots.

Can you use red pepper flakes instead of siracha? Or omit it altogether?

Yes, you can easily season to taste with red pepper flakes. My husband is a big siracha fan which is why I made it for him with siracha! You can also leave it out altogether for a more mild dish.

Can you use coconut aminos alternatives?

Coconut aminos is a soy sauce alternative that’s made without soy or gluten. You can easily use other options that you tolerate, but be aware of the sodium content and adjust salt to taste.

The Ingredients

Ground Beef 

Easy and cost-effective!

Coconut aminos, apple cider vinegar, and sriracha

You can omit the siracha if desired, or use rice wine vinegar instead.

Ginger and garlic

I prefer to use fresh ginger and garlic.

Cauliflower rice, cucumber, and shredded carrot

You can mix up the sides if you prefer, but I think these all pair together well.
