Beef & Spinach rice bowl (Korean style)

Always on the look out for quick, good, easy. This one also meets that criteria. Can be spicy, or adjust the heat for your level.

  1. Main
  2. 1 lb Beef
  3. 2 bunch spinach fresh
  4. 4 cup cooked rice
  5. Sauce
  6. 4 clove garlic
  7. 3 tbsp hot sauce or gochujang
  8. 1 tbsp soy sauce
  9. 1 tbsp sugar
  10. 3 tbsp water
  11. 2 tsp roasted sesame seeds (optional)
  1. Change Cut the beef cross grain in strips for this one I had a streak I bought it on sale I cut it in thirds then cross cut those for 2 inch x 1 inch x 1/8 inch strips
  2. Season the streak strips with salt and pepper I would be light on the salt this seems to have enough
  3. Mix all sauce ingredients except for garlic
  4. Change Heat about 1 tablespoon (med to med-high) oil in a pan add chopped garlic cook for about 1 minute
  5. Change Add sauce to pan allow to boil and thicken a little
  6. Remove sauce from heat set aside
  7. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet same heat as sauce add beef to oil stir fry until desired doneness
  8. Change Remove beef to a plate when done
  9. Change Add spinach to beef pan with beef drippings same heat
  10. Change Cook until well wilted keep flipping I used tongs
  11. Change Add rice to spinach turn heat down to med stir to combine it is easier to do this before adding the rest
  12. Change Add beef back in add about half the sauce Combine well
  13. Taste add more sauce until you like it Serve sprinkle sesame seeds sliced green onions
  14. NOTES – I would imagine frozen spinach could also be used but I have not done that If you use a thin hot sauce instead of say gochujang paste add a teaspoon of flour to the water for the sauce to help it thicken A medium grain rice I think works best for this but long grain and brown is fine also
