About the Recipe
Marion Acres Ground Beef Bulgogi Bowls
2-4 tbsp soy sauce adjust to taste (see notes)
2 tbsp packed dark brown sugar
1.5 tsp grated ginger
1 tsp gochujang Korean chili paste
2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
3 cloves garlic minced
1/3 cup finely grated Asian pear or pear puree
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
1 tsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
14 oz Marion Acres Ground Beef
Steamed short grain rice
Sliced carrot (sautéed this with some sesame oil and seeds until tender)
Chopped spring onions or scallions
Gochujang (Korean chili paste), optional
Mix all the sauce ingredients in a large bowl then place the Marion Acres ground beef in the bowl. Mix well to coat.
Heat a large pan or wok over medium high heat. Once hot, add in the sesame oil. Add in the ground beef. Stir-fry over medium high heat for 6-8 minutes or until the sauce has been absorbed and the sugars start to caramelise and coat the meat pieces.
Taste the pieces and then feel free to season with more soy sauce, sugar, or chili paste, to taste. Sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds and mix well. Remove this from the pan.
If using carrots for topping, sauté these over medium high heat with a little sesame oil until tender.
Assemble your bowls with some rice then top with the bulgogi-style beef, kimchi, carrot, sliced cucumber, spring onion/scallions and a generous drizzle of sesame oil. You can also enjoy these bowls like bibimbap (Korean mixed rice bowl) by adding some gochujang or Korean chili paste.
