Gluten-Free Beef Stir Fry
I'm back! It would appear that they have ironed out the issues that were occurring that left me unable to access Dianne's Dishes Tuesday afternoon and the better part of yesterday...Now watch, I probably just went and jinxed myself! ;oP
Anyway, let's get started with some food shall we?
The other day when I made the Vegetable Stir Fry for me, I also made a Gluten-Free Beef Stir Fry for Jamison. You marinate it much the same way, but the "sauce" is much more simple than that of the Vegetable Stir Fry. The result is a tender, slightly sweet/carmalized and slightly salty dish that really hits the spot. Unlike Jamison you can throw in some steamed broccoli or a few sautéd vegetables and really round out the dish. Pair the stir fry with some brown rice and you've got a lovely, healthy meal that you can throw together in the morning or the night before, put in the fridge and then quickly cook in the evening. What's better than that?
What You'll Need:
1 tablespoon of sesame oil
1/4 cup of gluten-free soy sauce
1/4 cup of rice vinegar
1 scallion, chopped (green and white section)
1 clove of garlic, chopped fine
1 pound of steak, cut into cubes and all visible fat trimmed
1 cup of cooked brown rice per person (Note: Remember that most brown rice takes about 50 minutes to an hour to cook. The stir fry itself takes about 20-30 minutes.)
In a bowl or a canning jar mix together sesame oil, gluten-free soy sauce and rice vinegar until incorporated. Stir or shake in scallions and garlic to mix. Add steak and toss or shake to coat. Marinate for at least 1 hour to overnight covered tightly in the fridge.
Dump the contents of your bowl or jar into a large skillet and over medium heat bring to a boil. Cook the beef until the liquid evaporates, the mixture thickens slightly and the beef is tender:
Serve with rice and/or steamed or sautéd vegetables.
Notes: You could do this with chicken or sea food as well.

What I find most disappointing about this dish, I can eat like 10 things now without getting ill and I get punished by taking away my one single vice that I can still eat(white rice) and being forced to eat the terrible tasting brown rice. At some point have I not suffered enough?

You aren't being punished, it's just better for you. :o)

Jamison, that was way too funny! I think you should meet Tony. Dianne, I can't get over the velvety, glossy sheen of the meat. It looks so delicious.
