Buona gobba!! (Happy Hump!)  We’re half way through the week.

Looking for an easy, quick dinner to make tonight?  Last night, I was in the mood for Asian food.  Asian food is something that we typically neither make at home nor eat out, so once in a while we get a craving for something… salty.

Here’s what you’ll need:

-1 pound of beef tips (I recommend staying away from “stew meat” because although it’s cut smaller, the quality is definitely not as good)

-1 cup broccoli, chopped

-1 cup sliced carrots

-1 “handful” of snow peas (you can use as much or as little of these as you wish)

-2 tablespoons of Teriyaki sauce

-Dash of Soy Sauce

-2 teaspoons Montreal steak seasoning (Note: it can be very salty so be careful to to add too much)

-2 tablespoon of olive oil (may need more depending on how many veggies are in the pan)

-Dash of crushed red pepper

Directions:

Wash and thoroughly dry your meat.  It’s important to dry the meat, so don’t skip this step.  In a bowl, mix together the meat, teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, and Montreal seasoning.  Make sure all the steak is covered evenly.

In a large non-stick frying pan, heat up your olive oil and add in the broccoli, carrots, and snow peas.  Cook until tender, about 5-8 minutes.  I like to make my veggies slightly brown in color.

Once they are cooked, take them out of the pan and place in a dish to your side.

Then, add in the beef and whatever leftover juice is in the  bowl.  Depending how thick your tips are, they will only need 2-4 minutes to cook.  Don’t over-cook your beef tips!  They should be tender & thoroughly brown in color.  If you press down on them and they are brown, but still soft, they are probably done.  You don’t want them to be too tough.

Lastly, add the veggies back into the pan with the rest of the beef.  Stir the veggies and beef together.  Done!

Mangia!
