Korean Beef Veggie Bowl

Korean Beef Veggie Bowl Recipe

October 5, 2018

Korean Beef Veggie Bowl is an easy one or two person recipe, and you can increase the heat (or lower it…especially in my case) to meet your tastes. This is a healthy lunch or dinner idea that can be made easily without much fuss.

Grate garlic and ginger into a hot pan to provide tons of flavor. Add tahini (which is simply ground sesame seeds….it’s amazing), and tamari (gluten-free soy sauce) in order to make a sauce. Stir in the ground beef….and – deliciousness awaits. Top that on a bowl of veggies, or into a lettuce cup. If you need to cook those veggies first, simply sear them in the sauté pan after you’ve cooked the beef.

Optional but a great finish to the dish is to top the bowl with ground sesame seeds…and there you have it!

Makes 2 servings


  • 1 cup grass-fed ground beef, fully cooked
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)

  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Veggie ideas for the bowl:

  1. Spray a 10-inch sautè pan with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add garlic and stir for 30 seconds. Add ground beef, ginger, tamari, tahini, and red pepper flakes. Stir until heated through and well combined. Generally around 2-3 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat. Serve over a bowl of vegetables or veggie noodles. If making veggie noodles, simply sprinkle them with sea salt before putting hot ground beef on top. Sprinkle the top with toasted sesame seeds.

This is fantastic in lettuce wraps, topped with carrots, scallion, and sesame seeds or on top of cauliflower rice or sautéed cabbage.
