MY OTHER RECIPES


And back on meal prep, unfortunately.

Well, it’s not unfortunate.

I just miss the mardi gras colored dumplings.

The churros with soft serve ice cream.

The Hello Kitty dim sum.

The 32cm ice cream cone.

But hey.

These meal prep boxes.

They come to an obvious close second.

Am I right?

No, but really.

These Korean beef bowls are such comfort food for me right now.

Except they are perfectly portioned with brown rice, sautéed garlic spinach, and some eggs for added protein.

It’s a full meal without getting you to overeat, or lead you to a food coma mid-afternoon.

And you know you can always swap out the ground beef for pork or chicken.

Or even crumbled tofu for a meatless version.

And I won’t be mad if you snuck in some veggies to the ground beef.

Like carrots, bell peppers, zucchini, etc.

I won’t be mad at. all.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups chopped spinach

For the Korean beef

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha, or more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame seeds

Directions:

  1. In a large saucepan filled with 2 cups of water, cook rice according to package instructions; set aside.
  2. Place eggs in a large saucepan and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Cover eggs with a tight-fitting lid and remove from heat; set aside for 8-10 minutes. Drain well and let cool before peeling and slicing in half.

  4. In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil and Sriracha.
  5. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add ground beef and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; drain excess fat.
  6. Stir in soy sauce mixture and green onions until well combined, allowing to simmer until heated through, about 2 minutes.
  7. Place rice, eggs, spinach and ground beef mixture into meal prep containers, garnished with green onion and sesame seeds, if desired.
