  • 1 cup rice uncooked
  • 1 lb. ground beef lean
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar packed
  • 1 teaspoon ginger ground
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup soy sauce low sodium
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • Garnish
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds


1.Cook the rice according to package instructions. I usually use Basmati rice and I add 2 1/2 cups of water for 1 cup of rice and about 1 tbsp of coconut oil.
2.In a large skillet cook the ground beef first for about 3 minutes, breaking it into crumbles, over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and cook for another 5 minutes until the beef starts to brown and no longer pink.
3.In a small bowl whisk together the sauce ingredients and pour over the beef. Let it simmer for another 1 minute while stirring, then remove from heat.
4.Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.
5.Serve hot over cooked rice.
