  1. 1

    Cook The Ground Beef

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil, ground beef, and ¼ tsp. salt to hot pan. Break up meat until no pink remains and ground beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Drain excess liquid from pan, if desired. While ground beef cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim zucchini ends, halve lengthwise, and cut into ¼” half-moons. In a mixing bowl, combine ⅓ cup water and cornstarch until cornstarch is dissolved. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Cook the Sauce

    Add zucchini and a pinch of salt to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly browned and tender, 3-4 minutes. Stir in cornstarch mixture to recombine. Stir in orange sauce, soy sauce, and cornstarch mixture. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Heat Rice and Finish Dish

    Carefully massage rice in bag to break up any clumps. Remove rice from packaging. Place rice in a microwave-safe bowl with 2 Tbsp. water. Cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave until warm, 2 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping rice with ground beef mixture and garnishing with wonton strips, cashews, and red pepper flakes (to taste). Bon appétit!
