Becoming a mom has brought me a whole sense of wonder and joy. But motherhood is a balancing act—living in the present, being efficient with my work, enjoying a daily workout, and managing and organizing meals for my family.

Don’t get me wrong: I love cooking for my family, but it’s hard to cook fresh meals every night. Sometimes I order takeout, but it's so expensive, so I’m constantly looking for cost-effective alternatives that don’t compromise on quality and taste. I embrace frozen foods as the epitome of convenience and one of my favorites is Kevin’s Natural Foods Korean BBQ Beef at Costco.

Why I Love Kevin’s Natural Foods Korean BBQ Beef

Korean BBQ beef, also known as bulgogi, are thin slices of ribeye, tenderloin, or sirloin marinated in a sweetened soy sauce. The ingredients and flavors vary household by household.

If you buy this at Costco, you get two pounds of fully cooked beef strips packed in two pre-portioned pouches and a soy-free bulgogi-style sauce made with coconut aminos, garlic, and toasted sesame seeds. While it may lack that smoky, grilled flavor I get from bulgogi from traditional Korean restaurants, the beef remains tender when cooked and the flavor-packed sauce tastes savory, salty, and slightly sweet.

While bulgogi is easy to make, sometimes I have limited time to prep so I just turn to Kevin’s Natural Foods Korean BBQ Beef. It's a protein-rich, filling, quick, and easy weeknight meal. Buying good quality beef nowadays comes with a price tag, but this one appealed to me because it uses clean ingredients, including 100% pasture-raised, grass-fed beef.

My favorite to serve this Korean BBQ beef is over jasmine rice with steamed broccoli on the side or between toasted buns. You could serve it with noodles, on your favorite greens, in tacos, or lettuce wraps. The options are endless.
