3/4 cup soy sauce
6 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
4 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 pound ground turkey, beef, or pork
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 large eggs
2 cups cooked rice
Assorted vegetables (shredded carrot, canned baby corn, spinach, bean sprouts, red onion…), steamed or raw
Toasted sesame seeds

1 Mix together the first three ingredients; set aside.

2 In a pan, brown the meat in half the vegetable oil, about 5 minutes. Add half the soy-sauce mixture and continue cooking until the liquid is absorbed, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and cover.

3 In another pan, fry the eggs in the remaining vegetable oil, 4 to 5 minutes.

4 Divide the rice among 4 bowls. Arrange some vegetables and meat and an egg in each. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds, then drizzle the remaining soy-sauce mixture over the top.

NOTE: I used ground pork, steamed spinach and shredded carrot. I know it's not 100% traditional, but it was an easy quick meal that both kids ate.
