Easy Korean Beef Rice Bowl Recipe

Recently I have really been trying to clean up my eating.  I did that crazy thing that people do, and starting watch all the food documentaries on Netflix and immediately started to make some changes.  The only hard part was that I had just purchased a 1/4 beef from a local farmer, that now resides in my freezer.  As you now, red meat is very taboo in the world of healthy eating, but I have found a few recipes using it that are simple, quick, and inexpensive.  Take my Korean Beef Rice Bowls for example.

When the ground beef is nearly finished cooking all the way through, add the broccoli florets.

I lay out my bed of rice and scoop the Korean Beef over the rice and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top of it.  If you wanted to make this low carb, you can serve it over a bed of cauliflower rice which is equally delicious.  This dish has roughly 400 calories, 9g of fat 3 from saturated fat, 47g of carbohydrates, 4g of fiber, and 30g of protein.  If you use the brown sugar there will be 7g of sugar.  So see, a great healthy meal you can feed your family using inexpensive ground beef!  I know you are going to love this one so get in the kitchen and make it TONIGHT!
