I made this recipe a few weeks ago. Another one of those times when the meal plan had to be modified a bit due to schedule changes.
That's life, right?
I had a round steak that needed to be used, and used fast. I cannot handle food spoiling in my fridge or freezer. It makes me go absolutely batty. Especially after reading an article that the average family loses over $1500 in a year because of spoiled food.
(that is a LOT of money!)
So I made a quick stir fry from the some veggies that hadn't been used. And it was good! I even got an amazing compliment from the hubs!
Super Delicious, Last Minute, Leftover Stir Fry
What you need:
1 round steak
1 cup beef stock
2 or 3 shakes crushed red pepper flakes
6 tbsp. rice vinegar
3 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
5 tbsp. tamari sauce (or soy sauce)
3 tbsp. sriracha
an assortment of veggies (frozen, or fresh)
What you do:
First, pour half of the beef stock into a Ziploc bag, along with 2 tablespoons of the rice vinegar, 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce, 2 tbsp. tamari (or soy) sauce, 1 tablespoon sriracha, and 2 shakes of the red pepper flakes. Close and shake the bag to combine all of the ingredients. Put the steak into the bag, seal, and place in the refrigerator for a few hours.
After the steak has soaked up some of the lovely flavors (okay, you really should let it marinate for 6 hours (or over night) but this is called "Last Minute" for a reason), sear the it over medium high heat in a pan of hot coconut oil. Leave the steak to cook on each side for about 5 minutes. While the steak is in the pan, grind some salt and pepper on each side. Feel free to add some red pepper flakes at this time, as well.
Remove the steak to a cutting board, and allow it to rest. In the meantime, melt 3 tablespoons of butter in your pan. Add your assortment of vegetables. I added frozen broccoli, frozen peas, fresh sliced mushrooms, and fresh sliced carrots. Add some salt to taste, and about 2 teaspoons of garlic powder. Stir the vegetables occasionally. After the vegetables have cooked for a few minutes, add the remaining sauce ingredients (rice vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, tamari sauce, sriracha). Stir it all around, and taste. If needed, add some more garlic and/or salt. You could even add more sriracha (we like our food on the hot end of things).
That's it. Super simple. Serve over cauliflower rice, white rice, or fried rice.
