Brown the ground beef in a skillet. Because I use grass-fed beef, I don't end up with enough fat to drain off, but if you have a lot, feel free to scoop it out.
Once browned, add in the garlic and ginger. Let it saute with the beef for about three minutes.
Stir in the whole cane sugar (rapadura), soy sauce, and optional pepper flakes. Gently simmer for ten minutes.
Serve atop a bed of delicious basmati or jasmine rice. Garnish with minced scallions or chives.
