Korean Ground Beef and Kimchi Bowl


This Korean Ground Beef and Kimchi Bowl is a fast stir fry dish that is full of hearty and robust flavors.  

I love walking through my Asian Market and looking around at all the international produce and products that I find there.  Sometimes, I must admit, it can be a bit intimidating.  I try to buy one or two items and add them to simple stir fries that I traditionally make at home and see how they taste. 

Kimchi is a very popular dish in Korea and it has also become pretty popular here in the US. I bought a huge bottle of prepared kimchi from Costco.  My kids and husband (I sadly admit) did think the fermented cabbage that is really aromatic with garlic and spices was a bit strong.  I could not eat that entire jar by myself, so I had to come up with ways of incorporating the flavors of kimchi into my cooking.  This stir fry worked out perfectly!  They loved the kimchi when it accentuate the flavors of the stir fry.

This Korean beef bowl was a home run in both flavor and fun.  So don't be shy to try the new items you see in your international market.  I can't wait to experiment more with these ingredients.
