  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 5 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • ½ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 6 stalks green onions chopped, divided
  • 4 cups hot cooked brown rice
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds


  1. Heat up a big skillet on medium-high heat. Cook the beef in the skillet, crumbling it into smaller pieces and stirring it around until it's browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain out any excess grease.

  2. Add the garlic, ginger, and sesame oil to the skillet and stir until they become fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir in the soy sauce, brown sugar, and red pepper. Keep cooking until some of the sauce absorbs into the beef, about 7 minutes. Add 1/2 of the chopped green onions.

  3. Serve the prepped beef over the rice and garnish with the sesame seeds and leftover green onions.
