Korean Beef and Rice

Korean Beef and Rice

We have had the strangest weather here in Oregon this winter.  And by strange I mean, it’s been cold.  Like, COLD COLD!  We’ve had snow and freezing rain when we normally have rain.  Fifty degree rain.  Not thirty one degree rain.  We don’t really know what to do in weather like this so we’ve had school closures and I’m stuck at home, bored out of my mind.  So… I cook.

I am always looking for dinner ideas that my kids will like.  When I find one I’m more than excited.  They have super strange tastes and ideas about food and it makes meal time really difficult.  This recipe?  My kids have decided it’s their new favorite meal of all time.  That’s pretty huge and this is now a regular in our house.

I would suggest doubling the recipe.  It’ll go quickly.  It’s that delicious.
