Beef and Vegetables in Peanut Sauce
For peanut sauce, in a small saucepan, stir together the cold water and peanut butter powder until powder dissolves. Stir in teriyaki sauce, vinegar, honey, ginger, and crushed red pepper. Bring to boiling, stirring occasionally. Boil gently, uncovered, for 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened; set aside.Advertisement

Add the peanut sauce, stirring to coat; if necessary, heat through.
Serve beef and vegetable mixture over the hot brown rice.
