“Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.
Oh Pinterest, you've done it again. So many recipes, so little time. I did finally get around to trying out a new one though. It's an easy, low-cost recipe that you can throw together on a busy night and it's adaptable to any taste. Like it hot? Add more crushed red pepper. Want it a little less sweet? Use less brown sugar. Serve it with white rice, jasmine rice, coconut rice, or even Asian noodles - it's your choice! What could be better?
Sweet & Spicy Asian Beef with Rice
Recipe adapted from here.
1 lb. lean ground beef
heaping 1/3 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. low-sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp. sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
3/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
salt/pepper to taste
1 bunch fresh green onion, diced green portion only
Heat large skillet over medium heat; add 2 tbsp. sesame oil and brown ground beef and minced garlic.
While the beef is browning mix together the brown sugar, soy sauce, ground ginger, and crushed red pepper in a medium sized bowl.
Remove from heat temporarily and drain any remaining grease. Return to medium heat and add sauce mixture. Simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors. Add salt/pepper to taste.
Serve over rice or Asian noodle of your choice, and top generously with diced green onion.
