I read that some others had found this to be bland so I upped the ginger, garlic, soy sauce, and sesame oil, and added an onion and some celery and still found it bland. So I added 1/3 Cup hoisin sauce and it was awesome. I will be making this again and again.

Wow! I ate so much of this that I got a stomach ache. My husband also got seconds. It was very quick and easy to make. My deviations: I didn't have ginger, broccoli or green onions, so I used turmeric, frozen peas and white onions. I also had an open jar of expensive, organic tomato sauce in the fridge that I didn't want to have to throw out, so I cooked the ground beef in it. I did not drain the fat off the beef. Next time I will try it with hoisin sauce, if I can find some that is gluten free.

I found this recipe while looking for something different to do with ground beef and decided to give it a try. Loved it!! It's a great way to use leftover rice. Will definitely make this again.

This was a good, economical meal, and it made quite a bit for us to have leftover. Will definitely make again. Thanks, Kitten!

This recipe was good and can be used as a base, but over all I found it a little bland. I used fresh ginger and added mushrooms. I will definitely try this again and play around with spices, maybe add curry powder or chili paste.

This was a nice break from chicken fried rice, but I thought the recipe was a bit bland. I ended up adding a lot of cajun seasoning to give it flavor. But overall, it was a nice recipe.

Great week-night dinner. Fast, easy and delicious. My DS and DH couldn't eat this fast enough! I used 1/2 ground beef and 1/2 ground pork. I also used fresh brocolli because I had it on hand. I made a large quantity of white rice, scooped out 3 cups, put it on a plate and placed in refridgerator. It didn't take long for the rice to get cold because I spread it out on the plate. The only thing I changed while preparing this was I omitted the green onions, my DS isn't fond of them. Thanks for sharing this; a keeper in my house.

I really liked this recipe. It's perfect to make on a weekday with leftover rice. I'm always looking for different ways to use ground beef.

This is a keeper! We actually had it two days in a row because the husband liked it so much. i used snow peas instead of red bell pepper. i also broke two of the rules and used olive oil and hot cooked rice. It turned out wonderfully. Thanks for the great recipe, Kittencal!

This was excellent! Very easy to put together, economical, and what a clever idea to use ground beef! I used veggie beef and both husband and I went for seconds and enjoyed the leftovers the next day for lunch. I used broccoli and red pepper but think any veggie would work well depending on your preference. Another keeper Kittencal - thank you!
