We had leftover steak again.  This time it came from a friend's cookout and it was much more well done than either my husband or I liked so I sliced it thin for Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry (we don't want to waste free food).  We also had quite a few red bell peppers in the fridge (thanks to costco...I hadn't been to china town in a while and when my husband said he was stopping by costco I asked him to grab a few veggies.  He came back with a pack of 6 peppers and a 3 pound bag of broccoli florets...we now had plenty of veggies) so I decided to add them.  One of the great things about blogging is that it encourages me to be creative with my cooking and to try new things.  I make beef and broccoli pretty often but I've never added peppers and now I have a colorful new, delicious, recipe to share with my readers.

Beef Broccoli and Pepper Stirfry


Ingredients:

1 cup Leftover steak, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp brown sugar
dash chili oil
1-2 Tbsp high heat oil
1 Tbsp minced ginger
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 onion, sliced
2 cups broccoli florets
2 red bell peppers, sliced
1/4 cup water

Mix together the sauces, sugar, and chili oil then pour over steak.  Place in a zipper bag and mix well.  Refrigerate until ready to begin cooking.

Heat a large saute pan, or wok, over medium high heat.  When pan is hot add high heat oil (like canola, vegetable, or peanut) then begin to stir fry (have everything ready and work fast because this goes quick).

Add the garlic and ginger and stir fry until fragrant (only takes seconds) then add the onion until it softens then add the broccoli and peppers.  Stir fry for a bit then add 1/4 cup of water to help steam and tenderize the broccoli.  Cover the pan for a few minutes (more or less depending on how crisp or soft you like your broccoli).

Lastly add the steak and marinade mixing well to help flavor all the vegetables.  Once meat is heated through remove from heat and serve over rice.

Makes about 4 servings.  Enjoy.

  2. I often chop up bell peppers and then freeze them... But then end up using them up in a week or less anyway because I love throwing them in everything!
    Thanks for the meal idea. My meal planning repertoire has been running a bit low lately, so this will have to make the list. Pinning.

  3. Thanks Crochet Hooks. It's very easy. You could use any kind of precooked, sliced beef in this and I think it would work.

  4. Thanks for the pin Julie. I'm glad you like my idea. It's a great way to use leftover steak and you don't need very much meat the flavorful sauce and veggies really help fill you up.
