“Open sesame,” one of the forty thieves said to open the magic cave with treasure. The sesame in this dish won't unlock untold riches for you…. Or will it? Tasting the sweet-spicy teriyaki-sesame sauce enrobing the steak will make you feel worth a million bucks. The tender snap peas and scallion rice are great on their own, even better with a good coating of the sauce. Open sesame? Open your Home Chef box for even better (and true!) riches.
Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.
Place a small pot over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add white portions of green onions and pinch of salt to hot pot and stir until aromatic, 30-60 seconds.
Stir in rice and 1½ cup water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes.
Remove from burner. Stir in green portions of green onions and set aside.
While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.
