Welcome!!

stir fry cooking

Welcome back – it’s been a long time but don’t fret.  Pictures, ideas, and recipes are coming back.

Here is what I’m chewing for dinner tonight.  Beef stir fry!

I started out with lean flank steak cut into strips, red,yellow, orange peppers,onions, and snow peas.

I then put the beef in a hot pan and cooked until browned about 5-7 minutes.  Then drained any liquid and added the veggies.  Cook until vegetables are crisp tender.

I wanted to add a sauce so mixed up some soy sauce, beef broth, sesame oil and almond butter.  Almond butter??  Yes!  I wanted to thicken the sauce but did not want to add flour.  I thought the almond butter would do the trick and add a nice “nutty” flavor – and I was right!  Next time you want to thicken a sauce but don’t want the carbs add some nut butter (almond, pecan, cashew, peanut, etc).  You will love the flavor.

Whatcha chewing today?
