Quick Dinner -Rice with Beef

This recipe is very similar to fried rice or plov but my very own easy version of a quick lunch or dinner. This is another recipe that calls for my baked beef in the oven. Because i always have that beef meat on hand, it is a life saver on busy days. This dish comes together in under 30 minutes and if you do have leftovers, it reheats very well too.

  1. 1. Wash the rice very good under cold water, draining the water and washing some more until the water runs clear.

    2. Preheat a deep skillet or a wok, add the oil. Chop the onion and add that to the skillet together with the baked beef.

    2. Cover with a lid and let it saute until the onions are soft.
