Korean beef is a standard dish served in most Chinese restaurants made with flank steak. Since having prepared it with ground beef, I now prefer it this way at home. This is a quick meal, full of flavor, that is easy to double. Enjoy!
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 – 2 C. frozen broccoli pieces (optional)
1/4 – 1/2 C. brown sugar
1/4 C. soy sauce
1/2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1/2 – 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
dash of pepper
1 to 2 green onions, diced
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and brown ground beef with garlic in the sesame oil. Drain any fat that is left. Add broccoli, brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, red pepper flakes and pepper. Simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors. Serve over rice and top with green onions.
