Food Favorite on a Friday!

Ok so here's my favorite new-ish thing I've cooked this week!

Steak & Veggie Teriyaki Stir Fry  w/rice

You need:
Large-ish Beef round steak (or you can use a couple chicken breasts if you prefer)
Teriyaki sauce
Frozen stir fry veggies (you can use fresh ones too-- we just don't go through produce quick enough so most veggies I buy frozen)
1 packet of Knorr Asian Sides "Chicken Fried Rice"  (you can also just use plain white rice or if you are ambitious- can make your own fried rice.  I use this because its a gajillion times easier AND only takes like 10 minutes!)

Step 1-  Cut thawed meat into strips

Step 2-  Marinade strips of meat in teriyaki sauce.  I put mine in in the morning and marinated them all day.  If you prefer a stronger teriyaki flavor, put them in the marinade the day or night before.

Step 3- Cook steak to approx. medium "done-ness".  It'll continue to cook when you mix it with the veggies, so if you prefer your steaks more rare, don't cook them as long by themselves.  Chicken of course cook thoroughly.

Step 4- While the meat is cooking, Pour teriyaki sauce into the bottom of a frying pan, enough so it covers the bottom.

Step 5- Put in frozen (or fresh) stir fry veggies and the (mostly) cooked meat.  Stir fry in the teriyaki sauce until done.

Step 6- Prepare rice according to package directions.  You may want to start it when the other stuff is cooking.

And that's it!  Super easy, and takes no time at all.  I'd venture to say it's fairly healthy as well :)
