Korean Beef and Rice

This dish is super easy and I had it on the table in 15 minutes!  It has the same flavors as bulgogi, a traditional Korean dish.  But, with Bulgogi, thinly sliced sirloin has to marinate for hours.  So, not only was this quick and easy it was so flavorful.  It makes 4 small servings so if you have bigger eaters or want leftovers I would double this recipe.  

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed 
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce 
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil 
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger or 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1 pound ground beef 
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced 
  • Cooked rice, for serving

  • In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes and ginger. 
  • In a large skillet over medium high heat, brown ground beef and garlic until browned making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; drain excess fat. Stir in soy sauce mixture until well combined, allowing to simmer until heated through, about 2 minutes.  Top with green onions and serve over rice.
