Sesame Flavored Beef

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by IngridH

From Just This is a very simple beef recipe that I like to include in a bento box along with some rice and vegetables for an easy take to work lunch. I put the meat in the marinade the night before, then quickly stir fry it in the morning before packing into my lunchbox.

This is almost a teriyaki kind of meal. Great idea for lunches. I made a triple batch, cooled it down via a refrigerator and had several days of lunches. At work, just pop everything into the microwave. Warm it up and you are good to go.
