This Korean Beef recipe is perfect for a quick, easy and flavorful dinner! Serve it over rice for a meal the entire family will love!

The past week or so, I have been feeling super stressed out. Mostly,  I feel like there aren't enough hours in the day to do everything I need or want to do. I have been trying to find time to step away from the computer - even for just a few hours everyday. I'm trying to find the balance between everything because I am seriously on the verge of burning out.

I made a conscious choice this past weekend to start taking care of myself. I know it sounds like a stupid thing to even have to think about. For me, it's been too easy to find excuses as to why I don't get enough sleep .... why I don't exercise ... why I'm always crabby .... and I've had it. Had. It.

While I'm not exactly sure what all of that means yet, I know it means it's time for some changes .....

Because I only have so many hours in a day and I have been feeling super stressed out, I have needed to rely on my arsenal of quick and easy dinner ideas! Seriously y'all ... dinner doesn't get any faster or easier than this Korean Beef recipe! With just a handful of ingredients and 20 minutes, you can have this amazingly simple, yet delicious dinner on the table!

    1. Hi, Dawn! I used powdered ginger for this recipe, but you can certainly use fresh if you prefer! For fresh ginger, use about a tablespoon (more or less, to taste). Hope that helps!

  9. Could we use ground turkey instead of ground beef? We don't eat much beef. This sounds really good.

  10. This is delish! Making it for the 2nd time tonight and since I really love one-skillet cooking, I'm adding some veg and doubling the sauce to accommodate the extra veg. Tonight I've added fresh mushrooms, fresh chopped zucchini and a little leftover frozen broccoli. Thanks for the recipe!

  11. Hi Jamie, my son is allergic to sesame what do you suggest I replace it with? How does olive oil sound?

    1. You can omit it completely (it's for flavor) - it will only change the flavor slightly! :)
