Korean Ground Beef Stir Fry is incredibly easy to make and has the best flavor! This is a recipe that my kids beg me to make every single week!

  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 zucchini sliced
  • 1/2 cup sugar snap peas
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 8 ounce mushrooms sliced
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
