Tomato Brown Rice & Flank Steak

This was a very healthy & kid-tolerated meal.  Perhaps they weren’t jumping up and down about it, but we’re working on it. 

Brown Rice with Tomatoes

In a rice cooker, combine:

  • 1 cup brown rice,
  • 2 cups water, and
  • 1 large can (16oz) stewed tomatoes,
  • 1.5 tsp Italiano Seasoning.

Set that to cook one hour in advance.  Let `keep warm`without lifting the lid for nearly an hour.

Italiano Flank Steak

This I discovered quite by accident.  I forgot to remove the meat from the freezer, and managed to half-cook it in the microwave under the guise of `defrosting`.

  • 12 oz flank steak, defrosted or partially cooked in microwave by mistake
  • 1 tablespoon Italiano seasoning

Seriously – that`s it.  Told ya it was easy!  Place steak in frying pan.  Fry (no oil needed) 5 minutes over medium heat on both sides, or until desired doneness.

We put the rice, and steak with steamed broccoli, and it was delish!
