Korean Barbecue or Bust

Our take on Korean BBQ is just as tasty as it sounds. With thinly-sliced beef atop a bed of savory organic brown rice mixed with cucumbers, shredded carrots and baby spinach, it’s no wonder this dish is one of our tastiest creations!

Enjoy Korean flavors with the addition of gochujang, a sweet and spicy Korean condiment made with fermented chilis. Generally found in standard bibimbap, this savory component helps turn almost any Asian-inspired dish into a Korean classic.

Made with our Minute® Ready to Serve Organic Brown Rice, this delicious Korean-inspired dish comes together in no time at all. Try this rice bowl for your next meal prep or as a quick fix to satisfy your Korean barbecue cravings. Just remember to pick up the essentials, including tender beef, gochujang paste and soy sauce, the next time you’re at the store so that you’ll be ready when that craving hits.

For the Sriracha Fans

Want to use your favorite spicy condiment instead of Korean-style gochujang? No worries, this recipe goes great with Sriracha as well.

Microwave Recipes

Only have a microwave handy? No problem! Minute® Rice has plenty of delicious and satisfying meal options that you can make in this convenient kitchen appliance. Bring your favorite Asian flavors home with this Korean-style beef bowl, a Microwave Egg Fried Rice, or maybe a Thai-inspired Sweet Chili Chicken Rice dish.
