szechuan beef

green giant - stir fry szechuan
2-3 cups of rice
1/2 - 1lb beef
cook the rice in rice cooker, cook the stir fry as directed on the packet. cooking beef can be tricky, poke it with fork to make sure the inside is cooked.

rice: clean the rice in running water, stir a little, drain. add 1.5 cup of water for every cup of rice, usually water level should be 1/2 inch above the rice. it's better to have too little water and add more later than to have too much water and end up with mushie rice.

meat: you can use any meat, but i prefer flank. you can store meat in freezer for few months, as long as you don't keep refreezing and defrosting it. cut the meat up into serving size blocks, put them in freezer bags and freeze them separately, so that you never have to defrost more than what you need. meat is easier to cut if it's half frozen, so don't defrost all the way.

stir fry: cut meat into bite size. in a pot or frying pan, heat up one tsp of oil (vege, corolla, peanut etc), throw in meat, stir a little, add the sauce from packet, throw in vege, stir some more, you can cover the pot to cook faster. add in the nuts when it's almost done, stir few more times. and ready to dish!
