3 Boys Deep and an Awesome Dinner...All In A Days Work
So back to me being impressed with myself. The kicker of today, I managed to be productive. While the little boys slept and O played nicely and quietly (such a good boy), I was able to get some MOMs Club and Jamberry work done. But wait, there's more! I even pulled off an awesome dinner.
Pepper Steak with Quinoa and Brown Rice. Adapted from GroeryBudget101.com's recipe.
1 lb. of flank steak, sliced into thin strips
2 TBS olive oil
Sliced peppers (I used red, yellow, orange and green)
Onion sliced (I did not have on hand, so I didn't use)
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 TBS cornstarch
1 can (14.5 oz) can of low sodium beef broth (I didn't have on hand, so I used deef bouillon cubes and water)
2 TBS lite soy sauce
hot rice (I used quinoa and brown rice with garlic made by Seeds of Change (my new favorite)
pepper to taste (I didn't add any pepper)
Begin by heating oil in large skillet over medium heat.
Cook steak strip until slightly pink.
While steak is cooking, in a separate bowl, mix beef broth, cornstarch and soy sauce. Mix well and set aside.
Add peppers and onions to your steak and cook for another 2-3 minutes or until peppers and onions are to you liking. Be careful not to overcook your steak. If you like your peppers and onion soft, I recommend adding them to the oil when you add your steak and cooking them together.
Next, add minced garlic and broth mix. Bring to a boil and let cook for about 2 minutes while string to let sauce thicken.
Serve over rice or with baked potato. We had with the quinoa and brown rice and corn on the cob.
Pretty simple recipe. Fairly healthy. I would have added broccoli if I had that on hand. The best part is all the flavor this recipe packs. So delicious. Not too bad for my first day on the job with 3 little boys.
