DIRECTIONS

  • Mix together the ingredients for the marinade and marinate the beef strips for at least 20 minutes, flipping halfway through. I usually marinate for 1 hour, flipping after a half hour.
  • When the beef is done marinating, cook the pasta in a large pot of lightly salted boiling water according to the instructions on the package, drain, set aside, and keep warm.
  • Steam the carrot, potatoes, and green beans for about 6 minutes or until tender.
  • Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok or large frying pan over Medium-High heat and stir-fry the beef for 3 minutes. Take out the beef and set aside.
  • In the same pan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and saute the garlic and onion for 3 minutes.
  • Add the red pepper to the onion and cook for 2 minutes. Add to beef/veggie mixture.
  • Cut the potatoes into slices, and add these together with the carrot, green beans, and beef and season with some salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Mix together the ingredients for the sauce.
  • Stir the sauce and cooked pasta into the veggie/beef/onion mixture and cook for 2 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly.
