Would I Make It Again? – Korean Beef Bowl

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.”

By 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.

Spoiler Alert! This Korean Beef Bowl recipe by Damn Delicious has become one of my go-to recipes. I’m probably making it twice a month now.

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.

Recipes to Try

Do you ever get in a recipe rut? I do, but that’s mainly because I could eat tacos five nights a week. Okay, it’s 7 nights a week, but who’s counting? Unfortunately, the children in my household aren’t as enamored with tacos as I am. Clearly, I’ve gone wrong somewhere in their child-rearing.

I ran across 3 intriguing recipes recently. One of them I tried and loved. Two of them I haven’t tried yet, but for mainly legit reasons.

Read on and I’ll justify my inaction…

NIGHT CEREAL: SAVORY QUINOA RECIPE

I use quinoa in my Dave’s Killer Bread CopyCat Recipe, but other than that, I don’t cook with it regularly.

This recipe from Alice and Lois has me thinking I should give it another try.

Plus, I’m a sucker for a pretty picture.

APPLE SPICE MUFFINS WITH BAKED BEANS

Beans in muffins? I can’t believe I typed that. It sounds so weird. Someone needs to try it and tell me if this recipe from TidyMom is for real.

I would do it myself, but there are some ingredients I can’t get in Ireland. Bush’s Honey Baked Beans are one of them. Who’s going to do it? Come on, help a girl out!

These Apple Spice muffins with Struesel Topping have a suprise ingredient that packs them with fiber!! Applesauce, spices, baked beans, crumb topping, vanilla glaze combine to create a delicious breakfast treat or afternoon snack. Bake a batch and enjoy the warm fall flavors! muffin recipe at TidyMom.net

KOREAN BEEF BOWL

This is one recipe from the blog Damn Delicious that I tried and it was that delicious.

This was a fast, easy-to-make meal and an unexpected way to use ground beef. Plus, the ingredient list is small and includes items you most likely have on your shelf. For real.

Even my picky 6-year-old said he really liked this “chicken.” HAHAHAHAHA!

I think you could add some veggies to the recipe if you want to make it a one-pan meal, but you might need to increase the sauce.

Try these recipes and let me know if they made your mouth smile and your belly happy. Or were they just too weird? Do I need to mention the beans in muffins again?
