Korean Ground Beef and Rice

The other night I decided I was going to make something with ground beef and just because it was Tuesday didn’t mean it was Taco Night. Well I decided I would make this sweet and a little spicy dish. My daughter loved it and asked for more, which is always a plus. I hope you find this recipe easy to make and that you find it as yummy as we did! It has become a favorite in our house.


1 pound lean ground beef

3 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce

2 tsp sesame oil

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

2 cups hot cooked white or brown rice

sliced green onions and sesame seeds for garnish if desired


In a large skillet cook the ground beef and garlic breaking it into crumbles over medium heat until no longer pink.

In a small bowl whisk brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, red pepper flakes and pepper. Pour over the ground beef and let simmer for another minute or two.
