Okay, so the name isn’t exactly inticing. BUT – this is the yummiest and for reals, easiest recipe out there. It’s healthy too!
All you need is a few ingredients from your fridge/cupboard and a pound of lean ground beef. It’s seriously the easiest.
(adapted from here)
1 pound lean ground beef
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. sesame oil (I used olive oil because it’s what I had and it worked great!)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. fresh ginger, minced
1/2 – 1 tsp. crushed red peppers, to desired spice level
salt and pepper to taste
bunch green onions, chopped
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and brown hamburger and garlic in sesame (or olive) oil. Drain the fat and add brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, salt and pepper and crushed red peppers. Simmer for a few minutes to fuse the flavors. Serve over rice with green onions sprinkled over the top. I used a rice cooker and made brown rice and it saved me so much time!
Quick tip about ginger:
Get yourself a chunk of it at your local grocery store, peel it, and chunk it into 1/2″ pieces, throw in a Ziploc baggie in the freezer and you’ll have it on hand for whatever recipe that needs it! It is easy to cut frozen and this way you’ll never throw a rotten ginger root away that you didn’t get time to use!
