1 lb. thin strip steak

2 cups brown rice-rinsed, cooked in a rice cooker

1 bok choy-ends removed, sliced in half lengthwise and rough chopped

1/2 large or 1 whole medium yellow sweet onion-quartered and sliced

3 cloves fresh garlic-chopped

1 green bell pepper-rough chopped

3 button mushrooms-rough chopped

1 cup fresh green beans-ends removed and cut in half

1/2 cup fresh cilantro-rough chopped

1/2 tsp. sesame oil

1/2 tsp. sesame seeds-pan roast to a light golden brown

1 tsp. canola oil

1/4 tsp. Chinese 5 Spice

2 tsp. rice wine vinegar

1 orange-squeezed for juice

kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste-try to keep salt below a teaspoon for the entire dish

How to prepare: – use 2 non-stick skillets and a rice cooker

Start the brown rice. 2 cups of rice to 2 cups of water. Takes approximatley 15 minutes. Electric rice cookers will automatically keep the rice on warm while you prepare your dish.

Lightly season the strip steak with salt and pepper. Brown in the skillet over medium high heat. Let rest on a plate. Clean and dry the pan and pan roast the sesame seeds over medium heat for about a minute, or until the seeds turn a light golden brown. Pour the seeds into a container. Set the first skillet aside. When the strip steak has rested, about 3 minutes or more, slice into bite sized strips. Set aside.

In the second skillet, over medium high heat, pour the sesame oil and canola oil into the pan. When the oil is heated-not smoking-add the garlic and onion. Lightly season with salt and pepper. Pan saute for 2 minutes or until the onions start to turn light brown. Add the red and green bell peppers. Continue to saute another 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms and bok choy. Season the dish with a little more salt, pepper, and add the chinese 5 spice. Turn off the heat.


Over medium high heat,  add the strip steak back to the first skillet. Add half of the orange juice and cook until the juice is reduced to a beef-orange gravy. Add the beef to the skillet of vegetables, turn the heat back on to medium high, add the rest of the orange juice, the cilantro, and the toasted sesame seeds. Saute for 2 minutes. Serve over the brown rice.
