Cheap Korean Beef

This recipe is from Lizzy over at Lizzy WritesFollow the recipe here (with my additions and improvements in red).
Cheap Korean Beef - Serves 6
1 lb lean ground beef
1/4 - 1/2 cup brown sugar (I like it sweet so I usually do closer to 1/2) (Lynn here - I like things less sweet, so I went with 1/4 cup and it was just perfect!)
1/4 cup soy sauce (I use low-sodium)
1 Tbsp sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1/2 - 1 tsp crushed red peppers (I hate to chew on a red pepper flakes. So I went with 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper. Spicy throughout, yet no big pepper chunks lurking about. If your family is not spice-friendly, don't use any or taste as you go.)
salt and pepper
1 bunch green onions, diced 
1) Heat a large skillet over medium heat and brown hamburger with garlic in the sesame oil.
2) Drain most of the fat and add brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, salt and pepper and red peppers. 
3) Simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors. Serve over steamed rice and top with green onions.

Thoughts: I LOVE THIS RECIPE!!! This was quick and really flavorful. I don't usually gravitate towards quick and easy, but this really was quick, easy and super yummy. Everyone at the table loved it and wanted it added to our home cooking menu choices. For these reasons, I give this recipe 5 easy pins!
