  • 1 cup uncooked jasmine rice
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce
  • ΒΌ teaspoon freshly ground ginger
  • 4 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot freshly grated
  • 1 zucchini squash spiralized
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons sesame seeds for topping


  • Cook the rice according to the package directions. You most likely will need 1 1/2 cups water along with a tablespoon of butter or olive oil. While the rice is cook, make the beef.
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the ground beef. Break it apart with a wooden spoon until it's in small pieces and brown it until the fat is rendered and cooked out. Once browned, stir in the sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, chili garlic sauce and ginger. Reduce the heat to low and toss well, cooking for 5 minutes. Stir in the green onions. Spiralize a zucchini squash and quickly toss it in with the beef, just to cook it for a minute or two. I wouldn't cook much longer - we don't want it to be mushy!
  • Spoon the rice in bowls and top with the beef and zoodles. Grate a bit of carrot on top. Sprinkle on the sesame seeds. Serve!
