Fast, quality suppers are an absolute necessity in our home. A couple of key fixings and some basic flavors are all you really wanted to make this exquisite meat bowl.
- Ground meat – We’ve likewise attempted this with ground pork, turkey and chicken yet our go-to is hamburger.
- Shallot – Similar to onion yet adds a more focused character.
- Ginger – Fresh ground ginger is an unquestionable requirement for us, however when absolutely necessary you can sub ground dried ginger.
- Sesame oil – Our favored cooking oil for any Asian enlivened dishes.
- Coconut aminos – Gives the hamburger that sweet-pungent character, like soy sauce. These are NOT fluid aminos, see the formula card notes.
- Fish sauce – Adds more pungent, umami flavor.
- Flavors – Garlic powder, onion powder and red pepper drops give the dish a somewhat fiery kick.
- t’s no mysterious that we love solid custom made sauces, flavors and dressings.
For this formula, we added the most effortless zesty mayo sauce that you can prepare in 1-minute! Truly, you shouldn’t avoid this sauce. It adds a smoothness to the bowl that sets impeccably with the flavorful and pungent Korean hamburger.

- The coconut aminos linked to in the recipe are the aminos we use (Coconut Secret coconut aminos). Braggs brand aminos are NOT the same thing. Braggs liquid aminos are a soy-based and much saltier than coconut aminos. If you use Braggs aminos, we suggest using only 1-2 tbsp to start and adjusting to taste. You can also omit the salt from the recipe.
- As an alternative to coconut aminos, you can make your own using our DIY coconut aminos substitute recipe.
- If you wish to omit the fish sauce, you can replace it with more coconut aminos. Since fish sauce is salty, you may need to add more salt to suit your taste.
