Ingredients You'll Need

1 oz dried shiitake mushrooms (optional)
1 lb lean ground beef
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 tsp. Chinese five spice powder
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 tbsp. reduced-sodium or lite soy sauce

1. Pour hot water over the dried mushrooms (if using); let stand for 20 minutes. Drain. Remove and discard the stems; chop the caps coarsely.

2. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan set over medium-high heat. Cook the ground beef, onion, garlic, soy sauce, five spice powder, salt and pepper, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until browned.

3. Add the rehydrated and fresh mushrooms to the pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until tender.

4. Stir the pureed tomatoes, tomato paste, vinegar and sugar into the beef mixture. Bring the sauce to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in the ginger with the sauce and remove from heat.
