Agne’s Beef Stir Fry

Let me tell you this – I am a funny one…

I love cooking BUT I need to feel what I want that day or week. I cannot even explain it but I can’t just have ‘something’… I usually sit down and plan my meals for the whole week when possible. It makes my life so much easier when I do that. I set all my cooking books and get myself ready.ย  But when I do that it’s a real creation process ๐Ÿ™‚ I flick through my cooking books gathering my inspiration.IMG_9457.JPG

I have so many week plans lying around the house and when I set myself to sit down and plan the new week, my husband usually looks at me puzzled and says: ‘well why don’t you simply use one of the meal plans from the previous week? Or the week before?’

He doesn’t get it… I don’t know if anyone does ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t feel like having what I planned for the previous weeks… I want to sit down and let the recipes come to my head. THEN I feel like I am prepared. Then I know what I want ๐Ÿ™‚

Secondly, it’s not easy for me to sit down and recreate the recipes. Because they are hardly ever the same. I never follow the recipe precisely. It’s an ongoing joke around our house because I need to amend each and every recipe when I am cooking or baking. For various reasons ๐Ÿ™‚ Sometimes I don’t have one ingredient or feel like I need some chickpeas today, or feel that it should cook a bit longer etc. I don’t panic when I don’t have few ingredients from the original recipe because I know anything (well, almost) can be replaced.

So this is my first recipe on my website that I recently cooked and I hope you’ll like.

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large wok or frying pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Season steak strips with salt and pepper. Then put to the heated wok and cook steak strips while stirring until browned, approximately 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Remove steak to the bowl. Heat some oil in the same wok and add broccoli, red pepper, carrots, spring onion and garlic. Cook and stir vegetables for 5 minutes or until it’s tender to your liking.
  4. Stir beef into vegetables and season with soy sauce and sesame seeds. Continue to cook and stir until vegetables and beef are covered in soy sauce and sesame seeds – about 2 more minutes.
  5. Serve it with noodles, spaghetti or rice.

Lots of love,
