Korean-Style Turkey Mince Bowl

This is my take on the Korean beef bowl, but substituting leaner minced turkey for the beef. In this dish the mince is cooked with an onion, garlic and ginger base and flavoured with soy sauce, oyster sauce and hoisin sauce. This results in a deeply savoury mince with a hint of sweetness. It is finished off with a garnish of spring onions, sesame seeds and chilli flakes for a restaurant quality dish that can be cooked within 20 minutes! Perfect for a tasty quick and easy mid-week meal.
