Korean Beef Rice Bowl with Little Leaf Lettuce

I am teaming up with Little Leaf Farms to present a second recipe on how I am using their baby crispy greens. Before going out with my sister, her husband, and our friend CP the other day, we all decided to have dinner together, and my sister pulled together this simple and easy meal for us. Simple is delicious, and this was a comforting and healthy meal. Thanks to The Recipe Critic for providing the recipe for the ground beef!

Little Leaf Farms is a high-tech and completely sustainable greenhouse that primarily grows baby green and red leaf lettuce. They’re based out of Devens, MA and only ship to retailers that they can deliver to within 24 hours — New England and parts of New York. That means their lettuce is fresher and lasts longer than most of the other brands you’ll find in your grocery store, which are typically shipped in from CA and AZ and spend a week on a truck before they even get to the store.
