Korean Rice Bowl Recipe

If you need a quick and easy recipe that has an Asian flair, then give this recipe a shot.

For ingredients you are looking at a pound of hamburger/ground beef and some rice. The rest you should have in your pantry, even if you are moderately prepared.

The only thing you need to plan for is the cooked rice. Personally I like using my Instapot to cook rice. It takes only about 15 minutes.
