Quick Korean Beef

Sunday night I am hanging out on twitter when someone posted a link to what they were making for dinner.  Of course I check it out and get linked to this recipe.
Score!  I now found my dinner plan for Monday night.

Monday night is soccer night, which means, fast quick meals that not only can be made super-fast, but also ones the kids like and we don’t spend an hour forcing helping them to eat.

This meal was a win for everyone in the family, make it as spicy as you like but mine was quite toned down since I wanted the kids to eat it as well.

Quick Korean Beef

1 lb lean ground beef
1 tablespoon sesame oil
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup brown sugar
¼ cup soy sauce
½ - 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
½ - 1 teaspoon crushed red chili peppers
1 bunch green onions

Heat a large skillet over medium heat; add ground beef and sesame oil.  Cook until almost finished browning and then add the minced garlic.  Finish cooking, and strain to remove excess oil.
Return back to heat; add brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger and chili peppers.
Cook for a few minutes to help the flavours blend.
Remove from heat, and serve with rice, topping with green onions and toasted sesame seeds if desired.

I julienned some carrots and cucumber to serve with it, if you have pickled carrots, these would be even better.

Since I take pictures of my meal, Little Girl wanted to take on of hers.  Here is her meal, she has already eaten her cucumber - can you tell it is a favourite of hers.
