TimeOdd Foody - Spicy Sesame Rice Bowls

Korean red pepper paste gives this healthy (under 500 calories!) recipe tons of flavor — a pressure cooker just makes it easy.

Spicy Sesame Rice Bowls


  • 1/3 c. Korean red pepper paste (gochujang)
  • 2 tbsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed with press
  • 1 lb. beef top round, cut against grain into very thin 2″-long slices
  • 12 oz. medium shiitake mushrooms, stemmed
  • 1 seedless (English) cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 14 c. rice vinegar
  • 5 oz. baby spinach
  • 6 c. cooked white rice, hot
  • Thinly sliced green onions, shredded carrots, kimchi and sesame seeds for serving


  1. In large bow, whisk red pepper paste, sesame oil, soy sauce, sugar, garlic and 1/4 cup of water until smooth; set aside 1/2 cup of sauce. To bowl with remaining sauce, add beef and pinch salt, tossing to coat. Let stand at least 10 minutes or refrigerate up to overnight.
  2. Add beef to pressure-cooker pot along with mushrooms. Cover, lock and bring up to pressure on high. Reduce heat to medium-low, maintaining pressure. Cook 10 minutes.
  3. While beef cooks, toss cucumber with vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon of salt; set aside.
  4. Release pressure by using quick-release function. Divide spinach among 6 serving bowls; top each with 1 cup of rice. Drain cucumbers. Top rice with beef, mushrooms, cucumbers, green onions, carrots, kimchi and sesame seeds; drizzle with reserved sauce.
