Cook rice in water as directed on package.
Meanwhile, in 12-inch skillet, cook beef, onion, garlic and gingerroot over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain if desired.
Stir remaining ingredients except cilantro into beef mixture. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer uncovered 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened.
Serve beef mixture over rice. Garnish with cilantro.
