Fast, Easy & Delicious

Got home late. Kids hungry. Husband hungrier. Scouts in 1.5 hours. No meat defrosted! Ach!

Freezer:

1.5 lb thin cut sirloin
Frozen yellow sweet corn

Fridge:

Green Pepper
Red Pepper
Orange Pepper
Green Onion
(rinse and slice all veggies)

Pantry:

CalRose White Rice
2 pkgs beef & herb gravy
Janes Mixed Up Salt

Put sirloin in microwave for about 3 minutes to defrost

Make the Rice:
Pour 3.5 cups water, a pinch of salt and 1 tbsp vegetable oil in pot. Bring to a rolling boil. Add 2 cups rice. Stir twice. Bring to a boil. Turn heat to "low" cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Stirring once when almost all of the water is dissolved.

Heat a skillet on high.
Remove meat from microwave and slice into .5 inch strips. Sprinkle well with Mixed up salt.
When skillet is hot, add 2 tbsp (or so) vegetable oil.
Add meat and sear all over. Remove to a side plate.

In the same skillet, add peppers and sear. Lower heat to medium, add 2 cups of water and 2 pkgs of gravy mix. De-glaze pan. Taste sauce. Add salt, pepper and whatever spices you like at this time.

Add meat to pan and 1/2 cup water, lower heat to just between low and medium. Cover and simmer until meat is tender, about 30 minutes. Keep checking for flavor and doctor it as you see fit. If the sauce get's too thick just add a bit of water. The sauce should "cling" to the spoon when you stir it.

Yum Yum Yummy my friends. And so so so easy.

Oh yeah, throw the frozen corn in a microwave safe dish, Cover in plastic wrap and nuke for 5 minutes with a pat of butter and some mixed up salt.

Kids ate it all!

Just a tip: Use more red and orange pepper. They are sweeter than the green pepper.
