Oriental Beef with Brown Rice

Total time: 30 minutes
     You could substitute thinly sliced flank steak or beef pre-cut for stir-fry if you prefer.  Any bits of vegetable left in the fridge would be fine in this: sliced Brussels sprouts, broccoli, whatever.

Oriental Beef with Brown Rice Ingredients:


Brown Rice                                 

Total time: 20 minutes             or whatever your package says
I use 'Uncle Ben's' which is all I can get and it is quick cooking.  It looks like brown Basmati and cooks in 15 minutes.  You could substitute regular or Basmati.

Cook rice according to package instructions adding the herbs with the stock or water. Fluff and serve.
