Korean Beef and Rice Bowls with Chia Seeds and Swiss Chard


1 lb ground beef

1/2 red onion diced very fine

2 tsp minced garlic

1tbsp vegetable oil

1/4 cup soy sauce (I use gluten free) 

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

2 tsp sesame seed oil

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp ground ginger

chopped lettuce, chopped red peppers, withered Swiss chard 

2 cups of cooked rice 

In a skillet heat the oil and add in the onion, garlic. Then add in the beef and break into tiny bits. In a small bowl whisk together soy sauce, sugar, oil, and all the spices pour then into the cooked beef. Simmer for 5 mins. 

In a bowl place a spoonful of rice then a spoonful of meat then add a handful of lettuce, swiss chard and sprinkle chia seeds to your liking and finish by adding a bunch of red bell peppers for crunch and color. If you desire you can add more soy sauce or ponzu to taste.
