Korean “Beef”

Korean Meat ~ Lifeofjoy.meThis recipe is one VERY simple quick meal to make, unless you add egg rolls to it, which will take a bit longer to make. ;) If your meat is thawed, it can be done in just a few minutes. How long it takes depends on how quickly you can brown meat and make rice.

Brown your ground meat in the sesame oil; I use ground turkey. I sprinkle garlic powder, salt, and pepper over the meat as it browns.

Meanwhile combine the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl: brown sugar, soy sauce, ground ginger, and crushed red peppers.

When meat is browned, drain any fat and add the sauce. Simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors.

Serve over rice and top with chopped green onions. Normally I’m not a fan of green onions, but I did give it a try on this and found it really added to the flavor.
