Author's Notes

Using regular soy sauce makes the dish too salty. If that is all you have on hand, use 3 Tbsp of soy and fill the rest with water to equal a 1/2 cup of liquid. For a gluten-free Korean beef bowl, use reduced-sodium tamari sauce, or La Choy Lite Soy Sauce.

To lighten the dish, use ground turkey or ground chicken.

Sesame Oil serves the purpose of adding flavor, so substituting another oil will not have the same effect.

Red Pepper Flakes add a bit of spiciness to balance the sweet. If you are sensitive to spice, use 1/8 tsp.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the Ground Beef (1 lb), breaking up with a spoon. Cook until browned, about 5-7 minutes. Drain off excess grease.
step 2
Reduce heat to medium and add the Garlic (5 cloves), Fresh Ginger (1 Tbsp), and Sesame Oil (1/2 Tbsp). Cook for 1-2 minutes.
step 3
Stir in the Gluten-Free Reduced Sodium Tamari Soy Sauce (1/2 cup), Brown Sugar (1/3 cup), and Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/4 tsp). Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, uncovered, until the sauce reduces, about 5-7 minutes. Stir in the Scallion (1 bunch).
step 4
Serve immediately over White Rice (to taste) and garnish with preferred toppings.
