Dinner in 30 Minutes: Beef Teriyaki Fried Rice for Two

How many times have you seen a recipe promising dinner in 30 minutes, only to discover they’re not counting the prep time for the ingredients, or you’re expected to do three things at once? This is not one of those recipes. You will have to get the steak (if frozen) and the rice out of the freezer in the morning so they’ll be thawed when you want to start dinner. Other than that, this really will go together in under 30 minutes.

2 small steaks*
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 box (two pouches) Wong Wing fried rice

Cut the steak into narrow strips. Put oil and soy sauce into a frying pan and add enough water to cover the bottom. Add the steak strips and cook until they reach your preferred level of done. Add the contents of the rice pouches and keep stirring until warmed through. You could also add some canned or frozen oriental vegetables if you want to make it healthier/go farther.

*I like to use Walmart’s Black River angus beef boneless cross-rib steaks—the seasoning on them blends nicely with the rest of the ingredients.
