korean rice bowl

On a plate. I haven’t had a ton of experience with Korean food, especially after a very unfortunate experience with kim chi. (This may also explain my lack of a decent-sized bowl that would actually contain all of this) But after this delicious plate, full of flavor, I can’t wait for more!


While we didn’t follow all of the dining etiquette rules that go along with Korean cuisine, and certainly not the one requiring you to turn down a drink three times before finally accepting it, I remembered what I like about Asian meals – the ability to combine whole grains with vegetables and its use of meat as more of a condiment than a main component.

Korean Rice Bowl with Steak, Vegetables & Fried Egg inspired from Bon Appétit – 2 servings

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp ginger, minced
  • 1 Tbsp sriracha
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp brown rice vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp lime juice
  • 8 oz grass-fed sirloin
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1 large carrot, sliced into matchstick pieces
  • 1/2 red pepper, sliced into matchstick pieces
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • Sauce: 2 Tbsp soy sauce, 1 Tbsp sriracha
  1. Combine garlic, ginger, soy sauce, rice vinegar, lime juice and sriracha. Add steak and marinate for at least 30 minutes. Grill steak for about 3-4 minutes per side and let rest for 5-10 minutes. Thinly slice and set aside.
  2. Cut asparagus into 2 inch pieces and saute in pan for about 4 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Spray pan with cooking spray and add eggs to pan. Cook until whites are set, but yolks are runny, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Top rice with vegetables, meat and egg and sprinkle with sauce, green onions and sesame seeds.

Do you have any other Korean food recommendations for me?

    I haven’t dabbled too much in Korean cuisine either, but this dish looks amazing. This looks like an extremely filling meal between the high volume veggies, beef, and egg. Yum!

    as a Korean, I love this post, and definitely have reccs for you
    1. cold noodle soup bowl. I promise, it’s not disgusting. Its cold noodles in a ice cold savory-water flavored bowl. theyre usually buckwheat noodles topped with spicy sauce and cucumbers
    2. dontkatsu– indulgent, because theyre fried pork with the most delectable sauce ever
    3. and so much more! the broths/spicy soups are definitely worth a try
