Time For Stir Fry.

I don't know what it is about the red meat around here lately, but it sucks.  Pure and simple.  Mr. Hawthorne doesn't like.  I don't like it.  And this has happened during the last few months.  We found what looked like a lovely sirloin filet the other day, decided to bring it home, cooked it nice and rare, and it was crap.  Tough, but there was flavor.  Not enough though.

I decided today to take the remaining half of this surly loin and marinate the hell out of it, then stir fry.  How can you go wrong?

I sliced the loin into very thin pieces and
threw in some minced garlic,
peeled orange slices,
some tamari sauce,
and a few pinches of sugar.
Let sit for at least 30 minutes.

Artfully arrange your stir fry ingredients.
Toasted peanuts

Heat a little peanut oil to hothothot
and add in vegetables.

After a minute of stir frying
slowly pour in a little water down the side
and let the vegetables steam.
Transfer to a bowl and cover.

Reheat with more peanut oil.

Remember to stir and fry.

Add in peanuts.

Vegetables go in, horizontally.

Pour in a cornstarch slurry -
1 TB cornstarch mixed with 2 TB water.

Add in a cup of beef broth.

Keep stir frying until broth thickens.
Serve over basmati rice.

Steam wafting off.

Love that orange flavor.
