You can make just about any dish that calls for soy sauce gluten free by swapping the soy sauce out with coconut aminos. However, coconut aminos does not taste exactly like soy sauce. It’s thicker and a tad bit sweeter. It’s a great option for those of us that are gluten free, but don’t go making every dish, expecting it to turn out, because it may not.
Gluten free Korean ground beef can be made sweeter or spicier depending on you and your family’s tastes. I’ve done spicier a few times, and it’s quite tasty. For the base recipe though I’ve kept it pretty mild, because not everyone likes the heat.
Can I make this with soy sauce instead?
Of course! It will swap out perfectly.
What can I use instead of sriracha?
You can simply go with a pinch of cayenne, and add to your tastes. I’ve also made this using crushed red pepper when I was actually low on sriracha.
What can I serve this over?
I love buying Jasmine or Basmati rice. Both are a great accompaniment. This dish isn’t really “saucy” so I’m not sure I’d do it over rice noodles. But you could certainly double the coconut aminos, ginger, brown sugar and sriracha to make this saucier for noodles.
If you do double those ingredients to make more sauce, and you serve it over rice noodles, I’d love to know how it turns out for you!
