Sweet, spicy, and an explosion of flavors loaded in this Korean BBQ burrito bowl!
A few months ago, I visited the east coast. On the way back, the kids and I were sitting in the airport during a layover, starving. I have two boys, this is pretty typical, but we had already plowed through all the snacks I had. So, the terminal we were in only had a couple options, mexican, sandwiches, or ice cream. Naturally my kids chose ice cream. I told them food first. #meanmom
Anyhoo, I got them chips and guac, and a quesadilla, and I was just going to munch on that. Thennnn I noticed all their crazy burrito bowls. I almost held off, because it was a quick airport place, so I really didn’t think it would be all that great. But I was starving, and we still had almost 8 hours until we would actually be landing in Seattle. So I ordered one.
holy moly was it good. like most burrito bowls, I couldn’t finish it, because there was just SO much in it. And I didn’t bring it on the plane with me, because that’s mean. (side note: planes are confined places, and when people bring food on, especially food that has a strong smell, I kind of want to hurl it at them. it smells as it sits there, and really its not sanitary. ew. but I digress)
anyhoo, I loved it so much, that I vowed to recreate it at home. then I got home and forgot all about it, typical, until I came across a picture of it. yay! you should be really happy about this, because Ive done it and I’m sharing it with you. and it is hands down the best burrito bowl Ive ever had. just as good if not better than the airports version. and in my opinion, since Im soooo over the classic chipotle burrito bowl, this is even better than that. but don’t take my word for it. see for yourself.
It’s loaded with coconut rice, mesquite pork that has been slow cooked in beer, fajita veggies, an asian slaw, drizzled with a spicy chili sauce, loads of korean bbq sauce, and sprinkled with fresh cilantro and shredded cheese. Its basically an explosion of amazing flavors. Do not be freaked out by the long ingredient list. It’s really not bad, and you probably have most of this already in your cabinet. Make this, share this, you will love this!
