Instructions for Gestational diabetes recipes:


    • According to its packet instructions, cook the rice.


    • Combine Worcestershire sauce, beef stock, and corn flour in a small bowl. When fully mixed, add ginger.


    • When you set aside your seasoned beef for gestational diabetes recipe, take out a wok or frypan and heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium heat. Add half of the meat when the oil is hot enough. Wait around 3 minutes until it turns into a brown color. This instruction will lock beef’s juiciness.


    • Remove your beef from the pan and pour it over a plate covered with paper towel.


    • Repeat instruction set 3 and 4 for the other half of meat.


    • When you’re done with your meat, you will now prepare the vegetables for your gestational diabetes recipe. Add the remaining oil to the pan after you clean it completely. Add garlic, mushrooms, and onion. Cook for 2-3 minutes under low to medium heat until the vegetables are softened.


    • Add zucchini, carrot, green beans, and capsicum to your vegetables. Cook for 5 more minutes. If you like your vegetables crunchy, don’t cook for more than 3 minutes.


    • Pour in the seasoned beef to your pan and stir well. Leave if for a few minutes to cook together. The remaining source should thicken during this process.


    • Spoon your vegetables and beef onto rice. Later, sprinkle cashews and sesame seeds on top of it. You can also top it with fresh coriander/ cilantro.
