Kelly @ JAX Does Design is hosting a Bake-n-Blog: Holiday Edition I've never been a part of something like this before as I'm still pretty "fresh" to the Blogging Community so I am totally excited to be participating and am looking forward to the Big Blog on Dec 1. I'm in for "Pummies" from Cindy @ Bandaids Required which are a pumpkin based cookie that you can make with one of three variations. Personally, I just can't get enough pumpkin! Check out Kelly's Blog for all the details and to join in the fun!
Tonight's meal was "kitchen sink" beef stirfry - it really has everything in it. It's a meal that has no recipe per say and one that both my husband and I have been tweaking and perfecting since we moved in together 12 years ago. We both have our own spin on it, my usual rendition is Beef, Matchstick Carrots, Sugar Snap Peas, Julienned Zucchini, Sliced Mushrooms, Sliced Red Bell Pepper in a blend of sauces including:Terriyaki Sauce, Fish Sauce, Hoisin Sauce, Szechuan Sauce, Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce, Soy Sauce, Rice Vinegar, Liquid Honey, then add Garlic, Black Pepper, and Chinese 5 Spice. You marinate the meat in the sauce for a couple hours. Put veggies in a hot wok with vegetable oil. Stir quickly for about 3 minutes, then add about 1 TBS of water and cover with lid. Steam for 2 minutes, then scoop a "well" in the middle of the veggies and pour in meat and sauce. Continue to stir and fry until meat is medium rare. Serve over hot cooked rice or noodles and top with chopped green onions. SO flavourful and colourful!
It has always been a staple in our home and it has been fun experimenting with different combinations of sauces and veggies over the years- give it a try and see what you come up with!
