I tried a stir fried beef recipe that turned out bland & boring. So I improvised, and this is the result. My husband requests it nearly every week and loves taking the leftovers for lunch. Note: rice is not included in prep/cook time
- 2 cups brown rice
- 1 lb sirloin steak
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1⁄2 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon red wine vinegar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon fresh coarse ground black pepper
- 1 onion, sliced (I prefer cippollini)
- 1 tomatoes, diced
- Cook rice fully before starting meat.
- Fill large saucepan with 4 c water & 2 c brown rice. Bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover, & simmer 50 minutes. Set aside.
- Trim fat from steak and cut into small, thin pieces.
- In a large skillet, heat oil and sauté garlic until garlic is golden.
- Add steak, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Cook for 6 minutes, stirring beef until brown.
- Add onion and tomato. Cook until onion is transparent. Stir in rice until well mixed.
- Note: My husband hates onions, but loves the flavor they do give this dish. To appease him, I cook with the onions & remove them prior to adding the rice.
Fixed this for BF's supper and he was to busy eating to say anything. I'm taking a cue that it must have been really good because he ate every last bite. Thanks for posting this quick, easy and tasty recipe Mims. I served this with a side of Kasha and Cremini Mushrooms #197768, a wonderful combination.
OMG! This has so much more flavor than I thought it would. I couldn't find cippolini onions, so I used yellow, but it wqas still fantastic. Even with the tomato & onion, it was a real hit with my meat & potatoes man!
