1/2 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes, or more to taste

1/4 teaspoon ginger powder

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

Step 1.  In a small bowl, whisk together SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend, soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes and ginger.

Step 2.  Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Step 3.  Add ground beef and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; drain excess fat.
