Korean BBQ Sloppy Joes will be your new favorite weeknight meal – it takes a mere 20 minutes to throw together with only FIVE ingredients! Lean ground beef is sautéed with red bell pepper and green onions, tossed with store bought (or homemade) Korean BBQ sauce, and served on hamburger buns.
There’s nothing I love more than a meal that takes under 20 minutes to make – even better if it has minimal ingredients and easy prep. And even BETTER if I know my whole family will love it – and they sure did!
These sloppy joes are almost like Korean bulgogi, served on a hamburger bun. Authentic Korean Bulgogi is made with sliced beef and a homemade marinade, but using ground beef gives a similar flavor. You may also like to add some gochujang (Korean Chili Paste) for some extra flavor and spice to the sloppy joe mix.
As for the Korean BBQ sauce? Feel free to make your own, but I love using store bought as a shortcut. There are all kinds of prepared Korean BBQ sauce out there – some spicy, some not… I’ll share which kind I used and where to find it in this post!
