Diabetic Beef Fried Rice

Another diabetic recipe i have made which tastes great, the ones i didnt like i wont be adding here. This recipe reminded me of a fried rice my mum used to make years ago and i had never been able to make it even though of course it seems pretty simple. For some reason give me something fancier to cook and i can cook it with no problems.

With the adding of the Sesame sauce it just adds a hint of something that seems to finish the recipe off. This recipe should feed 6 people, Is a great recipe if you have any left over rice (kept no longer than 3 days)
