It has been many years since I made a dish like this. The nice part about making Asian-inspired meals at home is that you get to choose what goes into the dish and what is left out (such as MSG, which I would never use). The chopping of the veggies takes a bit of advance prep work, but can easily be accomplished within a few minutes. The timetable here is to start steaming the rice as you prep the vegetables, mix up your sauce and set aside, then quickly stir-fry the beef and vegetables together until everything is cooked to your liking. Stir in the sauce, serve over the cooked rice…sit down and watch a miove!
