Reviews forKorean Beef and Rice
"Wow! This is a great dish and a winner with everyone in our house!! I love that it is so quick to make and has items I almost always have in the pantry. I made it exactly as written. I think it would be great with beef strips or chicken as well. I will be making this A LOT :) Thanks for sharing such a great dish!"
"This is delicious. I made it with sliced chicken breast meat, onion straws, and sliced carrot. Didn't have the low-sodium soy sauce, so it was just a little bit saltier but it was still so good. I also thickened it a little bit with a cornstarch slurry. We like hot stuff, so I sprinkled in some cayenne. Will definitely make again with the beef."
"The sauce is the key with this dish. It can go not only with the ground beef, but beef strips, pork, chicken, seafood, etc. I do advise that if you decide to do the ground beef that you drain it before adding the sauce. Only change I made is that I used ginger paste instead of ground because it mixes better with the liquid ingredients. I added just a touch more than the recipe called for. I will definitely save this recipe and it is in the ways I described above. I"
"I've been making this for a few years, and we LOVE the flavor. I like the ease of prep and cleanup too. I tend to double the sauce ingredients because we put it over rice; any kind of onion will work fine. If you like the ingredients, you'll enjoy this dish."
"The taste was great. It will be on our supper rotation. I made this dish again last night. I sometimes use steak instead of hamburger and put in the crackpot for several hours."
"Wow! Great recipe! I added snow peas to it, and had a wonderful meal with this and crescent rolls. Be sure to make it with 90% lean beef though. I goofed on that, it had too much fat/grease. Still wonderful flavor!"
