Sirloin Tips and Rice Pilaf

Are you looking for that simple but really great tasting dinner to wow your family?  This just may be it.  Dinner will be ready in about 40 minutes and everyone will love it!

4 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup orzo pasta
1 cup white rice
2 cups chicken broth
6 green onions sliced (white and green parts)
2 Tbsp fresh chives (sliced thin)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
2 lbs sirloin steak (cut into 1" cubes)
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
4 garlic cloves (minced)
1/2 cup fresh parsley (chopped)
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup dry white wine

Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat.  Add orzo and toast until golden (about 4 - 5 minutes).  Add rice and broth.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for about 15 minutes or until rice is tender.  Remove from heat, add green onions, chives and cheese.  Stir to combine.

Toss cubed beef with salt and pepper.  While the pilaf is simmering, heat 3 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Cook steak until browned on all sides (about 5 mins).  Add garlic, parsley, and zest; cook for 1 minute more.

Add lemon juice and wine to the pan and deglaze.  Serve steak with the rice pilaf.
