Korean BBQ Beef


My favourite thing to order at our local Korean restaurant is BBQ beef. I love to make it at home because ground beef is cheap, it’s delicious and only takes 20 minutes to make. This recipe has become a weeknight staple in my house.


The sauce for the beef is made of just a few simple staples. Soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, garlic and ginger. It seriously could not be simpler. I like to serve this over rice with a side of steamed snap peas.

  • 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 Pound Extra Lean Ground Beef

In a small bowl mix together sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, ginger and garlic. Heat a nonstick fry pan over medium high heat. Brown beef in until cooked through, drain excess fat. Add sauce and green onions to the pan and allow to simmer for 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
