Korean Beef Bowl Meal Prep

Tastes like Korean BBQ in meal prep form and you can have it ALL WEEK LONG! Simply prep for the week and you’ll be set. EASY!

And back on meal prep, unfortunately.

Well, it’s not unfortunate.

These meal prep boxes.

They come to an obvious close second.

These Korean beef bowls are such comfort food for me right now.

Except they are perfectly portioned with brown rice, sautéed garlic spinach, and some eggs for added protein.

It’s a full meal without getting you to overeat, or lead you to a food coma mid-afternoon.

And you know you can always swap out the ground beef for pork or chicken.

Or even crumbled tofu for a meatless version.

And I won’t be mad if you snuck in some veggies to the ground beef.

Like carrots, bell peppers, zucchini, etc.

I won’t be mad at. all.

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Tastes like Korean BBQ in meal prep form and you can have it ALL WEEK LONG! Simply prep for the week and you’ll be set. EASY!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups chopped spinach

For the Korean beef

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha, or more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame seeds

Directions:

  1. In a large saucepan filled with 2 cups of water, cook rice according to package instructions; set aside.
  2. Place eggs in a large saucepan and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Cover eggs with a tight-fitting lid and remove from heat; set aside for 8-10 minutes. Drain well and let cool before peeling and slicing in half.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in spinach until wilted, about 2-3 minutes; set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil and Sriracha.
  5. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add ground beef and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; drain excess fat.
  6. Stir in soy sauce mixture and green onions until well combined, allowing to simmer until heated through, about 2 minutes.
  7. Place rice, eggs, spinach and ground beef mixture into meal prep containers, garnished with green onion and sesame seeds, if desired.

These are perfect for meal prep. I love this flavor combo

A nutrition charts would be helpful

Vanessa, if you use a service like MyFitnessPal, you can easily create the nutritional chart yourself 🙂 It’s pretty easy, and the mobile app will actually do a lot of the work for you. I’m kind of obsessed with it myself!

The calculations didn’t come out so great – those watching their waistlines could easily use slightly less olive oil, leave out egg (already 25 grams protein w/o egg) and use lean ground beef or alternative lower-fat meat. I might even sub most or all of the olive oil with vegetable broth to cook up spinach. It looks too good not to try, thanks for sharing!

If you can’t enjoy a meal without asking your calculator first, then maybe there are bigger issues here than the egg.

Some people are trying to lose weight, ANNA.

Some people are trying to make sure they are losing weight by not over eating. A calorie calculator is helpful with that as it keeps them on track. It’s not that they don’t enjoy the meal, it’s that they would rather know what they’re eating before they over eat. No need to be rude.

You could also try reducing or eliminating the brown sugar altogether rather than leaving out the good stuff like healthy fats.

I came out with 481 calories per boxed meal using lean beef (90/10) and not adding olive oil to fry the beef. Under 500 cal is not too bad for a lunch.
