Beef stir fry

beef stir fry

Now one good thing about this particular recipe is, you can sub the beef for something else that fits your taste buds, I realize not everyone likes meat or beef in particular, so use vegetables only or add some tofu, perhaps you like chicken — then use chicken instead and if you are feeling really fancy, you can have seafood instead of meat or utilize both at the same time (shrimp and beef, chicken and beef, lobster and shrimp, etc) so make this your own creation if you will. I chose this beef recipe because I have made beef stir-fry in the past (and I have also made other types as well) and it tasted wonderful; my ingredients may have differed from hers but still came out fantastic! I am a firm believer in experimenting in the kitchen, so go for it!

She makes note that one should NOT use light or dark soy sauce but instead ALL PURPOSE soy sauce. If you cannot purchase Chinese cooking wine, chicken broth can be used in place of, use good source of beef and cut against the grain.
