I admit that Summer Meals around here sometimes consist of some more hastily thrown together meals especially during hot weather. Once Fall comes and the cooler temperatures with it, I get back into making some of our favourite meals that can be cooked indoors instead of on the grill. Given that Fall is also the start of school and activities we tend to also look for quick, nutritious meals. This one fits the bill and is loved by us all. It is also easily doubled for when we have company for dinner. I like to serve it with steamed carrots too! I originally found this recipe over at Lizzie Writes and adapted the spices used for our taste buds.
1/2 cup brown sugar (1/4 cup if you don't want it as sweet)
1/4 cup soy sauce (we use gluten free or Bragg's seasoning)
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced (I use just a bit of dried ginger powder instead)
salt and pepper
1 bunch green onions, diced
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and brown hamburger with garlic in the sesame oil. Drain most of the fat and add brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, salt and pepper.. Simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavours. Serve over steamed rice and top with green onions.
