This is a spin on sloppy joe and it was a huge hit in our house. I really didn’t know what to serve it with so we ate it as a taco one night and then on a baked potato the next. It’s a great leftover option to switch it up a little.
10-Minute Beef Teriyaki Skillet
(Adapted from The Seasoned Mom)
1 lb. extra lean ground beef I used 96% lean
1 cup finely diced onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger or about ¼ teaspoon dried ground ginger
¾ cup thick teriyaki sauce such as Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce
Optional Garnish: sliced green onion toasted sesame seeds
For Serving: rice tortillas, or lettuce wraps
In a large skillet preheat 1 teaspoon sesame oil over medium-high heat for about 1 minute. The sesame oil adds great flavor to the dish, but if you don’t have any you can substitute with canola or vegetable oil.
Add beef, onion, garlic and ginger to the skillet.
Cook, breaking up the meat as you stir, until the beef is no longer pink and the onion is tender (about 5-7 minutes). Drain, and return meat to skillet.
Stir teriyaki sauce into the beef mixture.
Bring to a low simmer and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes, just until sauce thickens slightly.
Serve over rice, in tortillas, or in lettuce wraps.
