Instructions Checklist
  • In a pot, bring the rice and water to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 20 minutes.

  • Heat the sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook 2 cloves garlic for 2 minutes, until tender. Melt the butter in the skillet. Season the beef with salt and 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes. Cook and stir the beef in the skillet 10 minutes, until evenly brown. Reserving pan drippings, transfer the cooked beef to a bowl, and coat with 3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce.

  • Melt the remaining butter in a separate skillet over medium heat, and cook the remaining garlic 2 minutes, until tender. Remove garlic, and set aside. Stir the mushrooms and onions into the skillet, and cook until onions are tender. Mix in the cabbage, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and yellow bell pepper. Cook 3 minutes, until tender but still crisp. Remove skillet from heat, and mix in remaining 1/2 tablespoon teriyaki sauce and 1/2 the reserved pan drippings.

  • Heat the remaining pan drippings in the skillet over medium heat. Mix in the remaining red pepper flakes, teriyaki sauce from the beef bowl, the reserved garlic, cornstarch, brown sugar, beef broth, and orange jam. Cook 5 minutes, until thickened. Remove garlic, and stir in the beef to coat.

  • Serve the beef and vegetables, along with some of the skillet juices, over the cooked rice. Top with chow mein noodles, and sprinkle with mustard powder.

Found this very easy to prepare particulary if you buy all ready pre-cut vegetables or if cut all the veggies up the night before. I marinated the meat in the teriyaki sauce before cooking instead of afterwards. I didn't use cabbage but used snow peas instead. Took the suggestion of adding water chestnuts. Added some orange zest to the sauce right before serving. Read More

This is a yummy recipe but I give it a 3 because it is somewhat confusing. If I wasn't already comfortable in the kitchen I'd be completely overwhelmed. Seems like there are a lot of estimations - not sure why you'd need so much butter and cooking the meat for 10 min is way too long. However the flavors in the sauce are amazing and I like that it doesn't get too thick. Yummy recipe - just needs to be more exact. Read More

I did not use the seperate pans. I just cooked it all in one pan at the same time and it turned out great. I also didn't have stir fry noodles or mustard power so instead I added ginger powder. I don't usually like stir-fry all that much except that it's a good way to eat lots of vegtables. But this was very good. I added a big spoonful of peanut butter to the sauce and I substituted the orange jelly for pineapple juice concentrate (only because I didn't have anything orange flavored.) I also added cilantro and green onions at the end. Read More

This was confusing so just ended up dumping it all in the wok. It worked fine. No need to have extra pans. I ran out of sesame oil so I just heated some oil and threw in a handful of sesame seeds. Didn't have teriyaki so just used soy. I liked it...it was a little too sweet but overall it turned out pretty good. Read More

Very good. I didn't change anything except I doubled the sauce because we like things "wet". It was delicious and my family actually ate cabbage for once. Thanks for sharing! Read More

It is over the top delicious and that is the way I like it! I especially love the hot mustard sprinkle it adds extra zing and yet keeps it less spicy for those who like it milder. I used cabbage the flavor just melded with the others and provided crunch. Don't tell my wife but I wish she could come up with stuff like this. Read More
