Wholesome goodness any night of the week

We’re so excited to be sharing these Korean-Inspired Ground Beef Bowls with you for a few reasons. First, they are SO GOOD. Like, you’re going to be looking forward to them. Secondly, they’re fast and fresh. Fast as in on the table in under 30 minutes. Fresh, thanks to the rainbow of veggies that provide texture, crunch, color, and nutrition. And finally, they’re made with flavorful and versatile 100% Grass-Fed Net Carbon Zero ground beef from New Zealand.

In New Zealand, grass-fed means something more. The pristine and temperate climate of New Zealand produces verdant, rolling pastures of hearty grasses and sweet clover for the cattle to roam and graze year round. The result is meat that is finely textured with a complex flavor that’s delicious in any dish. For this dish, we selected new Silver Fern Farms Net Carbon Zero By Nature 100% Grass-Fed Angus Ground Beef. It is 100% premium Angus beef from New Zealand – that is tender, delicious and full of flavor, and it’s Net Carbon Zero with no added hormones, antibiotics or feedlots – ever.

Since the founding of Silver Fern Farms in 1948, they’ve not only become New Zealand’s leading procurer, processor, marketer and exporter of premium grass-fed red meat — but they’re also an industry leader in  environmental sustainability.

How to Make Korean Beef Bowls

These mouthwatering Korean-Inspired Ground Beef Bowls made with Silver Fern Farms Net Carbon Zero By Nature 100% Grass-Fed Angus Ground Beef come together super quickly, so don’t be surprised if they find their way into your regular meal rotation!

  1. Place a medium or large skillet over medium-high heat on the stovetop. When the skillet is hot, add the ground beef to the skillet, stirring and crumbling into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until cooked through. Drain off any excess liquid then return the skillet to the stove. 
  2. While the ground beef is cooking, in a small bowl, whisk together the coconut aminos, honey, sesame oil, rice vinegar, garlic, red pepper flakes, and ginger. 
  3. Add the sauce and the light green and white parts of the green onions to the ground beef. Stir and cook for 1-2 minutes to bring the sauce to a simmer and allow some of the sauce to absorb into the meat (but not so long as to evaporate).
  4. Remove from heat and serve the ground beef mixture over hot cooked rice with cucumber, radish, and carrot. Garnish with green onion and sesame seeds. Serve with sriracha or chili-garlic sauce, if desired.
  5. Store any leftovers (ground beef mixture and rice separate from the vegetables) in airtight containers in the fridge for up to 3 days.

How to Store and Reheat Leftover Ground Beef Bowls

Whether you have leftovers or are making these for meal prep with the intention of reheating them later in the week, you’ll want to store the rice and beef in separate containers  from the vegetables. Both can be refrigerated in airtight containers for up to 3 days.

  • To reheat in the microwave: Place the rice and beef in a microwave-safe dish and heat for 60-90 seconds or until heated through.
  • To reheat in the oven/toaster oven: Place the rice and beef in an oven-safe dish. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water and cover the dish with foil. Place in a preheated 350℉ oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until heated through.
  • To reheat on the stovetop: Place the rice and beef in a small skillet over medium heat with 1-2 tablespoons of water. Cover with a lid and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-7 minutes or until heated through.

Once reheated, simply add your vegetables, sesame seeds, and hot sauce, if using, and serve.

I want my bowl saucier – what can I add?

If you want your bowl saucier, you can add another splash or two of coconut aminos to the final dish. Please note that this will increase the sodium content. Hot sauce such as chili-garlic paste or sriracha are also tasty options for sauces.
