INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • 1
    lb beef, cut into stir-fry sized strips (not hamburger meat, obviously)
  • 1 -6
    garlic clove, minced
  • salt and pepper
  • 2
    tablespoons olive oil (approx- enough to coat the bottom of a pan)
  • 1
    medium onion, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1
    teaspoon paprika (or more)
  • 1
    (16 ounce) can chickpeas
  • 1
    teaspoon cornstarch (I used quite a bit more to make a sauce out of it)
  • 1
    tablespoon water (keep in ratio to cornstarch- i.e. if 3 teaspoons of cornstarch, then 3 tablespoons of water)

DIRECTIONS

  • Sprinkle the beef with the garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix until the meat is coated.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet or frying pan and sauté the meat over high heat for about 3 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium, add the onion, paprika, chickpeas (with their liquid), and bay leaf. Stir to blend.
  • In a small bowl, add the 1 tablespoon water to the 1 teaspoon cornstarch.
  • Add the water-cornstarch mixture to the pan, and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 30 minutes more.
  • As it simmers, add the extra cornstarch-water mixture for the sauce, and garlic powder, if it still isn't garlicky enough for you.
  • Serve as is or over rice.
