Beef and Romaine Stir-Fry

While this recipe is not the healthiest (due to cornstarch, sugar and soy sauce) it is easy and very tasty. I’ve had this recipe forever and I think I got it from Paula Deen’s magazine, but couldn’t swear to it.  I have made my own changes that I prefer over the exact recipe I found long ago.

Beef Stir Fry

What ya need:

  • 1 pound – flank steak (cut in strips) or to make it easier just buy pre-cut stir fry beef
  • 2 tbsp – cornstarch
  • 1 tsp – salt
  • 1 tsp – pepper
  • 2 tbsp – olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp – minced garlic
  • ¼ cup – water
  • 3 tbsp – low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp – sugar
  • 1 tbsp – sherry
  • 2 red bell peppers – cut in slices
  • 1 package of romaine lettuce (or you can use broccoli)
  • Brown rice

What ya do:

  • In a medium bowl, combine beef, cornstarch, salt and pepper. Stir well.
  • In a large skillet or wok, heat oil over medium heat. Once heated, add beef mixture and garlic.  Cook till meat is no longer pink.
  • While beef and garlic mixture is cooking combine water, soy sauce, sugar and sherry in a small bowl.
  • Once beef is cooked through add sauce mixture and cook for about 2 minutes until sauce thickens just slightly.
  • Add bell peppers and romaine lettuce.
    • I use bagged romaine because its faster. I pick out real white pieces or pieces with the core/stem thingy’s.
    • You could also use broccoli in place of the lettuce.
  • Mix together until lettuce is wilted (it will wilt like spinach does).
  • Serve over brown rice.
