This is one of my favorite recipes! It’s inexpensive, super quick and easy to make, and delicious! This is a recipe I’ve passed along to my family and a few friends and have always heard great things about the meal. This isn’t your typical Korean beef recipe since I use ground beef instead of flank steak to make it less expensive, nevertheless this dish is super flavorful and so easy to make.
1 pound lean ground beef
1/4 cup brown sugar (add more if you like it sweeter)
1/4 cup soy sauce (I use low sodium)
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, minced (can substitute 2 – 3 teaspoons minced garlic flakes)
1/2 – 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (to desired spiciness – I usually add more because I like mine pretty spicy)
salt and pepper to taste
1 bunch green onions, diced (optional)
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and brown ground beef with the garlic in the sesame oil. Drain the fat and add the brown sugar, soy sauce, salt and paper, and red pepper flakes. Stir until all the ingredients are mixed well and then let it simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors.
Serve over steamed rice and top with green onions.
