A New Recipe!

My friend Shelley recently posted a recipe that intrigued me–Korean Beef Bowl. I looked  up the recipe and had to try it. Yummy! It reminded me of when I went with Shelley to Pei Wei and had their lettuce wraps. But I thought maybe there were more vegetables in their beef combo. So I tried the recipe again, and added some vegetables. Oh so yummy, and I used half the amount of beef from the original recipe. I added carrots, mushrooms, and onions that I chopped up in my mini food processor, and some water chestnuts from a little can that I just chopped up by hand. I also used half the amount of brown sugar–1/8 of a cup still made it plenty sweet.

Here’s what I subbed in:

  • 3 carrots
  • 1/2 large onion
  • 7 brown mushrooms
  • 1 small can water chestnuts
  • cilantro

I cooked the veggies first in the 1 Tbsp of oil, and then I took the veggies out of the pan and cooked the beef. I use the 90/10 ground beef, 1/2 pound.

Here’s how I ate it. It took me a while, but I finally figured out how to make lettuce wraps.


And just for fun, here are some pictures of the dogs.

  1. I love that you used the recipe as a starting point for customization…I’m going to add more veggies next time I make it. And yes, the amount of sugar definitely can be reduced – it still tastes amazing. 😊

  2. I love love love the lettuce wraps at PF Changs – they use ground chicken but otherwise I think it is exactly like what you made above. And now that I think about it, isn’t Pei Wei owned by PF Changs???
