Sesame Beef Sirloin 
Total Time: 10 minutes + optional marinating time (30 minutes)
Prep: 5 minutes + optional marinating time (30 minutes)
Cook: 5 minutes

What you'll need
1/2 pound beef sirloin 
sesame oil 
sesame seeds
1/2 cup uncooked white or brown rice

For the Marinade
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 cloves garlic, pressed with a garlic press  
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 

1. Cut beef sirloin into 1-inch thick strips.  Season generously with pepper.
2. In a small mixing bowl, combine marinade ingredients together.  
3. Place sirloin strips into a large plastic bag.  Pour marinade over the meat.  Seal plastic bag and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. 
4. While the meat is marinating, cook rice according to package directions (I mixed in yellow corn and white onion to the rice before serving to get some extra veggies in for the day).
5. Heat sesame oil in a Wok or large pot.  Once oil is hot, carefully add beef strip to the pan.  Stir-fry until beef is cooked to desired doneness (about 5 minutes). 
6. Place beef strips over rice and sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving. 
Garlic Butter Green Beans
What you'll need
2 cups green beans, cooked (I like to use the steam in the bag green beans)
1 tablespoon butter
1 clove garlic, pressed with a garlic press
salt and pepper

1. Add butter, garlic, salt and pepper to a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until butter is completely melted.  Carefully remove bowl from the oven; mix well. 
2. Pour butter and garlic mixture over green beans.  Toss well.  Serve and enjoy!

Love the recipe. For whatever reason, I think beef and sesame go together very well. And I love that you serve that over corn rice. Yummy!
