Super Fast & Easy Korean Ground Beef with Rice

This tasty recipe (found on BarefeetInTheKitchen(dot)com)couldn't be much easier. In fact, the hardest part was finding chili paste!

Finally tracked it down at our local SuperTarget. AND got a Cartwheel deal on it too... There are chili paste substitutes if you absolutely can't find it, but especially when trying a recipe for the first time, we try to stick pretty close to the original.

We hope you enjoy this dish as much as we did. It's sweet and spicy and filling. Can't wait to eat the leftovers!

1 lb. ground beef
1 tsp sesame oil
1-2 tsp minced garlic
1 TBS minced ginger
1/4 C brown sugar
2 tsp cornstarch
2 tsp chili paste
1/3 C soy sauce
1 C frozen peas
scallions (for garnish)

1. Saute the beef in the oil until browned and crumbly. Drain excess liquid.
2. Add garlic and ginger and stir over heat for 2 minutes or so. Smells SO good!
3. Whisk sugar, cornstarch, chili paste and soy sauce in a small bowl until blended. Add to beef and simmer until sauce has thickened (3 minutes, give or take).
4. Add peas and stir until peas are heated.
5. Serve over cooked rice (we used brown because it's healthier). Garnish with chopped scallions.
