Stir-fry Steak & Veggies

1 1/2 cups uncooked instant brown rice

1 Tbsp cornstarch

1 Tbsp brown sugar

3/4 tsp ground ginger

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp pepper

1/2 cup cold water

1/4 soy sauce

1 lb boneless sirloin steak, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

2 Tbsp canola oil    divided

1 pkg (16 oz) frozen stir-fry vegetable blend, thawed……I used broccoli stir-fry

1. Cook rice according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, brown sugar and seasonings. Stir in water and soy sauce until smooth: set aside.

2. In a large nonstick skillet or wok coated with cooking spray, stir-fry beef in 1 Tbsp oil until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm. Stir-fry vegetables in remaining oil until crisp-tender.

3. Stir cornstarch mixture and add to the pan: cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add beef, heat through. Serve with rice.

This is very easy to make and yum !!

Today’s quote is from Mae West…..

“I love censorship, I made a fortune out of it.”

I hope everyone is well and has a good day !!!
