Here's what you'll need:
For the marinade:
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup soy sauce (I use a gluten-free brand)
2 teaspoons crushed ginger
1 tablespoon minced garlic
|Here are two of my cheats! I use frozen crushed ginger. |
It comes in little cubes that you just pop out and add to your dish.
I also use minced garlic from a jar.
1 pound sliced beef (you can buy it pre-sliced in the meat section of your grocery store)
2 cups broccoli florets (I buy the pre-cut ones in the bag)
1 cup carrots, cut into small pieces
2 cups mushrooms
1 red pepper, cut into slices
1/2 yellow onion, cut into thin slices
For the sauce
1 cup water
1/2 cup soy sauce (gluten-free)
1 1/2 teaspoons dried ginger OR two frozen crushed ginger cubes (see pic above)
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons corn starch
Makes 4 servings.
Here's what to do:
Marinate the slices of beef in the water, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger marinade for about 30 minutes.
Add 2 tablespoons of oil and heat up your wok or skillet on high heat. Add slices of beef along with the marinade to wok. Cook for 3-5 minutes until meat isn't pink.
Add in onions, carrots, peppers, and mushrooms. Stir and cook 2 to 3 more minutes.
Add in broccoli. Stir and cook another 3-5 minutes.
Add sauce and cook until sauce thickens.
For a garnish, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Serve with rice or noodles, or just plain!
I really wish I'd used my wok sooner! This was a fun dish to make and so easy! Now, we can have Chinese take-out at home anytime we want!! I'm already planning my next stir fry adventure!
