1/4 cup soy sauce

2 tsp cornstarch

1/2 tbsp brown sugar, packed

1/2 tsp red chili flakes, or to taste

2 tbsp sesame oil 

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated

15oz / 450g ground turkey

6 tbsp chives, chopped

1 – In a small bowl combine soy sauce, cornstarch, brown sugar, and chili flakes. Mix until cornstarch is dissolved, set aside.

2 – Drizzle a large skillet with sesame oil, stir in garlic and ginger and wait until fragrant. Add ground turkey and mix in order to break it into small chunks. Fry until ground turkey loses its raw red color.
