This looked like a pretty neat recipe when suggested in one of my cooking groups. Sounded like a quick and easy weekday recipe – with taste!


1/4 cup brown sugar, packed

1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce

2 tspns sesame oil

1/2 tsp crushed red-pepper flakes, or more to taste

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1 tbspn vegetable oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 lb ground beef

2 green onions, thinly sliced

1/4 tsp sesame seeds


1. In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes and ginger.

2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add ground beef and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; drain excess fat.

3. Stir in soy sauce mixture and green onions until well combined, allowing to simmer until heated through, about 2 minutes.

4. Serve on rice, garnished with green onion and sesame seeds, if desired.


This was pretty good! First of all, it wasn’t a total tank with the kids. The youngest ate a bit and claimed “yum” (then ate a hot dog). But, I think I could convince both to eat it again, which is always a miracle at our house. Good taste and I’d bet this sauce would be great in a stir fry as well…next time!
