Korean ground beef with rice

Everyday I would take one of my meat from the freezer before I go to work. So I have a whole day to think about what and how to turn this frozen meat into dinner in a flash.

And today what I pulled out was 1 lbs ground beef. Then my brain started thinking what do I have in the fridge, what starch I have. I have made this before but I didn’t use any vegetable at that time. I am trying to have vegetable in every meal we have. So I thought I add some carrots and spinach to this dish. Another inexpensive meal under $10 for 3. When I cook rice, I always do more than we need. That way I can make fried rice the next day.

This is a cool simple dish. Flavorful. I like it a little spicy, so I add slices of Thai birds eye chili. If your whole family like a little kick, you can add some into the dish or use red pepper flakes. I am using ground beef to make it faster, however if you go to your asian store they usually have the thinly slice beef. That’d be very good.

I am also thinking maybe use the sauce mixture to marinade chicken or maybe salmon? ¬†Maybe next time…

Here is what i do:

Korean Ground Beef with rice.

Steamed rice..you can use IP or rice cooker. I am using my rice cooker this time.

1 carrot, julienne
2 cups fresh spinach

Mix well the sauce:
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1″ fresh ginger, grated
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 lbs ground beef
4 cloves crushed garlic

Cook the ground beef until it changed color. Add the sauce, mix well. Add carrots. Turn IP off. Closed the lid, manual 3 minutes, QR. turn off, switch back to sautee cook until the sauce reduced but not completely dry..then throw in the spinach, cook for 1 minute.

Serve the meet over rice, and topped with fry egg and garnish with green onion.
