Steak Stir Fry

Ohhhh! Steak infused with an Asian flair. My mouth is watering just thinking of it.


This recipe combines so many things I adore:  steak, garlic, noodles, soy. I might just start writing it love letters. . .

1 tablespoon sugar

2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh ginger

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 cups sliced mushrooms

2 cups matchstick-size carrot sticks

1 cup green bell pepper strips

½ cup sliced green onions

4 cups fresh spinach leaves, washed and drained


1. Cut beef lengthwise in half, then crosswise into 1/4-inch strips. Set aside. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain well. Set aside.

2. While noodles are cooking, combine wine, soy sauce, cornstarch, sugar and ginger in medium bowl; whisk to blend. Add beef strips; toss to coat well. Set aside.
