Beef-Shishito Stir Fry Rice Bowl

I have to say that I struggle with Asian flavors and making stir fry, they are super flavorful but they can be tricky to get just right.  All that said, I am super happy with the flavors I got with this rice bowl and it is so easy, perfect for a weeknight.  The beef has a great mixture of spice and sweetness from the quick marinade. 
I cooked this with some shishito peppers which are really a nice Asian veggies to pair with a stir fry.  Most of them aren’t spicy (generally they are sweet but a small percentage of them can be pretty spicy) and are a perfect one-bite option.  My husband doesn’t typically like easting big pieces of peppers and he loves these!!  These have gotten really popular recently and have popped up on a number of cooking competition shows as they are so easy to cook and generally approachable.
The rice is made with some coconut milk, ginger, and lime and is just awesome.  It had a perfect amount of stickiness and flavor that complimented the beef really well.  I love trying to add flavor to rice, it is a great canvas as it just absorbs flavor so readily.
