Is it just me, or does it seem like so many of us are rushing around this time of year, keeping up with the kids and all of their activities, busily spring cleaning or (hopefully) planning our summer vacations? If you find yourself short on time, these recipes are sure to satisfy everyone in the family. The ingredients in the Korean Beef Bowl and the Cherry Dump Cake are simple enough, the preparation is a snap, and I’m betting you’ll have a dinner table full of happy faces.
Korean Beef Bowls
- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
- 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
- Salt and pepper
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup low-sodium chicken or beef broth
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes plus more to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger or 1 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger
- 4 green onions, chopped, divided
- Hot, cooked rice
First, start your rice so that it will be ready about the time you finish up with the beef.
In a large skillet, brown the hamburger meat with 2 of the green onions and garlic. When cooked through, drain the excess grease.
In a separate bowl, mix together soy sauce, broth, brown sugar, one green onion, sesame oil, ginger and red pepper flakes.
Stir sauce into beef mixture, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Serve over warm rice; Garnish with the remaining green onion.
