Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine ground beef, carrots, and bell pepper in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat; saute for 4 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add zucchini and continue to cook until ground beef is fully cooked through and vegetables are crisp-tender (to your preferred "doneness"), about 5 more minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine soy sauce, 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons water, sugar, brown sugar, vinegar, cornstarch, onion powder, ginger, and garlic powder in a small bowl for the sauce. Whisk until well blended.

  • When the meat and veggies are cooked, whisk sauce once more and pour into the skillet. Use a spatula to mix and get everything off the sides and bottom.

  • Turn the heat up until sauce begins to bubble, stirring occasionally until mixture becomes thickened and glossy. Turn heat off. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Cook's Note:

I used red bell pepper, carrots, and zucchini, but you can certainly change up the veggies to use what you have on hand.
