I prepared a stir fry with sirloin strips and peppers for dinner on Thursday night. I marinated strips of sirloin steak which I served with brown rice and a pineapple fruit salad. The recipe serves 4 and has approximately 550 calories per serving. I don't prepare steak very often, but we do enjoy it as a special treat. It helps to keep it healthy by trimming the excess fat and serving it with plenty of fresh vegetables. Enjoy!
Stir Fry Steak and Peppers
1 pound sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
1/2 cup soy sauce (I used a low sodium variety)
2 Tablespoons honey
1 Tablespoon Sherry
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon clove garlic
1 large onion, sliced into thin strips
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
2 cups mushrooms
1 TBS. olive oil to stir fry beef
1 tsp. olive oil to stir fry vegetables
Cooked brown rice
Cut the sirloin steak into thin strips and trim the excess fat.
In a seperate bowl mix together soy sauce, honey, sherry, ginger, red pepper flakes, and the clove garlic. Pour over beef stirring to combine and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
While steak is marinating slice the mushrooms, onions, and peppers into thin strips.
Heat 1 Tablespoon olive oil to medium in a skillet. Add beef slices and stir fry until just cooked through.
While beef is cooking, heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a skillet to stir fry the peppers and onions. I heated them seperately until they are just crisp. I wanted to make sure not to overcook the vegetables so that they retain their nutrients.
Add vegetable mixture to beef mixture and stir fry for 1-2 minutes to allow the seasonings and flavors to blend.
Serve immediately with cooked brown rice. I served this dish with a pineapple fruit salad which I will share in a later blog entry. There are approximately 550 calories for the steak, vegetables, and brown rice.
