Spicy steak and rice bowl

image

Here’s what you need:

(Serves 4)

  • lean steak (left over is fine, I trimmed some flat iron steaks we had in the fridge)
  • 3 TBSP butter (or olive oil)
  • 2  (heaping/rounded) TBSP Minced garlic (chop your own or buy a jar)
  • 3 TBSP Worcestershire Sauce
  • 3 TBSP Soy Sauce
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (this brings some heat, adjust accordingly)
  • 1-2 tsp ginger (to taste)
  • 2 cups instant brown rice
  • vegetable broth to cook it in. (For my rice, it took 1 3/4 cup)
  • 3 cups of mixed vegetables

Here’s what you do:

  1. In saucepan, bring vegetable broth to a boil and cook rice according to package.
  2. Trim steak and cut steak into about 1 inch pieces (or smaller if you prefer, mine were between 1/2-1 inch)
  3. In a large pan, melt butter on medium and add garlic and red pepper flakes. Stir around.
  4. Add steak, Worcestershire and soy sauces, and ginger. Continue to cook on medium, roughly 6-8 minutes. Cut into a piece and see if it’s done to your liking.
  5. Cook vegetables (I put these in the microwave while the steak and rice cook.)
  6. When steak and rice are done, add rice to frying pan and mix in. There should be a butter sauce in the bottom. Trust me, you want this!
  7. Cook on low until sauce is mostly absorbed. Stirring. Stirring.
  8. Add mixed vegetables. Mix all together, now!
  9. Let stand for 5-10 min and enjoy.

I want you to know that I generally just make this, no measuring needed. For you though? I measured this time. I’ve also made this with shrimp, tofu, and chicken. Be warned that a little bit of red pepper flakes go a long way!

    I might try this too. Except I’ll need a substitute for the mixed veggies. Usually has carrots (blech).

  2. Sue could get Broccoli Florets!!!! And Birds eye makes interesting mixed veggies without carrots!!!!

    I love this. It looks so tasty!
