Grass Fed Beef Korean Rice Bowls With Easy Homemade Sauce
This is one of those dinners for when you seriously just don’t have much time to make dinner. My usual tactic on these types of nights is to heat up some bison sausage and call it a day, but this is a really nice alternative. With the help of a rice cooker (or leftover rice in your refrigerator), this takes very little effort to put together and tastes delicious. It’s as easy as whisking some ingredients together for the sauce and browning some of our delicious grass fed ground beef - that’s it. And despite how simple it is, it’s completely craveable. Kids will love it, too. It’s the perfect easy meal for when you’re swamped with things to do or just want something yummy to curl up with and watch a movie.
A Super Easy Dinner With Convenient Ingredients
I added coconut sugar and coconut aminos because they’re my personal go-to’s for cooking Asian food. If you don’t have them on hand, any soy sauce and sugar or other sweetener will do. Add more fresh ginger as well if you like more of a kick - not to mention the wellness properties it offers. I love a big spoonful of kimchi on any Asian dish. This distinctively flavored fermented condiment offers a dose of gut-healthy probiotics and may even help boost immunity. If it’s not your thing or you don’t have any, just leave it off. It’s kind of like a spicier, saltier Korean sauerkraut.
Beef That’s Pasture Raised In Mountain Valleys
Our grass-fed & finished beef is raised essentially wild on a beautiful 20,000 acre ranch here in New Mexico. The cows roam freely as far as the eye can see with extremely minimal handling. For those familiar with New Mexico, it might sound surprising that there’s so much lush green grass for them to graze on. These fields are naturally irrigated by a sparkling river flowing with ice-melt from the Sangre de Cristo mountains. We started stocking beef due to popular demand from customers who wanted to eat this meat with the knowledge that it’s impeccably sourced.
Many people avoid eating beef because it’s often from industrial feedlots. These factory farming operations are harmful to the environment, the animals and the health of people who consume the meat. When cattle and other grazing animals are raised using sustainable agricultural practices, we can actually repair soil health and restore balance to our ecosystems. The natural rhythms of life provide the soil with everything it needs. All we have to do is stop supporting industrial feedlots and raise meat the way we’re supposed to. That’s why our mission at Beck & Bulow is to steer as many people as possible away from eating factory farmed meat.
