I found this in an old church-fundraising cookbook. It was so easy, I tried it with chicken in place of the beef. Great for social dinners - get it started before company comes. You can keep it warm for quite awhile if you get to talking!
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 lb beef
- 1 onion
- 1 cup celery
- 1 cup broth
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar
- Cut beef into thin slices.
- In a large pot, saute minced garlic, meat, chopped onions, and celery until meat is brown.
- Add broth, peanut butter, soy sauce, sugar. Bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat, simmer until meat is tender.
- Serve over rice, pasta or potatoes.
I used sirloin steak, and simmered for about 20 minutes after browning the beef. My celery had gone bad, so I added a can of sliced water chesnuts instead for a little crunch. I served this over rice. We enjoyed this.
I also substituted chicken for beef. I'm not a huge fan of cooked celery so substituted chopped green pepper for half the celery. Served over rice, it was very very good. The peanut butter and soy sauce flavors meshed well.
