Serves 4-6 as Entrée
1 package 90/10 Chatel Farms Ground Beef
1 Tblsp. Canola or Grapeseed Oil
3-4 cloves Garlic, crushed
1 Tblsp. Fresh Ginger, minced

Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and add the garlic and ginger. Saute the garlic and ginger while constantly moving the pan until the garlic is lightly browned. Add the beef and chile peppers then sauté for 2-3 minutes until the beef begins to brown. Add the broccoli and mushrooms, give the pan a quick toss and deglaze the pan with either rice wine (sake) or white wine. Add the soy sauce and honey then simmer until the beef is cooked and a sauce consistency is formed, about 2-3 minutes. Adjust the seasonings with salt and pepper. Serve over white rice as a light summer entrée.
