I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Easy Asian Vegetable Beef Stir-Fry

Cut the meat and veggies ahead of time so that when suppertime rolls around it doesn't take much to get this dish ready for the table.

3 sirloin steaks, cut in strips
reserved accumulated juices
1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
2 tbsps. soya sauce
olive oil
pepper and ginger
1/2 Vidalia onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, slivered
3 fresh green beans, julienned
2 carrots, sliced
1/2 each red and green pepper
2 spears fresh pineapple, but in chunks
1 cup broccoli flowerets
1 tbsps. cornstarch

Mix sweet chili sauce and soya sauce and marinade the beef strips for 4-6 hours.

Heat olive oil in a wok or deep frying pan and add the beef . Sprinkle with ginger and pepper.  Stir-fry until no longer pink .  Remove from pan.  Reserve any juices (about 1/4 - 1/2 cup) and set aside.

Heat some olive oil in the pan and add  onion and garlic. Cook 2 minutes.

Now add the green beans and carrots.  If using raw broccoli add it now too. Add 1/4 cup water to the pan and cover, cook 3-4 minutes.
Next toss in the red and green pepper, as well as the pineapple.  If you have previously cooked broccoli (like I had) add it now along with the beef.  And cook 2-3 minutes longer.

Take 1 tbsp of cornstarch and whisk in 2 tbsps. of cold water.

Add this to the previously reserved pan juices.  Make a well in the center of the veg and meat in the pan and pour in the cornstarch mixture, whisk.  Stir together and  cook a further 2-3 minutes.  Dinner......ready in no time !
