| | Korean Ground Beef, Quick and Tasty AF

Prep: 5 min/ Cook: 15 min

Don’t have a lot of time but need to get in your protein? No worries! This recipe takes minimal prep and goes from the pan to your mouth in around 20 minutes. I know ground beef is a common sight in most Power Athlete refrigerators; I also know ground beef can get boring very, very quickly. Keeping things fresh in the kitchen with some of these traditional staples will help keep you on track with your nutrition and training goals, and empowering your performance.

**If you have food prepped and have unseasoned ground beef in the refrigerator, this is a quick sauce to stir together and add in when you are reheating the beef.

2 pounds ground beef

2 TBS garlic cloves, minced

1/4 cup coconut sugar

1/4 cup coconut aminos

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Salt and pepper to taste

Sesame seeds for garnish

Serves well on rice and with any vegetables you like!


  1. In a pan on medium heat cook the ground beef and garlic. I used 93/7 lean ground beef, and also pre minced garlic from a jar because time is money!
  2. In a small bowl mix together coconut sugar, coconut aminos, ginger, and red pepper flakes.
  3. If you are planning on enjoying the beef with rice or veggies, this is the time to get those started.
  4. Once the meat has cooked, add in the sauce and let simmer for another 5 more minutes.
  5. Serve in a bowl over rice and veggies and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
