Cilantro Beef Fried Rice

Made an easy lunch yesterday as a means to clean out the fridge. I started with a beef stir-fry, then realized that I have some cooked jasmine rice left in the fridge, so I made fried rice. Added cilantro and peas and red bell pepper for a complete meal. Look Ma, told you I'm feeding my kids!
Cilantro Beef Fried Rice
1 lb flank steak fried thinly
1 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs fish sauce (optional)
1 tbs sesame oil
1 tbs brown sugar
2 small garlic cloves, minced
1 shallot
2 cups cooked rice
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
Marinate flank steak in the next 5 ingredients for 30 mins. In a hot non-stick wok, add 1 tbs oil. Stir-fry the flank steak til there's no red. Careful as it'll be sizzling. Remove from wok. Add 1 tbs oil and stir fry shallots, peas and red bell pepper til fragrant. Add rice and stir til mixed. Add beaten egg and stir til mixed. Return beef to wok and stir til mixed. Add cilantro and stir fry for another minute. Serve immediately.

I didn't like cilantro until I grew up! When I was little, I hated the stuff!

I made nasi goreng/fried rice too this weekend, added leftover fried chicken instead of beef. Your cilantro beef fried rice is mouth watering!

Hi Steamy Kitchen,
My kids would eat little bits of cilantro when they know there's ice cream afterwards. :)
