Yield: 4 to 6 servings
Stack beef steaks; cut lengthwise into 1- inch wide strips, then crosswise into 1- inch pieces.
Heat butter in Dutch oven over medium-high heat until melted. Add 1/2 beef and 1/2 of garlic; stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes or until outside surface of beef is no longer pink. (Do not overcook.) Remove from Dutch oven. Repeat with remaining beef and garlic. Season with 2 teaspoons seasoning mixture from rice mix.
Combine rice mix, remaining seasoning mixture, water and tomatoes in Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover tightly and simmer 15 to 17 minutes or until rice is tender.
Return beef to Dutch oven; heat through. Stir in cilantro, if desired. Serve immediately.
