  • Combine brown sugar, soy sauce, water, Asian pear, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, and black pepper in a food processor. Blend until combined but still slightly chunky. Pour mixture into the skillet with the beef and cook over medium heat until most of the liquid evaporates, 7 to 9 minutes.

  • Place 1/4 the cooked brown rice in the bottom of an individual serving bowl. Top with a portion of beef mixture, lettuce, cucumber, red bell pepper, and sesame seeds. Repeat with remaining rice, beef, and toppings.

This is a very good recipe. We use jasmine rice instead of brown but that's just our taste preference. We increase it to 12 servings as my family of 6 always goes back for a second bowl. The veggies we rotate as we use what's in our garden at the time. But thank you for a very delicious recipe. Read More
