Asian Beef & Rice


Okay, I know I normally give you a step by step recipe, but this time I totally spaced it.  We had just gotten back into town, had been cleaning like crazy people and were expecting family and friends for dinner. I knew I would be making this Asian Beef & Rice, so I did a lot of the prep work before heading off to my Women of Grace girls group. Then, I just didn't even think about taking pics along the way. This is one of our favorite meals.  I couldn't wait to share the recipe with you, so you will only get the after shots of this delicious meal for now.  I promise to update it with pictures one day soon, as I'm sure this recipe will go back into our rotation. I hope you enjoy it!

Asian Beef with Rice
(about 6 servings)

1 1/2 lbs. boneless beef top loin or sirloin steak
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil (olive oil works here too
2 Tbsp. dry white wine
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. minced garlic, or 1 garlic clove crushed
1-2 Tbsp. vegetable oil (olive oil is fine)
1/2 onion cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 red bell pepper cut into 1 inch pieces
1 head of broccoli, steamed
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
Cooked Rice

Cut beef into thin strips against the grain of the meat. (It's easiest to do this when the meat is partially frozen.) Mix the soy sauce, vegetable oil, white wine (or broth), sugar, ginger, and garlic together. Stir in the beef to coat each piece. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Meanwhile, saute the onion and red bell pepper in oil until soft in a large skillet. Remove to plate. Drain beef, reserving marinade. Cook and stir beef in the same skillet over medium heat until beef is light brown, approximately 5 minutes. Return the vegetables to the pan with the meat. Add enough cold water to the reserved marinade to measure 1/2 cup. Add in the cornstarch, cover and shake the mixture until the cornstarch is incorporated. Stir gradually into the beef. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly; reduce heat. Simmer for 5 minutes uncovered. Add in the cooked broccoli at the very end. To serve, spoon 1/2 cup beef mixture onto 1/2 cup rice. This recipe is really easy to customize with different vegetables. We happen to love broccoli, so it always makes its way into the dish. Enjoy!
