Healthy Panaeng "Beef" in Red Curry Peanut Sauce

The other day my local grocery store had a sale on Morningstar Meal Starters in the frozen section for 50% off.  I purchased several of the chicken and beef, which are vegan and 27% less fat than regular meat, and begin looking for recipes to use them in.  Here is the one I made for tonight's dinner:

1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 cup water
1 package of Morningstar meal starters, beef
2 tablespoons of panaeng curry paste
2 tablespoons of fish sauce
 2 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons ground peanuts
1 tablespoon of lime juice
2 cups of jasmine rice, steamed

In a wok, stir 1/2 a can of coconut milk and the water together and bring to a simmer.  Toss in the beef strips and stir, simmering for about 5 minutes.  Remove the beef using a slotted spoon and set aside.  Add the curry paste and a few more tablespoons of the coconut milk, press and stir to make a paste for about 3 minutes.  Return the beef strips to the wok, add the remaining coconut milk and remaining ingredients.  Continue stirring and maintain a simmer for another 3 minutes, or until the sauce is smooth and fragrant.  Serve over a bowl of steamed jasmine rice and enjoy.
