Before starting, preheat the oven to 425˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Using a strainer, rinse rice until water runs clear. Add 1 cup water and 1/8 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, add rice, then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. (NOTE: Reduce heat to low if water is boiling over.)Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.


Meanwhile, thinly slice green onions. Peel, then cut carrot in half lengthwise, then into 1/4-inch half-moons. Core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Peel, then mince or grate 1/2 tbsp ginger (dbl for 4 ppl).


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add beef, ginger, garlic, panko, half the sesame seeds and half the green onions to a large bowl. Season with salt, then combine. Roll mixture into 8 equal-sized meatballs (16 for 4 ppl).Arrange meatballs on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the middle of the oven until golden-brown and cooked through, 10-12 min.**


Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then carrots. Cook, stirring often, until slightly softened, 4-5 min. Add peppers. Cook, stirring often, until veggies are tender-crisp, 4-5 min. Season with salt and pepper.


Add meatballs, plum sauce, soy sauce and 1/4 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) to the pan with veggies. Cook, stirring, often until meatballs and veggies are coated in sauce, 1-2 min.


Fluff rice with a fork, then stir in remanining green onions and season with salt. Divide rice between plates, then top with meatballs and veggies. Spoon any remaining sauce from the pan over top. Sprinkle with remaining sesame seeds.
