If you can’t get enough of Asian-inspired flavors, bulgogi is sure to leave you satisfied. This Korean dish centers around beef in a sesame and soy sauce marinade with a little bit of sweetness. But the meat is just one out of many highlights: there’s also crisp quick-pickled cucumbers, tender carrots, and a spicy sour cream, all over fluffy white rice—clearly, it’s jam-packed and has a little bit of something for everyone.


Produced in a facility that processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybean.

Cook Rice and Prep
Cook Rice and Prep

Wash and dry all produce. Place rice and ¾ cup water in a small pot. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer until tender and water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Keep covered off heat until meal is ready. Meanwhile, trim and thinly slice scallions, separating greens and whites.

Pickle Cucumber

Place half the vinegar, ½ tsp sugar, and a few pinches of salt in a medium bowl. Trim ends from cucumber. Using a peeler, shave cucumber lengthwise into ribbons, rotating until you get to the seedy core; discard core. Add ribbons to bowl with vinegar mixture and toss to coat. Set aside.

Cook Carrots
