Yes.  We are not perfect when it comes to not eating meat.  Every now and again, we all enjoy some good organic grass-fed beef!  My wonderful husband brought this recipe home, and, it looked great!  So, we gave it a whirl last night.  And, we’re sure glad we did…we can now add this to our “favorite” list…

I doubled the recipe…here it is, doubled…

1 lb. of flank stank, organic.  Yes.  It is more expensive.  but, justify it this way.  the cost/person is less expensive than in a restaurant.  Plus!  Most importantly,  it’s good for you!

DireksheeONS!…Eeeeezee and FAST!  *Tips: Put your wok/deep skillet on the stove earlier rather than later.  Turn on the heat to high.  It takes about 10 minutes to get it the temperature you want.  So, don’t wait until you have everything prepped…(waste of time)…

  1. Add the marinade ingredients to the beef, stirring to combine.  Let stand while you are preparing other ingredients (at least 10 minutes)
  2. Lightly beat the eggs with the salt.
  3. Heat 2 tbl. oil in a preheated wok/deep skillet on high heat.  When the oil is hot, add the minced garlic.  Stir-fry for a few seconds until you smell its awesome aroma.  Then, add the onion.  Stir-fry for 1-2 minutes, until it starts to brown and soften.  Add the beef and let brown briefly, then stir-fry until it changes color.
  4. Heat 2-4 tbl. oil in the wok/skillet.  Reduce the heat to medium.  Add the rice, stirring and turning it over with a spatula to heat through and break up any clumps.
  5. Add the peas and shredded carrot, stirring to combine.
  6. Make a room in one corner of the wok and pour in the beaten egg.  Scramble the egg and then combine with the fried rice.  Stir in the chopped green onion.  Do a taste test and add a bit more salt and pepper, if desired.  Serve hot.

Hope you try it.  I think you’ll be glad you did!

Love,

Lisa
