I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Bell Pepper Beef Stir-Fry

 After a short marinating time it's a quick stir-fry from skillet to table.

1 lb sirloin or beef tenderloin, cut in 1 1/2" cubes
1 1/2 tbsps vegetable oil
1/8 tsp baking soda
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp cornstarch
2 cups chopped greens (spinach, arugula, kale)
1 small onion, sliced
1 or 2 sweet bell peppers, sliced (I used yellow here)
2 tbsps vegetable oil

1/4 cup water
1 tsp ketchup
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
2 tsps soya sauce
1 tsp hoisin
1/4 tsp sesame oil
salt and pepper to taste

1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp water

Mix 1 1/2 tbsps vegetable oil, baking soda, garlic and cornstarch together. Toss the beef to coat, refrigerate and marinate 2 hours. 
When ready to cook heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil in a large skillet to high and sear the beef on each side about 1 minute. Move the meat to the sides of the pan, add another 1 tbsp vegetable oil and the onion and bell pepper. Stir fry 2-3 minutes then toss in your choice of greens.

Mix the sauce ingredients together up to but not including the cornstarch and water. Make a well and pour the sauce in the center of the meat and vegetables. Then combine cornstarch and water and whisk into the sauce.

Cook to thicken, taste and adjust salt and pepper if needed.

Serves 4
