Beef Stir Fry

This beef stir- fry recipe is quite good. The recipe is from Chatelaine Magazine. Their recipes are usually good so this is what we had for dinner last Night. It was very fast to make so perfect when you don’t want to spend a lot of time preparing dinner

I made one change to this recipe, it calls for sherry in the sauce. I did not have any so I used orange juice instead. It was

I don’t usually make a very good stir-fry but when I follow a recipe it turns out! I always think that I can ‘wing it’ but somehow it doesn’t work!

I will share this recipe with you from Chatelaine Magazine…. the way I made it without the sherry…

2 Portobello mushrooms

2 yellow peppers

1/3 cup soy sauce

  6. Using a large frying pan or wok… Heat some vegetable oil & add the meat…stir fry the meat until it is cooked…remove from the pan & set aside
  7. Add more oil to the pan & add the cut up broccoli, mushrooms & yellow peppers. cook teh vegetables until they are tender crisp….

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
