This Sirloin with Broccoli and Carrots dinner is so delicious and so easy to make. The key is to think ahead in the morning, so you can move the frozen sirloin from the freezer to the refrigerator, then it will be just right for slicing very thin just before dinnertime. That way I never have to slice squishy meat, for who likes to do that!
1.5 pounds of beef sirloin, sliced in very thin strips
Fresh broccoli, cut into chunks
Fresh carrots, cut into 1/8 inch slices
Celery, cut in 1/3 inch chunks
Fresh mushrooms, sliced
Garlic, 1 clove, minced
Onion, 1, sliced
Red peppers (bell), diced
Coarse-ground black pepper
Lightly salted Planters Peanuts (other brands have so many additives and preservatives!)
Sauce: (Stir ingredients together)
1/2 c. Kitchen Basics (GF) Beef Broth
1 t. honey
1/4 c. burgandy
1+ T. corn starch
Steam sliced carrots and broccoli for a few minutes until the color is darker. You don't want them overcooked and squishy. Set aside.
Stirfry beef and garlic in olive oil until only slightly pink in the center. Remove to a plate.
In same skillet, stirfry celery, onion, and red peppers.
Add beef and garlic, carrots and broccoli back into the skillet. Add mushrooms.
Mix sauce and pour over contents of skillet. Cook on low until sauce is translucent.
Sprinkle with sea salt, black pepper, cayenne to taste. We like ours kinda hot.
Serve peanuts in a dish separately. You don't want to eat leftovers containing soggy peanuts!
Serve with brown or basmati rice. I'm trying to learn to simply sprinkle a little rice on top, rather than serving this stirfry over a bed or rice OR, better yet, to avoid the rice altogether. It's not like the vegetables don't have enough carbs. You can see I didn't manage to do that this time, however. :-(
Planters - lightly salted, dry roasted...YUM
And here's the final product:
It's delicious. Then all you need is a little piece of 88% dark chocolate for dessert (like Endangered Species' Black Panther!)
