  • 2 teaspoons McCormick® Ginger, Ground
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Garlic Powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon McCormick® Red Pepper, Ground
  • 1 pound boneless beef sirloin steak, cut into thin strips

  • 5 cups cut-up vegetables, such as broccoli florets, sliced onion, sugar snap peas and red bell pepper strips
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Sesame Seed
Directions

1. Mix orange juice, soy sauce, ginger, garlic powder and ground red pepper in small bowl. Reserve 1/2 of the marinade. Place beef in large resealable plastic bag or glass dish. Add remaining marinade; turn to coat well. Refrigerate 15 minutes or longer for extra flavor.

2. Heat oil in large skillet on high heat. Remove beef from marinade. Add beef to skillet; stir fry 3 minutes or until beef is no longer pink. Remove beef from skillet. Add vegetables; stir fry 3 to 5 minutes or until tender-crisp.

3. Mix reserved marinade with honey and cornstarch until smooth. Stir into skillet. Stirring constantly, bring to boil on medium heat and boil 1 minute. Return beef to skillet. Cook until heated through. Serve over hot cooked brown rice, if desired. Sprinkle with sesame seed before serving.

To Toast Sesame Seed: Heat small skillet on medium heat. Add sesame seed; cook and stir 2 minutes or until golden brown and fragrant. Immediately pour out of hot pan to avoid over-toasting.

Perfect Brown Rice Recipe

Submitted by RecipeTips.com
Submit A Photo
Ingredients
  • Brown Rice
  • Water
  • Salt to taste
Directions
1. Put brown rice and water together in a pot with a lid. Use the ratio of 1.5 cups water to 1 cup rice. I normally make 3 cups rice with 4 1/2 cups water for a single batch.

2. Set the heat to maximum and bring the rice and water to a boil uncovered. Then put the lid on the pot and reduce the heat to low/simmer. If the lid has a steam valve, keep it closed. Let the rice simmer for 20 minutes.

3. Turn off the heat, and let the rice sit in the covered pot for another 10 minutes. It's OK if you let the rice sit longer than 10 minutes but don't let it go any less. If you like your rice chewy, remove lid after 10 minutes. If you like your rice softer, leave the lid on for 20-30 minutes.

4. Eat and enjoy. Be careful when you remove the lid, since a lot of steam may escape.
