Ingredients
  White rice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Thinly sliced carrots 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Vegetable oil 1 Tablespoon
  Lean beef flank steak 1⁄4 Pound, well-trimmed, cut into thin strips
  Green bell pepper 2 , cut into thin strips (1 Red And 1 Green)
  Chopped scallions 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm), minced
  Shredded chinese cabbage 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Fresh mushrooms 1⁄2 Pound, thinly sliced
  Water chestnuts 16 , thinly sliced
  Reduced-sodium soy sauce 3 Tablespoon
  Japanese rice vinegar 2 Tablespoon
  Sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Red pepper flakes 1⁄4 Teaspoon
Directions

1. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a medium-size saucepan over medium-high heat and stir in the rice. Cover the pan, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer 15 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed.
2. Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Blanch the carrots in the boiling water 3 minutes, or until crisp-tender; drain, cool under cold running water and set aside to drain thoroughly.
3. When the rice is cooked, remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
4. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the beef and saute 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the beef to a small bowl and set aside.
5. Add the bell peppers, scallions and garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Add the carrots, cabbage, mushrooms and water chestnuts, increase the heat to high, and cook, stirring frequently, 5 minutes.
6. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and red pepper flakes. Add this mixture, the rice and the beef to the skillet, and cook, stirring constantly, 4 to 5 minutes, or until all the ingredients are heated through.
