I came up with this the other night when I had a lime in the fridge I had to use before it started looking like a prune and some beef that my husband had gotten out of the freezer that I didn't know what to do with.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs sirloin steaks, sliced very thin across the grain
- 1⁄3 cup garlic teriyaki sauce
- 1 lime, zest and juice
- 1 tablespoon hot catsup (or regular catsup and a couple good dashes tabasco)
- 2 -3 tablespoons tequila
- 3 -4 fresh mushrooms
- 3 tablespoons water
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 bunch green onion, sliced on the bias
- olive oil, for skillet or wok
- Combine the lime zest and juice, the teriaki sauce, the tequila and the catsup.
- Marinate beef in this mixture for 30-40 minutes at room temperature.
- Mix water and cornstarch to make a slurry; set aside.
- Heat olive oil practically to smoking in large skillet (cast iron is best, but we're not*all* that lucky).
- Add mushrooms and onions, stir fry until mushrooms and onions slightly soften.
- Remove from skillet.
- Add beef and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until cooked through, then add veggies back in, and add cornstarch mixture.
- Cook over medium-high heat until bubbly and thickened.
- Serve with noodles, rice, or just by itself.
