I am obsessed with these Easy Korean BBQ Beef Bowls! Seasoned lean ground beef is cooked with onion, garlic and ginger before it meets up with BBQ sauce. If you can’t find Korean BBQ sauce, you can use your favorite BBQ sauce in a pinch! Served over white rice with a fried egg. Finally, I garnished with scallions and sesame seeds. You could also opt to serve a side of Asian slaw or Kimchi.

How to make Korean BBQ Beef Bowls

Korean BBQ sauce would be best, but … supply chain issues … I couldn’t find it. Sooooo, I opted to use traditional BBQ sauce with a bit of Sriracha to spice it up a bit. It was just as tasty.

Add BBQ Sauce

Keep the beef mixture warm while we finishing preparing the recipe.

Browned Beef

Fry an egg, sunny side up and season well with salt and pepper. Take care not to fully cook the yolk, you want it a bit runny.

Fried egg

Add your beef mixture and cooked white rice to a serving bowl.
