Sesame Beef Stir-Fry

I've been meaning to post this recipe for awhile. This is one of my favorite recipes I got from the Body for Life cookbook. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as we do.

Serving: 2
Preparation Time: 45 minutes


2 portions brown rice (about 1/2 cup uncooked)
2 portions lean ground beef (about 1/2 lb)
1 T. toasted sesame oil (this stuff is SOOOOO good, totally worth the $$$)
2 cloves garlic, minced (I also use crushed garlic)
3 green onions, sliced
1 cup broccoli slaw(found near bagged salads in produce department)
1 cup napa cabbage, shredded
1 T. lite soy sauce
Crushed red pepper flakes, to taste


1. Prepare brown rice according to its package directions.
2. While the rice is cooking, in a med. skillet or wok, brown the ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Remove the beef from the skillet, drain and set aside.
3. Heat sesame oil in the skillet over med-high heat. Add garlic and green onions, stir-fry for 2 min. Add the slaw and cabbage, stir-fry for 2 min. Add the rice and soy sauce, stir-fry for 2 more min.
4. Return the cooked ground beef or the skillet with the rice and vegetable mixture and season with red pepper flakes, to taste. Stir until ingredients are will combined and heated through, about, 2 minutes.
5. Divide into 2 portions, serve and enjoy!

Side note:
I have substituted the beef with chicken or make it meatless for a vegetarian dish.
