Food Stuf: Beef stir-fry

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes

I stuck to my meal plan on Wednesday and made the beef stir-fry. Jef hates the term "stir-fry" as he says we are not actually frying anything, so in my household I call it "stir-cook".

200g sliced beef (I used rump this time around)
1 sliced onion
1 carrot
1 or 2 cloves chopped garlic
1 bunch silverbeet
2 courgettes
1 T cooking oil
A few dashes of fish sauce
A dash of soya sauce

I chopped the carrot up into thin sticks, sliced the courgettes diagonally ('cause that's how my dad always does it) and put them into boiling water to poach for a bit.

Heat the oil in a large frypan or wok, throw in the garlic and sliced onion, toss a few seconds to get some caramelisation happening. Then in goes the beef and pepper and toss until still pink. Remove from pan.

Put a bit more cooking oil into the pan and throw in the drained poached vegetables. Stir until they get a bit of colour, then in goes the silverbeet, stirring and allowing to wilt. When all vegetables are at the perfect consistency for you add the beef back into the pan and stir through. Season with fish sauce and soya sauce.

Kien loves the sauce, and will eat the beef, carrots and courgettes mixed with sauce and rice.
