I saw this recipe on Skinnytaste and knew I wanted to make it Paleo. I left the brown sugar out, used coconut aminos instead of soy sauce, and didn't bother using lean beef. With those easy swaps and I had a delicious meal that was so quick and easy. I served it with white rice because that's easier to digest than brown, but if you're doing a Whole30 make sure to use cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles.
What I love about these beef bowls is how fast they are to make. If the rice is already cooked, dinner can be served in under 20 minutes! I know I'm always looking for more easy weeknight meals and this is definitely one!
As plain as it looks, this beef is actually packed with flavor! The ginger, sesame oil, and red pepper make it so good and anything but boring! I love that 8 simple ingredients can produce something so tasty.
I looked into if this was an authentic Korean dish, thinking probably not, and it looks like it's a cheater version of Bulgogi which is made of strips of marinated beef. So I guess this is more of an "inspired by" dish.
These beef bowls offer a harmonious blend of sweet, salty, and savory flavors with the ground beef. The coconut aminos infuses the meat with a rich umami taste, while the sesame oil and seeds contribute nuttiness and depth. The optional toppings of green onion or sesame seeds provide a variety of textures and a touch of freshness, making this dish a well-rounded and satisfying meal
