Oriental Beef
Brown Rice

       Who says you can't make a Chinese dinner with ground beef?  It's economical, quick and tasty... even if it's not authentic. Use whatever mushrooms are left from Friday.

Oriental Beef and Vegetables

Total time: 30 minutes
    You could substitute thinly sliced flank steak or beef pre-cut for stir-fry if you prefer.  Any bits of vegetable left in the fridge would be fine in this: sliced Brussels sprouts, broccoli, whatever.
