Korean Beef

IMG_2188

This was a real winner with the family.  Everyone liked it and it was quick to get on the table, which gives it even more appeal for the “mom” in me.

1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
1/2 – 1 teaspoon crushed red peppers (I used 1/2 teaspoon and it was hot enough for us Texans!)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 bunch green onions, diced
1 egg for each serving (optional)

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and brown hamburger with garlic in the sesame oil. Drain most of the fat and add brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, salt, pepper and crushed red peppers. Simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors. Serve over steamed rice and top with green onions. Optional: Hubby wanted his meat cooked with an egg so I cracked an egg into the meat mixture and stirred it until it was cooked. Also could poach an egg and put it on top. I think next time I will try poaching eggs.
