Korean Beef Recipe – Ready in 15 Minutes!
We love oriental cuisine, but I don’t make it much because it looks so complicated! And if you know me, I love to cook, but complicated isn’t as my strong point 😉 That’s why I am super excited about this Korean Beef Recipe! And actually, I made it with ground turkey, we like to cut down on red meat when you can, and this is definitely a recipe where we couldn’t tell the difference.
I also mixed quinoa in with the white rice, and my husband said he could barely tell 😉 I am all about sneaking the good stuff in when I can!
I absolutely love the sauce for this recipe and it’s so easy to make. In fact, it would be delicious in other recipes…I am thinking I may try it on salmon here soon….

- ⅓ cup packed brown sugar
- ¼ cup soy sauce - I use low sodium
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons crushed red-pepper flakes, or more to taste
- ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 1½ tablespoons of minced garlic
- 1 pound ground turkey - you could easily substitute ground beef
- 2 green onions, diced
- Cooked rice and quinoa for serving
- In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes and ginger and set aside
- Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat
- Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for about 1 min
- Add ground turkey and cook until browned
- Stir in sauce mixture and green onions until well combined, allowing to simmer until heated through, about 2 minutes.
- Serve immediately with rice and quinoa - or just rice if you prefer
My husband was completely amazed that this meal was ready in just 15 minutes. I hope you and your family enjoy this Korean Beef (well, turkey…) Recipe as much as we did!
My kids even ate this one, I was worried that they would think it was too spicy, but they both really liked it!
