Spicy Sweet & Sour Beef

I love my one-pot meals! I adapted this from another recipe to better suit my tastes. It's healthy and counts as a Weight Watchers Core recipe. This freezes well.

Spicy Sweet & Sour Beef

1 1/2 c. instant brown rice, uncooked
3/4 lb. lean ground beef
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 onion, chopped in 1/2-in pieces
1 green bell pepper, julienned
1 orange bell pepper, julienned
1 8-oz can water chestnuts, drained and chopped
1 20-oz can crushed pineapple (in juice), drained
1/2 c. soy sauce
1 tbsp. garlic-ginger stir fry sauce
1 tsp. ginger
2 tbsp. rice vinegar
dash cayenne pepper
salt & pepper to taste

Cook rice according to package directions. In a large skillet, cook ground beef. Drain and set aside. Heat oil in skillet and saute onion and peppers until tender.

Stir in water chestnuts, pineapple, soy sauce, garlic-ginger sauce, spices, and vinegar. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce thickens, about five minutes. Stir in rice.
