Crisped Brown Rice with Beef, Vegetables and Eggs

crisped brown rice and bbef
I saw this recipe in a magazine I recently started getting, Whole Living, and their picture looked amazing (see it here). It included so many things I love...rice, eggs, and cabbage. It ended up being quite a hit and a fun variation of stir fry! I am re-inspired to try more new, healthy recipes again after being in a bit of a cooking rut!

* 4 ounces sirloin steak, trimmed of fat and sliced into 1/4-inch-thick strips
* 2 teaspoons low-sodium tamari sauce (I used low-sodium soy sauce)
* 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
* 1 garlic clove, minced
* 6 scallions, chopped
* 1/4 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
* 1/4 cup water, plus more for saucepan
* 2 large carrots (6 ounces), julienned
* 8 leaves napa cabbage (8 ounces), sliced into 1/2-inch-thick strips
* 1 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
* 3 cups cooked short-grain brown rice
* Coarse salt
* 4 large eggs

1. Marinate sirloin in tamari with 1 teaspoon ginger, the garlic, 1 scallion, and the red-pepper flakes. Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Cook remaining scallions with the carrots and cabbage until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate using a wire-mesh skimmer.
2. Heat a medium-heavy skillet over high heat; add 1 teaspoon oil, and sear sirloin, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes per side. Transfer to plate. Return skillet to medium heat, and add remaining 1/2 teaspoon oil and 2 teaspoons ginger. Cook until sizzling. Stir in rice and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir in scallion-sirloin mixture and any juices. Add water, and cook, covered, until rice is heated through and sizzling, 7 to 8 minutes.
3. Uncover, and make 4 indentations in the rice with the back of a spoon. Crack 1 egg into each, and cook, covered, until whites are set but yolks are still runny, about 4 minutes. Stir eggs into rice.
