Ground Beef Bulgogi Bowls

with Carrots, Cucumber, and Sriracha Crema over Jasmine Rice

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 eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Make Rice and Prep

Wash and dry all produce. Place rice and 1½ cups 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 5 tsp vinegar (1 bottle; save rest for beef), 1 tsp sugar, and a few pinches of salt in a medium bowl. Trim cucumber ends. Using a peeler, shave cucumbers lengthwise into ribbons, rotating until you get to the seedy core; discard core. Add ribbons to bowl with vinegar and toss to coat. Set aside.

Cook Carrots

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat (use nonstick if you have it). Add carrots and cook, tossing, until tender but still a little crisp, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Cook Beef

Heat a large drizzle of oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Add scallion whites and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add beef and a pinch of salt and pepper, breaking up meat into pieces. Cook until browned, 5-7 minutes. Stir in 1 TBSP sesame seeds (1 pack). Pour in remaining vinegar. Cook 30 seconds, then stir in bulgogi sauce and bring to a simmer. Remove pan from heat. Season with salt and pepper.

Make Sriracha Crema

While beef cooks, stir together sour cream and sriracha (to taste) in a small bowl. Stir in water 1 tsp at a time until mixture has a drizzling consistency. Season with salt.

Finish and Serve

Fluff rice with a fork and stir in 2 TBSP butter. Season with salt and pepper. Divide rice between bowls. Arrange beef, carrots, and cucumbers on top, next to each other. (TIP: Drain any excess liquid from the cucumbers before adding.) Drizzle crema over everything. Garnish with scallion greens and remaining sesame seeds.
