This dish was really tasty, however I did make some slight changes after reading feedback from others. I halved the brown sugar and added a splash of lime juice and sweet chili sauce.

Will make this again, so easy and delicious!
Great recipe, and easy to make. I added steamed broccoli and tossed in just before serving.
a little sweet but my son loved it, he asked me to make it more often .

Not in love with adding brown sugar; too sweet. I did add a tablespoon of rice vinegar and some red pepper and put it on top of cauliflower rice

turned out great! be careful with the brown sugar, if you're not careful, it can be too sweet.

I enjoy this recipe and have added it to the dinner rotation. The recipe is excellent as is, but I always double the sauce because the beef can get a little dry. Next time I make this again, I’ll add a little bit of chicken broth to reduce the dryness.

Delicious! Only wish I had made double. Complete hit with the entire family.

First of all I am trying to figure out why any of you think this is like WOW delicious. I read the reviews and used only 1/4 cup brown sugar so not to sweet. I added broccoli too. More red pepper flakes. This is seriously pretty tasteless Edible that is about it. Going to try and Dr it up with my cooking experience. No no and what a waste of good Grass fed and finished ground beef

Ok. I used the sesame seed oil in the sauce & stirred it all together first. Also sprinkled sesame seeds on top with the green onions & served with brown rice.
My kids just LOVE this quick and easy meal!!!

It turned out great for a family of 4 that eat large portions you need 2lbs of ground beef which is 12 servings on the app. Even the youngest of the family loved it and the red pepper flakes didn’t give it too much heat

Good recipe. Really easy to make and fast. But I felt like it needs more sweet and spicy in it.

Came out great! I was short on scallions and soy sauce which sapped a lot of the flavor from it. But I made up for it with a Korean BBQ sauce and browned the beef in sesame oil. Definitely will try again with more soy sauce.

Too, too sweet. Use half or less the amount called for!
