This Korean turkey recipe is definitely something out of my comfort zone but it’s actually delicious! As many of you know, for the most part I am plant based. Once in awhile I will incorporate meet into my diet and Iove this recipe for that. The protein from the turkey makes this meal filling and somewhat healthy. Keep reading to learn how I make my Korean turkey recipe.
3 lbs Ground Turkey
4 tbsp Soy Sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 yellow onion
2 tbsp of minced garlic
1/4 c brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground giner
Red chili flakes (add to your liking)
3 c cooked rice
- I like to first dice up my onions and set aside. Next, I will start to cook the ground turkey in a large frying pan until cooked thoroughly.
- While the turkey is cooking, I add all the other things together to make my sauce except for the sesame seeds.
- Once the sauce is mixed and the turkey is finished, I’ll add the onions and sauce to the frying pan and let both sit covered for about 10 minutes. This step really helps the onions to soften and the sauce and meet to mix.
- When that is finished, I plate this with some white rice and top with sesame seeds!
I think you can see why this is one of my favorite recipes. I absolutely love how fast and easy this korean turkey recipe is. This makes for a really great meal prepped dinner or lunch if you want to prep this ahead of time. I prefer turkey over beef but you can obviously swap the turkey for ground beef, chicken, or even a plant based option!
