2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons mirin

How to make ground beef bulgogi
Step 1: In a large mixing bowl, place the beef, garlic, onion, soy sauce, mirin, sugar, plum extract, and black pepper. Mix well until combined. Marinate the beef for about 30 minutes. This step is optional as we are using ground beef.
Step 2: Drizzle cooking oil in a hot wok or large skillet over high heat. Swirl the oil to coat the bottom of the skillet. Then, add the ground beef mixture and stir fry, breaking the meat into small chunks. Continue to cook for about 8 to 10 minutes until the moisture has evaporated and the meat is completely cooked, stirring often.
Step 3: Toss in the chopped green onions once you hear the sizzling sound, and the moisture from the beef is gone. Add the sesame seeds and oil, and stir well.
Step 4: Remove from the heat when done and serve the ground beef bulgogi right away over warm cooked rice, cauliflower rice, quinoa, or your preferred starch. If desired, garnish the bulgogi with sesame seeds and green onions. Enjoy!
