How to Make It

Step 1

Stir the cornstarch, broth, soy sauce and garlic powder in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth.

Step 2

Stir-fry the beef in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until it's well browned, stirring often. Pour off any fat.

Step 3

Reduce the heat to medium. Add the pepper and onion. Stir in the cornstarch mixture. Cook and stir until the mixture boils and thickens. Serve the beef mixture over the rice.

Recipe Tips

  • Ingredient Note: To make slicing easier, freeze the beef for 1 hour before slicing.
  • Time-Saving: You may also use 2 cups frozen red and/or green pepper strips for the fresh pepper strips in this recipe.
  • Make Ahead Freezer Meal: Cook and cool the rice completely, then place into a resealable freezer bag.  Prep the vegetables and place into another resealable freezer bag.  Slice the beef and place into a third resealable freezer bag.  Seal the bags (removing all air) and freeze.  Thaw the beef and vegetables overnight in the refrigerator before following the recipe as written.  Place the frozen rice into a microwavable serving bowl and add 6 tablespoons broth or water.  Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 minutes or until hot.

    tasty recipe

    This was easy and pretty tasty! I did not add the corn starch, but did add a can of diced tomatoes. That gave it a nice liquid to go with the rice.
