We don’t know about you, but we love budget-friendly, healthy eats, and our Easy Korean Beef is both tasty and friendly on the wallet, all while being good for you. One of the best things about this recipe is its versatility. We use grass-fed ground beef in this dish, which is becoming more and more affordable at local grocery stores. We found it at our local Trader Joe’s for $5.99 a pound, and we’ve caught it on sale at other stores for less than that. Because we are using ground beef, this dish can easily be used for lettuce wraps, served with rice (great with cauliflower rice), mashed potatoes, or enjoyed alone as a high protein snack.
While we make our Korean Beef with, well, beef, you could always make it with ground turkey, ground chicken, pork, tofu, or even one of the vegan meatless crumble options that are out there. It pairs well with kimchi, which we know is great for your gut health, aka is good for your digestive system and overall well-being. Also, our Korean Beef contains no soy and no added sugars. Did we mention it is ready in less than 10 minutes? Our Korean Beef is perfect for meal prep and can be easily doubled if you need to get more servings out of it.
This recipe is all about getting a lot of flavor from just a few, budget-friendly ingredients. Make sure you search around for the best deals on these ingredients. We found everything we needed for this recipe at our local Trader Joe’s, all for a really great price.
