Another 30-minute meal! And we have another hit!!

The recipe is from

Rave reviews from both sides of the table!!


1 lb. flank steak, cut into bite-size pieces

kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

5 tsp. sugar, divided

1 tbsp. cornstarch

2 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. vegetable oil, divided, plus more for drizzling

2 large eggs, beaten

1 tsp. grated ginger

1 onion, diced

1 c. frozen mixed vegetables

3 c. leftover white rice

3 tbsp. soy sauce

1 tsp. white vinegar

1 tsp. sesame oil


In a medium bowl, season meat with salt, pepper, and 1 teaspoon sugar, then toss with cornstarch until well-coated. Set aside.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 teaspoon of oil. Add eggs and scramble using a rubber spatula; transfer to a plate. Turn the heat on high, and add another teaspoon of oil. Add meat, working in batches, and cook until seared all over, about 2 minutes per side; transfer to a plate.

In the same skillet over medium-low heat, add  2 tablespoons oil, onion, and ginger, and cook until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add peas and 2 tablespoons water, and cook until peas are tender. Add cooked rice and break up using a spatula, cooking 2 to 3 minutes more. Stir in soy sauce, white vinegar, pepper, remaining 4 teaspoons sugar, and sesame oil. Add back the meat and eggs, then toss together and serve immediately.
