  1. Toss rice with 1 tbs. (15 ml) cooking oil (leftover rice is best for fried rice)
  2. Whisk eggs with a pinch of salt and a few turns of ground pepper
  3. Heat a wok over medium-high heat. Add in 1 tsp. (5 ml) oil and then white parts of the green onions to heated oil with a pinch of salt. Saute for ~15 seconds and then add eggs. Scramble with a wooden spoon
  4. When eggs are lightly scrambled, push them aside and add in rice, frozen vegetables, soy sauce, white pepper, and sweetener. Toss until all ingredients are warmed through. Season to taste with any of the seasonings. Mix in green parts of the green onions. Transfer rice to a serving bowl and return wok to medium-high heat
  5. Add in 1 tsp. (5 ml) oil and then beef to heated oil. Stir-fry (basically toss around) beef for ~3 minutes, and then remove from pan. It does not need to be cooked through at this point
  6. Return wok to heat. Add another tsp. (5 ml) of oil and then sliced garlic to heated oil. Once you can smell the garlic, add broccoli with a dash of salt. Stir-fry broccoli until it’s almost cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. If at any point the pan looks dry or that the broccoli may burn, add in stock / water (~1 tbs. (15 ml) at a time)
  7. Add beef back into the pan. Push all ingredients to the side, forming a donut in the middle of the wok. Give sauce a stir and then pour it into the hole. Let it sit until you see it darken in color and start to bubble a lot. When that happens, toss everything through. Add in lemon juice at the end and season to taste with salt & pepper.
