Scale

Ingredients

KIMCHI AIOLI:

  • 1/3 cup paleo mayo
  • 1/4 cup kimchi
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

KOREAN GROUND BEEF:

  • 2 lbs ground beef, I used grass-fed
  • 3 carrots, cut matchstick style
  • 1/2 small sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 large garlic cloves, finely diced
  • 1 tbsp ginger, finely diced
  • 1 tsp potato starch + 1 tsp water, mix in small bowl

KOREAN GROUND BEEF SAUCE:

  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp brown monk fruit sugar
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp sriracha
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar

Instructions

KIMCHI AIOLI:

  1. Add all ingredients to a small blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.

KOREAN GROUND BEEF:

  1. Start off by adding all of the sauce ingredients to a bowl and mix until combined. Set aside.  Prep your slurry by adding the potato starch and water to a bowl and stir until combined. Set aside.
  2. Grab a 12″ sauté pan and get on medium high heat. Add in a drizzle of avocado oil and brown 2 lbs of ground beef.  Season meat with a nice sprinkle of salt and pepper. Once browned, remove from pan and drain the fat from the pan. Add in a little more avocado oil and add in the carrot and onion. Season with a nice pinch of salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Sauté for 8 min. Remove vegetables from pan and set aside.
  3. Add in a little more avocado oil and reduce heat to medium. Add in the ginger and garlic. Cook for 1 minute. Add in the sauce and stir for 1-2 minutes. Add the beef and carrot/onion mixture back to the pan and mix up. Add in the slurry and stir for an additional 1-2 minutes and drop heat to low. Let this simmer for a bit and it will begin to thicken. That’s a wrap! Top with the kimchi aioli and enjoy!

Notes

Serve this with cauliflower rice or regular rice for Paleoish.
