Sometimes I ask my kids what they want for dinner when I’m not sure what to cook.
I don’t know why I ask these things!
Their answers are always predictable and not something that counts as “well balanced for a Tuesday night when I’m still making an effort with this dinner thing.”
Thursday Friday night all bets are off though.
When I don’t know what to cook, I
cook tacos fall back on my staple of go-to recipes.

Now, I’m a mom who is responsible for everyone’s digestive health. Fiber is important y’all.
I’m also a mom who likes to keep things simple. One pan meals speak to my soul.
That’s why I take this particular recipe and add veggies to it.
Whatever I have in my refrigerator at the time works.
Last week when I made it I even grated a zucchini into the pan with the meat and no one noticed. If someone does ask what that “green stuff” is, I just say “seasoning.” Tricky, tricky!
Other than adding veggies, I don’t tweak the recipe at all, which is a rare thing for me to say.
Would I make this recipe again? YES.
Should you make it?
If you’re in the mood for a little something sweet for dinner, then yes.
If you want a recipe that’s adaptable and forgiving, then yes.
If you want a recipe that reheats pretty decently for lunch the next day, then yes.
If you need a new way to cook ground beef, then yes.
My picture isn’t as pretty as the one from the recipe and we didn’t eat it with chopsticks, but I guarantee you it tastes delicious!
My tip would be to double the sauce part of the recipe – especially if you add veggies. I like things saucy!
No matter how you make it, just do it. You’ll be happy you did.
Again, here’s the Korean Beef Bowl recipe from Damn Delicious.
