Hey! So the other day I made stir fry for dinner with beef and vegetables, and it was veryy good if I do say so myself. So I’m just going to give you guys the vegetables that I used, but you’re welcome to change them up for your personal preference. I also made mine with brown rice to put a slightly more healthy streak to it, but again, your preference to what kind of rice you want as well. Hope you like it!
Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry
Ingredients: Beef strips (or chunks), snow peas, baby corn, broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, bell pepper, onion, olive oil, soy sauce, salt and pepper.
So the first step to cooking I guess would be the prepping. From the vegetables I picked to use, some of them require a little more chopping (the carrots, the pepper, the mushrooms, the onion, and the broccoli.) The mushrooms are the only thing that I would give advice on is the mushrooms. Everything this else is pretty easy. You can decide how big you want the vegetables to be in your meal. Mushrooms are interesting in the way that you clean them. You can’t really wash mushrooms because that kind of ruins them. So you either have to brush them with a mushroom brush or you can peel the outer layer. It’s a technique I learned in a Japanese restaurant a while ago. You pull the stem out of the mushroom cap, and underneath there should be a little lip underneath which you have to peel all the way to the top of the mushroom. Do that all around the rim until the cap is completely peeled. Then you can just slice it as thin or thick as you want. Now that the prep is all set, we can start the cooking.
Alright so start off, you want to put the rice on first. That’s the thing that’s going to take the most time to cook, so start that off. I would say about two cups of rice will feed about four people. I used brown rice for my recipe, but you’re more than welcome to use white, jasmine, whatever you want. Next we put a little bit of oil in a skillet and place the beef strips in. Toss the beef around until it’s thoroughly brown and cooked through. Season the beef with some salt and pepper to your taste while you’re cooking it. Once the beef is done, throw in all the the vegetables and pour some soy sauce over top of it. Once the vegetables cook and the rice is done, you’re pretty much ready to go. You just take the rice and mix it into the skillet with the beef and vegetables and season it to your liking with salt, pepper and soy sauce. Pretty simple :) Enjoy!
