Steak Stir Fry
Recipe By: Megan
Recipe type: Dinner
- extra virgin olive oil
- 2 pounds 1" sirloin steak
- sea salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 cups brown rice
- 1 crown fresh broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
- ½ sweet onion, sliced thin
- ½ pound crimini mushrooms, sliced
- 2 cups shredded cabbage
- 2 cups snap peas
FOR THE SAUCE
- ½ cup soy sauce
- ½ cup rice vinegar
- ¼ cup honey
- 4 teaspoons cornstarch
- Start the rice cooking according to package directions.
- Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat with a tablespoon of the oil. Salt and heavily pepper the steak. When the oil in the wok is almost to smoke point, reduce the heat to medium high and carefully add your steak.
- For medium rare, cook about 3 minutes per side or I usually flip it once it is getting nicely browned and crusty looking. Flip it and cook another 3-4 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside to rest while you cook the veggies.
- In the same pan, add another tablespoon oil and then add the broccoli, sauté about 5 minutes, then add the bell pepper and onion, sauté another 2 minutes and then add the peas and mushrooms, sauté another 2 minutes. The broccoli should be soft and cooked but still have a nice crunch to it. Remove from heat. If you prefer it more cooked, by all means, go for it.
- Next make the sauce. In a small sauce pan combine the soy sauce, vinegar and honey. Heat over medium until it is hot and slightly bubbling.
- In a small dish combine the cornstarch with a little water to make a sort of paste and then dump it into the soy mixture. Stir until thick and bubbly, remove from heat.
- Next go back to your steak and slice it into nice thin slices.
- To serve, place rice in a bowl and top with veggies, meat and a little sauce - you don't need much - just enough to coat everything. Or more if you like it... ;b
