Beef Stir Fry
Here is a recipe for one of our favorite meals, beef stir fry.
1 1/2 pounds lean round, sirloin, or flank, in strips
1 onion, sliced
8 oz. sliced fresh mushrooms, or more if you like mushrooms
6 cups fresh broccoli
2 large green peppers, sliced
2 cups zucchini squash, sliced or in bite sized pieces
2 cups fresh tomatoes, chopped
5-6 cloves garlic, crushed or finely chopped
1/2 cup of soy sauce
1/2 cup of water
1 tsp. of ginger, more if freshly grated
3-4 T honey
Pour marinade over the beef and allow to sit 4 hours up to 24 hours.
Coat your pan with olive oil, saute onions, add meat and the marinade. After meat is cooked, add broccoli, then a few minutes later add the squash, and a few minutes later add the mushrooms, and then tomatoes. I try to keep the broccoli a little crunchy by not cooking too long and sometimes add more soy sauce.
Serve over rice -- brown, white or wild -- your choice.
Many times I divide the recipe in half for freezing after cooking the meat and onions.
Until next time, God bless.
