This dish came highly recommended by my friend Jenn, and Darin threw this meal together earlier this week. It was easy and super tasty! I love easy Asian-inspired dishes, and this fit the bill exactly. All the ingredients are straight forward, we had them on hand, and it came together quickly. We both loved this dish!
Next time, we both thought we'd like to try using 93% lean ground turkey- we're looking forward to adding this to our meal rotation again soon.
- 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp sesame oil (we use Kadoya brand)
- 1/2 tsp crushed red-pepper flakes, or more to taste
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 lb ground beef (or try ground turkey)
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced + extra to garnish on top
- Cooked rice, for serving (we used Nishiki brown rice in our rice cooker- took 1.5 hours though!)
- In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes and ground ginger.
- Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
- Add ground beef and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; drain excess fat.
- Stir in soy sauce mixture and green onions until well combined, allowing to simmer until heated through, about 2 minutes.
- Serve immediately over rice; garnish with extra thinly sliced green onions.
