Spicy Thai Beef and Jasmine Rice

I love a good rice dish, and I love spicy beef so this recipe sounded like something I would enjoy. I just received my order from the Asian Food Grocer and was excited with all my Asian ingredients and my lovely chopsticks. One of the items I purchased was Jasmine rice. I modified the recipe, which was on the back of the rice package by tweaking the seasoning, adding more vegetables and using lean beef.
