Korean Beef Bowls Meal Prep

These Korean beef bowls consist of thinly sliced marinated beef, vegetables, served over brown rice. It’s a tasty bowl that can be made ahead in large quantities for weekly meal prep.

It’s been a hectic few weeks so we’ve been doing a lot of meal prep. The latest one are these Korean beef bowls, and they may be my favorite one so far because I just love Korean-style marinated beef. The beef is so flavorful!

You can serve it with whatever vegetables you desire. I chose broccoli because I still had a Costco bag of broccoli to use up.

What I especially love about making your own marinated beef at home is that you can adjust the marinade to your liking. I often find ones I eat at restaurants to be too salty, too sweet, etc. But at home, I can adjust it until it’s just right for me. Feel free to make any of your own adjustments too.

  1. l Sounds delish, but why olive oil, for an east asian dish – doesn’t match, at all! Olive oil has such a different flavor profile – and, I know whereof I speak, ha ha! Cooking teacher in the greater boston area – smart, sophisticated students

    • Olive oil is an ingredient many people have on hand so that’s why we use it a lot to make things easier for our readers. You can use your favorite cooking oil for this recipe – we hope you enjoy it!

  2. What rice wine did you use? 

    • I use shaoxing rice wine, a common chinese cooking rice wine. Other brands work too. They can usually be found in the same aisle as soy sauce, and other cooking sauces for asian grocery stores
