Ground Beef Fried Rice



1 pound of ground beef or pork

5 -6 large garlic cloves, chopped

1⁄4 teaspoon ginger powder or minced fresh ginger

2 tablespoons oil (not olive oil)

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.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in the same skillet over medium-high eat until hot.

Add in bell pepper and pea pods or broccoli, and cook for 3 minutes or until bell pepper is crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.

Return the cooked ground beef back to the skillet; toss to combine and heat though, then stir in the chopped green onions.
