Cook bulgur
  • Add half the sesame oil to a medium pot over medium heat.
  • When hot, add bulgur. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min.
  • Add 2/3 cup (1 cup) water and 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) salt. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.  Cover and remove from heat. Let stand until bulgur is tender and liquid is absorbed, 16-18 min. 
Prep and toast sesame seeds
  • Meanwhile, cut zucchini into 1/2-inch half moons. 
  • Thinly slice green onion. 
  • Whisk together soy sauce, 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) brown sugar, 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) cornstarch and 1/4 cup (1/2 cup) water in a small bowl. Set aside. 
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add sesame seeds to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until fragrant, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!) Transfer to a plate.
Cook zucchini
  • Add remaining sesame oil to the same pan, then zucchini. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 3-4 min. 
  • Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Transfer to a plate. 
Cook beef
  • Add beef and Moo Shu Spice Blend to the same pan. Cook, breaking up beef into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.**
  • Carefully drain and discard excess fat.
  • Add zucchini and soy mixture and cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens and coats beef, 1-2 min. Season with salt and pepper.
Finish and serve
  • Stir half the sesame seeds into bulgur and fluff with a fork. 
  • Divide bulgur between bowls. 
  • Top with beef-zucchini mixture.
  • Drizzle half the spicy mayo (use all for 4 ppl) over top.
  • Sprinkle green onions and remaining sesame seeds over top.
