  Dark brown sugar 1 Tablespoon
  Minced garlic 1 Tablespoon
  Green onion 1 Tablespoon, chopped finely
  Sesame oil 1 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1⁄8 Teaspoon
Directions

MAKING
1. Take a bowl and combine the beef with soy sauce, brown sugar, minced garlic, green onions, sesame oil, black pepper and mix well. Keep it aside to marinate while we prepare the other ingredients.
2. In a heated pan brown the marinated beef. Add the vegetables and fry for about 5 minutes on medium high heat. You can add a little bit of cooking oil in this step if needed.
3. Take a big bowl and add 2 1/2 cups of cooked rice in it. Then add the beef and vegetable mixture and mix them gently. For extra flavor add some seasoning by sprinkling salt, sesame seeds and sesame oil.

FINALIZING
4. Make firm balls of rice with a spoonful of rice. Touch your palms with a little bit of water or oil while working on the rice balls.
5. You can also cover the rice balls with dried seaweed, but in this case you must reduce the amount of salt added as the dried seaweed is salty.

SERVING
6. Serve with soy bean paste soup and kimchi.
