Gourmet Monday

In my opinion this is not what I would call a Gourmet meal. But lately it has seemed like every time I have a bunch of food out the realtor calls I am bringing someone over right now. Run Run hurry hurry put ever thing away. Crossing our fingers that today is the day we have an offer.
To make this stir fry I grabbed a frozen steak so I can not quite remember what kind it was I would guess a New York cut but you could use any cut. While the steak was still frozen I sliced it thinly. The marinade made the steak very tender and flavorful. The red pepper flakes add just a little zip to the beef.Marinated Beef Stir- Fry

2 Tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups cold water
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 bunch broccoli chopped
3 medium carrots, julienned
1 boneless beef steak cut into strips
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 red pepper, cut into strips
1 yellow pepper, cut into strips
1 cup of white pearl onions

In a medium bowl, combine the cornstarch, water and 2 tablespoons soy sauce, minced garlic, and red pepper flakes until smooth add steak and marinade for several hours.
In a very large skillet or a wok, stir- fry broccoli and carrots until begin to soften. Add the beef and remaining soy sauce; stir -fry until meat is no longer pink. Remove and keep warm.
In the same pan stir- fry the peppers and onion until crisp-tender. Return beef to the pan bring to boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve over rice.

What a beautiful dish.

Btw Lynette, fyi, in Chinese custome, we don't dare to put chopsticks in the standing position in a bowl especially on the rice or putting chopsticks inside the bowl because usually that's the way when we serve it for the dead people on the praying desk.
