  • Cook ground beef and white part of green onions in large skillet on medium-high heat until beef is no longer pink, stirring occasionally. Drain fat.

  • Stir in remaining ingredients except sesame seed. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 15 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.

  • Sprinkle with remaining green onions and sesame seed. Serve over cooked jasmine rice or noodles, if desired.

Cooking tip

• For richer, more authentic Korean flavor, add 2 tablespoons Korean pepper paste (Gochujang). Decrease soy sauce and rice vinegar to 1 tablespoon each and omit garlic powder and ground red pepper.
• Korean pepper paste or Gochujang is a fermented chile and bean paste. It is used flavor stews, soups and marinades, and as a condiment at the table. It is available in Asian markets and online specialty stores.

Serving Suggestion: Serve chili over hot dogs. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seed.
