Beef & mushroom fried rice

BEEF & MUSHROOM FRIED RICE
Tonight we chose BEEF & MUSHROOM fried rice with pak choi.
People we speak to say one of their greatest aids to weight loss is being prepared. We agree and we are now more likely to plan ahead for the next few meals.
Having prepared some of this dish earlier, we were able to go about our busy day, and return to a meal which was ready in less than 10 minutes. We doubt we could have eaten sooner if we had chosen a takeaway!
The mushroom, egg fried rice was very delicate, and the whole dish was around 400-450 calories - which was pretty amazing. Here's how we made it:
BEEF & MUSHROOM RICE (serves two)
Ingredients
100g steak per person (either sirloin or rump) - cut into strips
2 tablespoons each of:  Mirin*, Sake*, Soy and sugar
pre-cooked Basmati rice (made using 75g of dried rice for the two of us)
sesame or groundnut oil
one egg
sliced mushrooms
***
Cook the rice earlier in the day and allow to cool completely before frying later.

For the teriyaki marinade/sauce mix together the MIRIN*, Sake*(see note below), soy sauce and sugar.

Marinate the strips of steak in the teriyaki sauce for as long as you can. 

Put the steak (and marinade) into a frying pan and cook according to your taste then remove and let it rest. While the steak is cooking the marinade will reduce to a sticky consistency.

Fry the sliced mushrooms until brown.

Place the cold rice in a frying pan containing a little oil, heat through then add the beaten egg and keep stirring until cooked. Add the mushrooms.

**If you don't have any Mirin, try sherry instead and Sake can be replaced with a dryish white wine.

Here's a link to our very first blog post about our weight loss journey, which we began in January 2011. We started this blog as a way of recording what we ate while losing weight. The blog is a food diary, and contains lots of recipes, tips and ideas about losing weight.
