Quick and Easy Beef Dinner: Korean-Style Rice Bowl

To save time, we also Dietary Ginger Vitality Essential Oil distilled by Young Living in place of the ginger thumb.  One drop is all you need in the recipe.  On a side-note, we've also used Teriyaki sauce in place of soy sauce if we were out of soy sauce when making this recipe.  We believe the secret ingredient in this dish though is the hoisin sauce. We give this recipe top marks for a rice bowl your family will love.
