I LOVE a GOOD STIR FRY DISH!!! I remember when back in college ….I used to go to this restaurant for LUNCH every week and I would ORDER this stir fry that they had there…some days I would switch it up with the different proteins ..like vegetables with chicken thighs or shrimp…and have it over Jasmine rice or these egg noodles. But EVERY WEEK ….I would eat there at least 3 times and its always some sort of STIR FRY dish. The restaurant is no LONGER there 🙁
This is my version of STIR FRY and ever since I DISCOVER this HOISIN GARLIC bottle from Trader Joe’s…it makes it even BETTER!!! If you have a Trader Joes in your area…you need to grab a bottle and TRY!!! It goes great with chicken too!!!
3 lbs filet mignon (steak of your choice)
2 small yellow squash (cut up into small pieces)
1 red bell pepper (sliced into small pieces)
2 cup broccoli floret
1 medium sliced red onion
1 cup sugar snap peas
5 stalk asparagus (cut into 2inch piece)
2 tablespoon HOISIN GARLIC (Trader Joes)
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 CUP water
1 teaspoon corn starch
***1 teaspoon sriracha (optional)
In a small BOWL …let make the SAUCE –add in the hoisin garlic, oyster sauce, brown sugar, soy sauce, black pepper, garlic powder, and sriracha. Mix really well..then set aside.
Mix the cornstarch with water and mix…set aside (this helps to thicken the sauce).
CUT the steaks into 1 inch slices …then in a WOK or nonstick pan…add some oil to the pan and toss the SLICED steak with some MINCED GARLIC and sliced RED ONION. Give it a few toss until the steak is like a medium RARE but BROWN on the outside…about 5-7 minutes. .Next, add in ALL THE SAUCE. Then toss in all the veggies. Last, add in the CORNSTARCH WATER mixture. Toss and SERVE!! We just ate it with Jasmine RICE!! My kids LOVE the SAUCE over WHITE RICE 😉
***** If you taste it and its NOT salty enough…add more soy sauce. If its too too salty for your taste…add some more WATER. You can USE any vegetables you like!! Stir FRY is a great way to incorporate LOTS of vegetables into a dish.
