This delicious beef stir-fry dish is everything I was hoping it would be! You get great flavor from the peanuts, soy sauce, fish sauce and lime juice, and a nice kick from the chiles.

Here’s another great take-out favorite that can be whipped up in a flash: thin slices of beef with crisp-tender green beans, crunchy water chesnuts and a garlic and ginger flavored sauce. It’s delicious! Don’t let the oyster sauce frighten you. It doesn’t smell fishy or taste anything like oysters…it just forms the base of the sauce along with the […]

I used 50% Less Salt Roasted & Salted Cashew Pieces from Trader Joe’s, which meant I didn’t need to chop any cashews and they were less expensive […]

Beef with Ginger and Caramelized Onions

March 21, 2009 by andrea | Comments Off on Beef with Ginger and Caramelized Onions | Filed in Asian, Beef, Main Dish, Quick Cooking, Recipes

  This dish is super tasty, super quick and super easy. The caramelized onions add a nice richness to the stir-fry, and the grated ginger gives the sauce a bright, fresh taste without overpowering it. Chilling the beef in the freezer for 20-30 minutes makes it easier to slice it into thin strips.  I used a few rib-eye […]
