This is a quick, easy and very tasty meal. I bet little kids will like it too.
Add 1 T. of sesame oil to a pan. Add 1 pound of ground beef and 3 minced garlic cloves. Cook until browned and drain off any grease.
Add 1 diced onion and 1 can of diced water chestnuts.
Sprinkle in 1 tsp. of red pepper flakes. Add more if you want it to be spicy.
Mix in 1/4 C. of brown sugar, 1/4 C. of soy sauce, 1 T. grated fresh ginger, 1 tsp. fish sauce and 1 T. rice wine vinegar. Cook at a simmer for about 15 minutes.
Serve it over rice and sprinkle it with sliced green onions. I added a layer of sliced head lettuce under the meat but you can't really see it in this pic. You could also sprinkle this with toasted sesame seeds but I didn't think of that until I was writing this post.
