Ingredients

For the bulgogi marinade:

  • 6 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp mirin or rice wine
  • 1 small onion grated
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 pinch black pepper & salt
  • 1 lb ground beef

Sides:

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 onion onion sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic sliced
  • 1.5 cup mushrooms
  • 4 servings cooked rice
  • 1 carrot optional
  • 1 zucchini optional
  • 1/2 purple cabbage optional

Instructions

The Marinade:

  • In a large bowl, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, mirin, grated onion, minced gralic, and black pepper. 
  • Mix to combine then add your ground beef to the bowl and mix it together. Set it aside in the fridge for 30 minutes.

The Sides:

  • While the beef is marinading, cut up a carrot and zucchini, tossed it with some olive oil and salt before roasting it in the oven for 20 minutes at 400F.
  • Slice up an onion and some mushrooms and set it aside.

The Beef Bowls:

  • Start with a drizzle of oil in a hot skillet and saut√© the onions before adding in the garlic. Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add your ground beef to the skillet. 
  • Let the beef cook on medium-high heat but be sure to break up the beef with a wooden spoon so that as the beef browns, it browns evenly.
  • Once your beef is almost finished cooking, add in your mushroom. Add more salt & pepper as needed. Continue to cook until done.
  • Serve with your optional sides immediately or pack for later in your meal prep containers.

Notes

I've included the carrot and zucchini in the calorie count.
