Its Wednesday again, this week has been a bit of a ‘mare’ and Hubby has been working like a madman, so we need a treat.
We are using Market Porter gorgeous flat iron steak, and the rest of the ingredients are Aldi, so no weird and wonderful ingredients that you can only buy from an isolated monk in the outer reaches of Mars…. on a Wednesday afternoon 😉
I found a recipe that sounds really tasty – Mongolian Beef here’s link to the recipe Click here
I start by making the sauce, heat 2 tsp of vegetable oil in a pan over med/low heat.
Add a grated thumb size piece of ginger and a finely chopped fat clove of garlic to the pan and gently fry then add 75ml soy sauce and 100ml water before the garlic burns.
I adore my little grater plate, it’s designed to grate garlic and ginger and is amazing, we picked it up at the Ideal Home Show, and am so glad we did, it cleans in seconds too.
Dissolve the 50g brown sugar in the sauce, then raise the heat to about medium and boil the sauce for 2-3 minutes until the sauce thickens. Turn off the heat, and set aside.
Slice the steak into 1/4″ thick bite-size slices, dip the steak pieces into the corn flour, I do this by putting the sliced steak into a freezer bag and ‘shaking’ in the corn flour leave for about 10 minutes so that the corn flour sticks.
As the beef sits, heat up 200ml Veg oil in a frying pan, heat to medium, then add the beef to the oil and stir fry till the steak is getting browned. It doesn’t need to be cooked through fully, as it will finish in the sauce.
After a couple minutes, remove the steak from the pan, using a stottled spoon and set aside – dispose of any excess oil.
Then gently heat the pan and put the steak back in, add the sauce, cook for one minute while stirring, then add all the green onions, and cook for a further minute or so.
I bought some new micro rice and grain packs from Aldi, just out of curiousity – top with the steak – this tastes SO good 😊
