It’s Recipe Wednesday! A few days ago, I got a craving for Chinese food. Rather than order takeout, I decided to make something on my own. It was delicious, so I thought I would share.
Beef Stir Fry
- 1 pound lean steak, cut into strips or bite size pieces
- 1 small onion, cut into strips
- 8 oz snow peas
- 8 oz carrots sliced (I used pre-cut chips)
- 1 cup fat-free, low sodium beef broth
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 1 Tbs coconut oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 Tbs whole wheat flour
- 2 Tbs low-sodium soy sauce
- sesame seeds (optional)
Heat coconut oil in non-stick skillet over medium heat, add steak and brown on the outside. Once the steak is browned, add vegetables, garlic, and beef broth. Simmer uncovered about 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender and meat is cooked through. Add sesame oil, soy sauce, and flour, continue to simmer 5-7 minutes until sauce thickens slightly. Serve over brown rice or quinoa, top with sesame seeds.
Voila! Quick, easy, and delicious. If you don’t like my choice of vegetables, you can always substitute any veggies you prefer. I like my stir fry veggies to have a little crunch, but you can adjust the cooking time if you prefer them on the softer side. Let me know what you think!
