  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed pepper
  • 1 package (16 oz) frozen Asian vegetable blend
  • 1/3 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
  • Hot cooked brown rice
  • chopped green onions


Combine kung pao sauce, water and red pepper in small bowl. Place beef steaks and sauce mixture in large nonstick skillet; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover tightly and simmer 1-1/4 to 1-3/4 hours or until beef is fork-tender.

Remove beef; keep warm. Add frozen vegetables to skillet; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook, covered, 5 to 7 minutes or until just tender, stirring once. Stir in peanuts.

Serve steaks with vegetable mixture over rice, if desired. Sprinkle with green onions, if desired.
