Reviews forKorean Beef and Rice
"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!"
"It was okay. Followed the recipe, a bit bland for Korean. Fresh grated ginger and regular soy sauce would help. If I make it again I'll have to experiment with the flavors."
"We have been making this into burgers. We mix the hamburger and the spices, oil, and sesame sauce the night before to get the flavors blended. The next day we make patties and grill them. We add green onions as a topping. Using very lean meat helps keep the patties together. The oil and sauce keep it from getting too dry."
"easy and fast! Excellent taste!"
"This was quick and tasty for a weeknight meal. It had good flavor and the family loved it! Thanks for sharing!"
"This was wonderful (added some broccoli). Had almost half of it left so I broke up (into large pieces) 2 pkgs. of Maruchan oriental flavored ramen, boiling them in 3 cups (instead of 4) of water in a large saucepan for the required 3 minutes. Didn't have to drain any excess liquid. Added both packets of its seasoning and then mixed in the Korean beef which I had gently reheated in the microwave. Made a great, slightly different, 2nd meal as well. I did the ramen because my son doesn't like reheated white rice. Also, you might be able to get by only using 1 pkt. of the seasoning but I found 2 worked well."
