    For the Sour Cream Sauce
  • 1/2 Sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha
  • 3 Water
  • For the Teriyaki Sauce
  • 1/2 Water
  • 1/3 Soy sauce
  • 1 Rice wine vinegar
  • 1/3 Brown sugar
  • 1 Corn Starch
  • 2 Sesame oil
  • For the Ground Beef Mixture
  • 1 pound Medium ground beef (You can use lean if you wish.)
  • 3 Garlic, chopped
  • 1 Ginger, chopped
  • 3 Green onions, chopped diagonally and dived in half (Use the whitest for frying and the greens for garnish. You can also use scallions for frying.)
  • 3 Broccoli
  • 1 1/2 Grated carrots
  • 1 Ground black pepper
  • 1 Sesame seed for garnish
  1. In two small bowls, mix together the ingredients for the sour cream sauce and teriyaki sauce. Set them aside. 

  2. Add some oil to a pan over medium high heat. Place the beef in. Stir and fry until it is browned and cooked through. Move the beef to one side of the pan and add the garlic, ginger, and onion to the other side. Stir and saute until fragrant. Stir and mix everything together.

  3. Add in the broccoli and carrots. Toss and fry until the broccoli begins to turn bright green. This should take 3 or 4 minutes. Pour the sauce over and toss once again. Continue to toss for 3 minutes or so. Turn off the heat and plate over rice. Drizzle the sour cream sauce over and garnish with the remaining onions and sesame seeds.
