Beef and Cabbage Stir-Fry with Peanut Sauce

By Ira,

This is a tasty stir-fry that comes together very easily.

Serves 4 – Adapted from Eating Well

Marinade

  • 3/4 pound sirloin steak, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sriracha or hot sauce

Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sriracha or hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

Stir-fry:

  • 4 teaspoons coconut oil or canola oil (divided 2 and 2)
  • 1 10 ounce bag shredded green cabbage or 1/2 head of a cabbage, shredded
  • 2 medium carrots, cut into matchstick pieces
  • 1 red pepper, cut into matchstick pieces
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, cut fine
  • 1 cup Brown or white rice

Note: if you put the meat in the freezer for half an hour, it will be easy to slice it thinly. You can also increase the amount of beef to 1 pound.

Start by cooking the rice according to package directions.

In a small bowl, mix together all the marinade ingredients and set aside. You can marinade the beef up to 1 hour in advance, but even 10 minutes is enough.

In another small bowl, mix together all the sauce ingredients and set aside.

In a wok or large non-stick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium-high heat, add the meat, discard the marinade, and stir-fry until the meat is cooked. Transfer it to a plate, cover it with foil, and set aside.

In the same wok or skillet, add 2 teaspoons of the oil, over medium-high heat. Add the onion and carrots and stir-fry for 2 minutes.

Add the red pepper and stir-fry for 1 minute.

Add the cabbage and garlic, and stir-fry for 2 minutes.

Add the meat to the cabbage mixture,

followed by the sauce (mix it once more before adding it in). Serve it with the rice.
