I Love take-out but not the price or the calories. Most of the time I can’t even find take-out with a meatless choice so I came up with my own by substituting a few items from a recipe I found at allrecipes.com My recipe can be made in as little as 30 minutes and you will even have leftovers for lunch!
What you will need
- 3 cups cooked rice
I like using a rice cooker because while the rice is cooking the I can concentrate on the beef strips.
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons rice wine
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 package of vegetarian beef strips (Trader Joe’s, Morningstar, etc)
- 2 or 3 carrots sliced.
In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, rice wine, brown sugar, and cornstarch, and set aside.
Heat the oil in a wok or skillet over medium heat.
Stir fry the garlic until golden, add the vegetarian Beef Strips and stir fry for 2 – 3 minutes.
Add the carrots and stir fry for 2-3 more minutes.
Add the soy sauce mixture and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Lower the heat and simmer until the sauce thickens.
Serve immediately over the steamed cooked rice.
Refrigerate leftovers and eat within a few days.
