20 Minute Korean Beef and Rice Recipe

I have been on a ground beef kick lately.  I guess because it is quick and easy to cook, and it is a great vessel for sneaking vegetables into dinner.    This is another old recipe that I have dug up and edited.  Korean Beef and Rice is an awesome recipe if you’re in a time crunch, or if you’ve got picky eaters.  Cook it up even quicker by using minute rice!

I served ours with steamed broccoli and some pineapple for dessert.  You can really choose any vegetable you wish to go along side of this dish.  Some of our favorites are snow peas, zucchini, broccoli and peas.
