Korean Ground Beef

It’s the time of the year that were rich in ground beef. This doesn’t happen all the time and there are many times of the year that I am craving an ERF burger or great taco and we are totally out of ground beef. But alas now is the time. I have tons ground beef. So much in fact that I was brainstorming new ways to use it and I found this one.

Now as you know I have a ton of jobs and a ton of kids so easy weeknight dinners are the only kind that I cook.

This fit the bill exactly.

Korean Ground Beef

What you need:

1 lb ERF Grass Fed Ground beef

1 Tbs Sesame Oil

3-5 cloves Garlic minced

1 tsp fresh ginger

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 tsp Sriracha


1/2 tsp Sweet Asian Chili Sauce

2 green onion


Brown ground beef in large pan with oil, garlic and ginger. Sesame oil is a staple here and can help jazz up so many different asian dishes. Buy some keep it in your pantry. You’ll thank yourself when your in a pinch.

You can drain the fat off if this is something you prefer. I have gotten out of the habit of doing that especially now that we eat only grass fed beef. Fat is fuel and this is some of the best fat you can get. Additionally, our livestock are all fed Excel Supplements, a wonderful nutritional supplement rich in vitamin E and omega 3 fatty acids.

Add brown sugar, soy sauce and Sriracha and sweet chili sauce if you have it. Cook for a bit longer until the some of liquid absorbs back into the meat. Top with the green onions. These are nice but totally not mandatory.

I served this over sautéed broccoli, peppers and mushrooms. You could also serve over rice or noodles. The original recipe gave a great option of a wilted Napa salad. I didn’t have the ingredients for that but will try next time.
