20 Minute Korean Ground Turkey Bowls

5 from 6 reviews


  • 20 ounces lean ground turkey – I used 93% (my grocery store sells the 20 oz ground turkey containers, but if yours doesn’t, you can be less specific in amount. A pound or a pound and a half will work fine)
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (or Tamari if gluten free)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • Green onions (just the sliced green tops) and sesame seeds as optional garnishes!


  1. Make your sauce: Add all sauce ingredients (soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, and pepper flakes) into a bowl and whisk well to combine
  2. Brown your turkey: In a large skillet over medium high – high heat, add your coconut oil. When hot, add your turkey and season with salt and pepper. Break up with a wooden spoon or spatula until turkey has begun to brown but is not yet cooked through
  3. Add your sauce to the turkey and cook until the turkey is cooked through and the sauce has thickened/cooked into the turkey – this will only take a few minutes
  4. Serve over rice (white or brown) or quinoa and top with green onions and sesame seeds if desired!
