How to Make Korean Style Beef
For this recipe, you're going to need the following:
- 16 ounces Trifecta beef or bison patties
- 16 ounces Trifecta white rice
- 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1/4 cup liquid aminos
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes
- 1 small bunch scallions
- 1 1/2 cups shredded carrots
- 1 cup kimchi
- Optional: 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
- Optional: 1 clove garlic, minced
- Saute pan
- Cooking spatula
- Sharp knife
- Small mixing bowl
Prepping Your Ingredients
Turning beef patties into crumble, whether from your Trifecta order or just using leftover hamburger, is simple.
Just pop the patties into a microwave for about a minute - just enough to slightly warm them up. Then break them apart with your hands and set aside.
Prep your scallion by washing and chopping into small pieces, separating the white ends from the green.
In a small mixing bowl, combine liquid aminos, honey, vinegar and water.
Tip: liquid aminos taste similar to soy sauce but have much less sodium and make this dish gluten-free!
Cook Your Beef and Veggies
Add sesame oil to a large saute pan and warm over medium-high heat.
Add in scallions, leaving 2 to 3 tablespoons of green ends aside for garnish. Saute until onions cook through and start to brown.
Add your shredded carrots and saute for another 1 to 2 minutes to soften.
Tip: For more flavor, add in fresh minced ginger and garlic with your carrots.
Then add your beef crumble and sauce mixture, stirring everything together to mix well. Season with chili flakes to desired level of spiciness.
Let cook for 3 to 5 minutes until the sauce begins to thicken and get absorbed by the beef mixture.
While your beef cooks, warm your rice in a microwave for 2 minutes.
Building the Bowl
Using a food scale or measuring cups, evenly divide the rice between four plates or meal prep containers (4 ounces per portion). Then top your rice with the beef mixture -evenly distributing between four servings.
Top off kimchi. Garnish with scallions and sesame seeds, and enjoy!
