Heat a large, dry fry-pan on medium heat and toast sesame seeds, stir­ring con­stantly, for about 30 sec­onds, un­til light brown. Re­move from pan and set aside.

Re­turn pan to high heat with a driz­zle of oil. Stir-fry beef, in batches, for about 1 minute, un­til just cooked through. Set aside, cov­ered with foil, to rest for a few min­utes. Mix all teriyaki dress­ing in­gre­di­ents together in a small bowl.

To serve, spoon rice into bowls and top with mar­i­nated Ja­panese beef, a mix­ture of chopped veges and mint. Driz­zle over teriyaki dress­ing and sprin­kle over sesame seeds.
