Sesame Beef Bowl

For today’s recipe I came across a recipe that looked fairly simple and fast but still appealing to us. I made some changes and it was so easy and delicious!

It was one of those dishes where I wished I had made more. Next time. If you just do a little prep work, like cooking the carrots while you prep the ingredients for the beef, you can have this ready in less time than it takes to cook the rice!

Directions for Sesame Beef Bowl

Adapted from How Sweet Eats

  • 2 Tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • Vegetable oil
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 3-4 carrots, chopped and cooked (boiled or steamed)
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in the barest amount of water to make a slurry
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Heat a small skillet over medium-low heat and toast the sesame seeds, stirring occasionally until lightly toasted. Remove from the heat when done and set aside. Meanwhile, brown the ground beef with a bit of oil in a large skillet. Break apart the beef with a wooden spoon as it cooks.

Once it browns, stir in the sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil. garlic, ginger, and the whites of the green onions.

On low heat, cook for about 5 minutes then add the carrots.

Add the cornstarch slurry along with the green parts of the green onions and salt and pepper (to taste). Serve with the sesame seeds on top.
