So, I love food. Really, I LOVE food.
I eat all sorts of food, but not that Tapas stuff from Spain. Granted you can get some good stuff, but it just doesn't do it for me. Nor does Tex Mex and any foods that lack spicy goodness. Sorry Southern Africa and much of East Africa.
Because I love food, I love eating out, which can be very expensive. Consequently, I try to learn how to make my favorite dishes. For that reason, one of my hubby's many Indian friends came over and taught me how to make Indian food and I have never turned back.
But before I met Husband, who doesn't quite like Chinese food, I used to make various stir fry dishes and was quite handy with my Sesame sauce, soy sauce, wasabi garlic sauce and other Eastern ingredients. However, I have gotten back to business and below in my Asian beef a la SSD =)
Here are the ingredients I used:
And some more ingredients:
(That McCormick's Salt Free Garlic & Herb seasoning is the truth, people!)
I also used fresh basil leaves, fresh spring onions, fresh coriander, and sliced onions (which are, unfortunately, not pictured).
I cleaned my beef strips, seasoned them with the ingredients in Picture 2 and my fresh herbs and onions. I also poured in some soy sauce (not too much), oyster sauce, teriyaki sauce and 3 tablespoons of chili garlic sauce (the red plastic container in Picture 1).
After they sat for approximately 30 minutes, I poured some oil into a wok, let it heat up and threw the seasoned beef in. I tossed it around until all the beef was nice and brown. Then, I threw in some frozen pepper strips and frozen mixed vegetables.
I hope it looks as yummy as it tasted, folks! I have since modified the recipe to include broccoli, which I love. This meal on some rice (usually cooked with chicken stock and turmeric seasoning) is a quick and easy way to get vegetables in the kids and manage to have a non-chicken meal. You guys know how I feel about chicken. =)
