Just because this beef is cheap and easy, doesn’t mean the taste is sub par. You’ll think you’re at your favorite Korean BBQ joint. The brown sugar brings sweetness and the red pepper flakes add some heat. Trust me, the flavor can’t be beat. So good, I even found myself sneaking cold spoonfuls from the fridge. No shame.

Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, and ginger.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and brown, crumbling as it cooks. About 3-5 minutes. Drain off the excess fat and return the skillet to the stove. Add the garlic and saute for a minute or two.
  3. Add the sauce and green onions to the ground beef. Stir to combine and allow to simmer over medium about 2-3 minutes so the sauce thickens. Finally, sprinkle with sesame seeds. And serve with cooked rice and steamed vegetables (if using). Enjoy!
