Vegetarian Stir-Fried Beef Served Over Steamed Rice

8 Sep

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!

 

Vegetarian Asian Beef

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.
