  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound skirt steak, cut against the grain into thin strips
  • 8 ounces French green beans (haricots verts), trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and julienned
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic (4 to 5 large cloves)
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dark Asian sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
  • 2 cups hot steamed rice, for serving
  • Cooking Directions

    Set the multi-cooker to the "white rice" program, and when it is hot, add the vegetable oil. Working in batches, brown the steak on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes per batch. Transfer the steak to a platter, using a

    slotted spoon.

    Add the green beans, bell pepper, garlic, and ginger to the multi-cooker, close the lid, and cook for 10 minutes.

    Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the fish sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, and chili garlic sauce and whisk well.

    Return the steak to the multi-cooker, add the sauce, and cook for 5 minutes with the lid open, stirring occasionally.

    Serve immediately with the cooked rice.
