It's "What's for dinner?!"

Sesame Beef Stir Fry (Eating For Life, Bill Phillips)

Lean ground beef, brown rice, broccoli and napa cabbage stir-fried in sesame-soy sauce! DELISH!

2 portions brown rice (about ½ cup uncooked)
2 portions lean ground beef (about ½ lb)
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 green onions, sliced
1 cup broccoli slaw (found near bagged salads in produce department)
1 cup napa cabbage, shredded
1 tbsp lite soy sauce

Crushed red pepper flakes, to taste
Prepare brown rice according to package instructions.

While the rice is cooking, in a medium skillet or wok, brown the ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Remove the beef from the skillet, drain and set aside.

Heat sesame oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and green onions; stir fry for 2 minutes. Add the broccoli slaw and cabbage; stir fry for 2 minutes. Add rice and soy sauce; stir fry for 2 more minutes.

Return the cooked ground beef to the skillet with the rice and vegetable mixture and season with red pepper flakes, to taste. Stir until ingredients are well combined and heated through, about 2 minutes.

Divide into 2 portions, serve and enjoy.

Eating for Life is an EXCELLENT book and I have enjoyed cooking from it in times-past. Now that hubby and I are eating right for LIFE, it seems approipriate start cooking from it again. I will post pictures tonight of this dish as well as what we thought about it:)
