This recipe is a family favorite! I double the recipe because its that good and leftovers make a quick yummy snack!

The ground beef takes only minutes to brown but you still get that delicious Korean flavor in this meal.  The brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and ginger combination is the best.

It helps take the flavor to next level with the simple kitchen ingredients.  The best part is that because we love Asian flavors so much I always have these ingredients on hand.  All I have to do is buy a pound of ground beef each week.

You guys are going to love this meal just as much as we do!  It is so delicious when served over rice and I even like to add some veggies to my bowl to make it a well rounded meal.

Sprinkle with some sesame seeds and freshly chopped green onions and you have about the easiest meal that you will ever make!  You will make this again and again!
