In our busy lives, we need assistance sometimes to make a good and tasty meal, while trying to get to a hockey practice or ballet class in a hurry. This would be one way to accomplish all that and be a hero.
- 1 lb. boneless top sirloin, sliced into thin strips
- 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
- 2 tbsp. sesame oil
- 1 tsp. hot chili flakes
- 4 cups mixed fresh vegetables (snow peas, sliced carrots, broccoli and/or cauliflower florets)
- 2 tbsp. cornstarch
- 1 1/2 cup beef broth
- 1/2 cup whole roasted cashews, coarsely chopped
Combine the meat, hoisin sauce and chili flakes in a medium bowl, mixing to coat.
Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the meat mixture. Cook, stirring often, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and reserve.
Add oil to the pan then the vegetables. Cook until just tender-crisp.
Stir cornstarch with the beef broth in a small bowl until completely dissolved. Add broth mixture and beef to the fry pan , cooking until the sauce thickens, about 2 minutes.
Stir in the cashews. Serve over rice.
This is a great ‘need fast dinner’ meal on a busy sports night. Enjoy!
