Steak with Vegetables

Instead of heading to the nearest Chinese take-out and grabbing another order of greasy and fried foods, here is a twist on a favorite that can be easily prepared at home. It emphasizes the use of fresh and prime ingredients. Great for a quick after work meal or a Friday night dinner at home. Frozen cut vegetables can also be used to reduce the preparation time.

1 rib-eye steak, cut into small strips
1 cup julienne red and green peppers
½ cup julienne yellow onion
½ cup thinly sliced carrots
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp low salt soy sauce
1 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp fermented black beans
4 cloves of garlic, sliced
¼ cup water
salt to taste

Begin by adding a couple of pinches of salt and the olive oil to a 10 inch skillet over medium heat. Swirl the skillet to evenly distribute the oil around the bottom. When the oil starts to smoke, add the sliced steak, and stir-fry a few minutes until the strips start to lose their red color, but not cooked through. Add the vegetables and continue to stir-fry a few more minutes, thoroughly mixing all of the ingredients. Add the soy sauce, oyster sauce, fermented black beans, and water; mix thoroughly. Bring the sauce to a boil and cover. Continue cooking over medium-low heat for 5 minutes or until the vegetables reached their desired tenderness. If necessary, add more water to increase the sauce volume.

Serve over rice. Enjoy!
