Beef Bulgogi Bowl
Beef Bulgogi Bowl


  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil, divided
  • 2 pounds skirt steak, sliced into thin strips
  • 4 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 cup steamed broccoli
  • 2 avocados, sliced
  • 4 large eggs, fried
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds


  1. Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, and 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a large bowl; add steak and stir to coat.
  2. Heat remaining sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef slices to the hot skillet, leaving remaining marinade in the bowl; cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  3. Pour 2 tablespoons of the reserved marinade into the pan and continue cooking until marinade develops into a sticky sauce, 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Remove beef slices to a plate.
  5. Equally divide rice, broccoli, avocado, eggs, and carrot among 4 bowls; add beef and garnish with sesame seeds to serve.
Mealthy tip:

Why limit yourself to just broccoli, carrots, and avocado? This rice bowl would also be delicious with shredded lettuce, cucumber ribbons, and/or radish slices. If you want to add a kick of heat, add a squirt of sriracha or a side of kimchi, which is bulgogi's best friend.

These beef bulgogi bowls are a for sure favorite! The sauce is really tasty, lots of good flavor. Quinoa also works really well instead of rice, that's what I used.

I really like bulgogi, and I also really like bowls, so naturally this was a match made in heaven for me! The egg was perfect, although I did a soft boiled egg instead of fried. Yum! This was such a great idea, my boyfriend and I built our own bowls, and of course he added extra meat to his! We will definitely make this again.

I LOVE this beef bulgogi recipe, it's my favorite. Honestly, it's so good on it's own, I thought that the mix-ins took away from the meat. I added egg and broccoli, which was delicious, but I wouldn't have minded eating just the beef with rice. Also, I used white rice instead of brown.

I really liked these beef bulgogi bowls. Only thing I would change is maybe add a sauce to put on top. Also, I made this with quinoa.

I used this recipe because I was looking for a quick and easy bulgogi recipe. I didn't make a "bowl" but I did serve it with plain white rice and served it with a side of broccoli. Next time I'll try the bowl, now that I've found a delicious recipe for the beef.

This was fantastic. We grilled the steak and ate it over chopped romaine instead of rice! It’s a keeper. I call it beef bulgogi Salad!

Delicious! All the reviews were right. You have to do the avocado and fried egg, it really compliments all the flavors.
