I found this recipe through Pinterest, and we have all fallen in love with it. The flavor is so good, yet there are very few ingredients and it is very simple to make. The original recipe is by Lizzy Writes, and I have changed nothing. Her suggestion about ginger has also been very helpful — freeze it. She chops it into sections, which I am trying, but I’ve also discovered that grating it fresh and wraping the grated ginger in aluminum foil to freeze it works as well.
1 pound lean ground beef
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 – 1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
1/2 – 1 teaspoon crushed red peppers (to desired spiciness)
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
Heat a large skillet or wok over medium heat and brown hamburger with garlic in the sesame oil. This works best if the beef is fresh or unthawed.
Drain most of the fat and add brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, and red peppers. Simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors. Serve over steamed rice and top with green onions.
