How’s about tonight, I give you a super quick post for a super quick meal?
For anyway, my Internet connection is everything BUT super quick, you see… Speed test gives me 0.19Mbps! Yes, you read that one right. There is a ZERO and a point in front of that nineteen. Can you say turtle speed?
I don’t know what’s with it, but it’s driving me totally insane. Every picture takes like 5 minutes to load. Crazy.
I guess that’s why blogs didn’t really exist back in the good ole “dial-up” days.
So by the time I get to upload 2 or 3 pictures here, you could have this beautiful dish on your table. For really, there’s nothing to it.
All you need is a few strips of beef, and a few veggies…
You don’t even have to use the same veggies I did if you don’t have them in your fridge. Regular mushrooms could very well sub for the shiitake, and bell peppers could take the stand for the broccoli, or even sliced carrots, or Brussel sprouts, why not?
You could buy the meat already cut into strips, but it’ll just cost you a fortune for nothing. You know, I’m cheap when it comes to these things. I’d much rather pay less money for a whole roast or steak (or a whole cow, for that matter) and cut my own strips!
These were cut out of what we call here a French Roast, which is basically inside (or top) round, but you can use almost any cut you want, so long as you can cut it into strips. And no, I’m afraid ground beef wouldn’t work… Oh, and also, make sure that you use “grilling” meat, else you’ll end up with really tough strips of meat.
Minute steaks work wonders for this… just sayin’.
And I know. I really need to invest in a new wok. This stove-top-heating-device you see in the pictures hardly qualifies as “wok”. Luckily, I’ve got a brand new one on the way, so go easy on me, alright?
Once you have your beef strips ready, just prep your veggies and you’re as good as done.
Throw everything in the wok, blast the cauliflower for a few minutes in the microwave and voilà!
You’re ready to sit yourself down and enjoy dinner…
As for me, well, I’m probably still waiting for my pictures to load!
