I love cooking and knowing exactly what’s in my food. But like most people I do work a full time job. So there are days where I just can’t be bothered spending to much time in the kitchen. So on days like that a quick stir fry served with some rice is always a winner for me.
For the marinade
250 grams, Sliced beef
1, Sliced red onion
1 Tablespoons, soy sauce
1 Tablespoons, sugar
3, Cloves of garlic diced
1 Tablespoon, chilli paste
½ Tablespoon Black Pepper
A few drops of sesame oil
1 Tablespoon cooking oil
1, large chayote peeled and thinly sliced
1 Tablespoon, soy sauce
2 Tablespoons, water
Cracked pepper to taste
Lets get cooking hey? Lets
Step 1. Add all your marinade ingredients into a bowl and mix to coat all the beef well.
Cover and set aside for at least 20 minutes.
Step 2. Heat your wok on high to it gets really hot and add the cooking oil. Add your beef and stir fry for 2 minutes just to seal the meat. Remove from the wok and set aside.
(For best results do this in 2 small batches)
Step 3. Add your chayote and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
Step 4. Add the water and cover the wok with a lid, this will allow the chayote to steam. Leave for 1 to 2 minutes.
Step 5. Remove the lid and give everything a quick toss. Now add back your meat and stir-fry for another 2 minutes
Step 6. Transfer to a serving dish and crack some black pepper over the top.
How easy was that!
