Week 26 Rachel Ray Sweet N Sour Sirloin Stir Fry with Ranch Mashed Potatoes and Sesame Slaw
Carl and I are really beginning to click. We are just working together very well putting the whole meal together. We both start picking things that need to be done first, and then we gravitate towards finishing an item. He is really fun to work with.
This meal turned out to be very good. The Slaw was a little boring, but the potatoes and stir fry were very good. Rachel Ray suggests putting the stir fry on the potatoes, which I did, and loved it. It would be good on rice as well. That is why I'm putting the recipe here:
1.5 pounds of sirloin put in the freezer before you cut it into thin strips against the grain. Maybe 1 to 3 inches long and 1/4 inch wide. Season the meat with salt and pepper. Put 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil in a pan and then stir fry the meat until browned. Add a sliced red and green bell pepper and cook for 2 more minutes. Add the bunch of cut up scallions and the soybeans (Edamame) and cook for 2 more minutes. Add the sauce which is 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, 3 tablespoons of soy sauce, 1/4 cup of ketchup, and 1/4 cup of mustard. Cook for another 2 minutes. Serve. It was easy and GOOD.
I loved this meal the beef was good the potatoes were great and the slaw was OK. The beef had edamame (soy beans) that was great and peppers that had that little crunch. The potatoes were great with a hint of hot sauce and herbs (dill, parsley, chive). The slaw wasn't great it was a sesame slaw that had a little flavor but not enough kick. Can't wait till next week.
