    Step 1

  • Prepare rice according to package directions.

    Step 2

  • Meanwhile, slice steak into thin strips. Season with black pepper and garlic powder.

    Step 3

  • Heat oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook beef, stirring, for 4-5 minutes, or until cooked through. Add bell peppers and onions and sauté for 3-4 minutes, until crisp-tender.

    Step 4

  • Combine teriyaki sauce, water and cornstarch in a small bowl. Add to beef mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Simmer for 2 minutes, or until sauce thickens slightly. Serve beef mixture over rice. Garnish with sesame seeds, if using.
