Korean Beef with Rice
I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for a new dish to make for dinner to break up the monotony of the same old, same old.
I mean, there are only so many ways that you can make chicken, and I think I’ve pretty much tried them all. Frankly, we eat so much chicken around here that I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see one of us begin to molt.
This Korean Beef recipe is wonderfully different.
I just stumbled upon it a few months ago in my quest for a new entrée to add to my rotation, but it’s quickly become a family favorite. My guys love it because it has a lot of flavor, carbs, and, well, beef. And I love it because it’s a cinch to whip up quickly after a long day, I usually have all of the ingredients on hand, and it has a wonderful sweet, salty, and spicy flavor profile. Typically, I serve it with a side of steamed broccoli for a quick and delicious meal, but go ahead and experiment if you’d like: stir in a spoonful of chili sauce for some added heat, fresh green beans for some added nutrients and texture, or sliced red bell peppers for some added taste and color.
Knock your socks off!

10 minutes prep time
1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 – 1 teaspoon crushed red peppers (depending on how spicy you like it)
salt and pepper
1 bunch green onions, diced
(Use your imagination, and pretend the brown sugar is pictured in the photo below. Do you see it now? You do? Good. Thanks for appeasing me!)
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and brown hamburger with garlic in the sesame oil.
Drain most of the fat and add brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, salt and pepper and red peppers.
Simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors.
Serve over steamed rice and top with green onions.
