  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (add more to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger (grated)
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic (minced (I like to use a garlic press))
  • 1 pound ground beef or bison
  • 2 green onion (sliced)
  • sesame seeds (for garnish)


  • Prepare rice per the instructions on the package.
  • Using a small bowl, mix together the first six ingredients: soy sauce, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, sesame oil, fresh ginger, and fresh garlic.
  • Cook the ground beef over medium high for about 7-10 minutes until browned.

Some great things to serve with it are sliced fresh cucumbers or carrots, and kimchi!
