Watch how to make it here

This Korean-inspired vegan beef rice bowl is the perfect, quick budget-friendly meal for those busy days. It doesn’t get any better than this!

A few notes:

  1. Impossible food was used for the vegan ground meat but any other brand will work in this recipe.
  2. Gochugaru is highly recommended for this recipe. If not accessible, combine equal parts paprika and cayenne pepper. It will taste different but works as a substitute.
  3. White rice or noodles such as udon or ramen would pair well with vegan ground beef.
  4. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
