Kittencal's Ground Beef Fried Rice

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

A long time family favorite! --- you can substitute the broccoli florets for one 6-ounce package frozen pea pods if desired --- make certain the the cooked ground beef is very well browned and well drained, also make certain to use only *cold* cooked rice, cooking time does not include cooking the rice --- you will love this! :)

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.

  1. In a wok or a large skillet brown the ground beef with garlic and ginger over medium heat (about 10 minutes) breaking up into small pieces; drain the fat, then transfer to a bowl.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in the same skillet over medium-high eat until hot.
  3. Add in bell pepper and pea pods; cook for 3 minutes or until bell pepper is crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.
  4. Stir in the cold cooked rice, soy sauce and sesame oil.
  5. Return the cooked ground beef back to the skillet; toss to combine and heat though, then stir in the chopped green onions.
  6. Season with salt and pepper and more soy sauce if desired.
