In a large skillet, saute onions in olive oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic, ginger, coriander, cumin, and turmeric. Season with salt and pepper; cook until fragrant. Add ground beef; cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until well browned. Drain excess fat, reserving a tablespoon in pan to keep meat moist. Stir in sambal oelek. Serve warm or at room temperature.
