  • Make the instant rice according to directions on box.
  • While the veggies and rice are cooking, start cooking the meat. Heat a large pan or wok on high heat. Once totally heated, add the remaining 2 Tablespoons sesame oil and the beef, with its sauce. Cook beef for 3-5 minutess on each side.
  • Turn heat down to low and stir in the veggie mix. Cook all together for a minute or so. Remove from heat.
