Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry

This is a quick meal you can whip up for the family. It's nutritious, wholesome, and my kids ate all their veggies! Serves 6.

12 oz lean beef, any cut, sliced (I just used regular chuck)
1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp sesame seeds
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp rice vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp ground ginger
1 bag frozen stir fry mixed vegetables

Heat the sesame and vegetable oil. Cook the onion and garlic for a couple minutes, and add the beef. Saute for about 5 minutes, adding the sesame seeds, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger and red pepper flakes. Throw in your bag of mixed veggies, and saute for another 5 minutes or so, till all is done, and veggies don't look wilted. There will be a little liquid in the pan still, and that is fine.

Serve as a topping over white rice. Simple and yummy! My husband says I should cook this more often. About 6 points per serving.
