Ingredients

Meat mixture:

  • 1/4 c sesame oil
  • 1.3 pounds organic ground beef
  • 1/8 cup coconut aminos or soy sauce if using soy sauce, add 2 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp rice wine or mirin
  • 2 Tbsp minced garlic OR 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp ginger paste or 1 tsp ground ginger
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Apricot Sweet Chili Sauce:

Suggested Toppings:

  • Shredded carrot
  • 3-4 cup cooked brown or white rice
  • 1 cup enoki mushrooms or other mushrooms
  • 1/8 cup coconut aminos or soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • Sliced cucumber tossed in 3 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • Kimchi
  • Sesame seeds
  • Scallions to garnish

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, heat the sesame oil. When oil is hot, add in ginger paste, and stir for 1 minute before adding in the ground beef. On medium high heat, cook beef until browned, then add in the coconut aminos, garlic powder, rice wine/mirin, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir until meat is fully cooked and set aside.
  • If you are adding mushrooms to your bowl (highly recommended), heat sesame oil on medium high heat. When oil is hot, add in mushrooms and stir gently for 4 minutes with salt and pepper to taste. Next add in coconut aminos, reduce heat to medium, and stir for 2-3 more minutes. Remove from heat and add to bowl of rice while mushrooms are still warm—along with cucumber, beef, carrots, sweet chili sauce, and kimchi.
  • Top with sesame seeds and green onion. Enjoy!
  • This recipe can also be made as a salad, with fresh or sautéed greens.
