Nervous to Try Korean Food? Don’t Be!

You may be seeing words like “kimchi” and “bibimbap” pop up more frequently in Facebook videos, magazines, recipe websites, or restaurant menus. Korean cuisine is definitely having a moment in mainstream America, and we think it’s here to stay.

Like BBQ? Try bulgogi! Kimchi is heaven for veggie-lovers. And bibimbap is a tasty mixed rice bowl with colorful vegetables, often topped with thinly sliced meat or egg. Japchae, gimbap… so much to explore!

If you’re nervous to try new foods, our EatingWell Korean Inspired Beef frozen entrée is a great starting point. Fire-grilled beef is combined with brown rice, carrots, spinach, red bell peppers and crimini mushrooms in a savory sesame garlic sauce. Happy customer Lashona said this is “hands down the best frozen lunch” she’s ever had and she “kept checking the ingredients because it tasted like it was made at home.” Another customer, Robin, said, “The beef was full of flavor and the spices danced on my tongue in a delicious jig.”

Now how could you not want to try this dish?!
