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 (1½ cups for 4 servings) in a small pot. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until water has absorbed and rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Turn off heat; keep covered until ready to serve. Meanwhile, trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens.

Pickle Cucumber

In a medium bowl, combine half the vinegar, ½ tsp sugar (1 tsp for 4 servings), and a pinch of salt. Trim ends from cucumber. Using a peeler, shave cucumber lengthwise into ribbons, rotating until you get to the seedy core; discard core. Toss ribbons into bowl with vinegar mixture. Set aside to pickle, tossing occasionally.

Cook Carrots
