This is a meal that you can customize to include your favorite vegetables, and you have the option to make it as spicy as you desire. The stir fry’s biggest selling point is that it can be prepared in just 30 minutes.

Most of the effort in preparing this meal is in chopping up all the ingredients. I recommend starting off by getting the rice going – I just used a box of Rice-A-Roni. Next I chopped the bell pepper, and broccoli and I thinly sliced the steak.

Once everything is prepped it is time to start cooking. First you want to sauté the mushrooms in a touch of toasted sesame oil. Then you add the garlic, bell pepper, and broccoli and let it cook for a few minutes until it is nearly done.

You put the veggies aside, and quickly sear both sides of the beef. Then you add the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sugar, honey, and sriracha to create the sauce. Once the sauce thickens you add the vegetables and the rice and let everything cook for a few more minutes.

The total preparation time is just about 30 minutes. The rice takes the longest to cook, so it is key to get that going first.

I added my favorite veggies to the stir fry. You may want to try adding carrots, snow peas, baby corn, onions, bok choy, or water chestnuts. You could also opt to use quinoa instead of rice.
