Balsamic Beef

July 2, 2014

So I spent the vast majority of my morning and early afternoon at the dentist getting an emergency root canal. Let me tell you, you haven’t lived until you’ve heard that the inside of your tooth is “necrotic” even though it looks perfectly fine from the outside. It would explain the steadily increasing pain in my jaw the past few days though! On the bright side, I got to watch Jaws while the dentist worked AND he gave me some nifty painkillers. At least I’ll sleep tonight.

Anyway, needless to say I was not really up for cooking anything that required a whole lot of effort this evening so I threw together a few things that somehow turned into a delicious meal.

Ingredients (serves 2 hungry people)

  • 1 cup uncooked red rice (you will have leftover rice)
  • 2 cups no sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 package fast fry beef strips
  • Balsamic Coleslaw
  • Raw Honey
  • Whole grain mustard
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Garlic powder

Cook rice with veggie broth and water as per usual.

Meanwhile, add the last five ingredients into a bowl and adjust levels to your personal taste. Once well mixed, add the beef strips and stir to cover. Let the strips marinate for at least an hour.  When they’re ready, throw them into a pan on medium heat and cook for just a couple of minutes. Strips should still be red when you remove them from the heat.

Drain off the majority of the excess fat, leaving just enough to coat the bottom of the pain. Put a bunch of coleslaw into the pan (I used about 3/4 of the leftovers from yesterday) and cook down for about ten minutes. Add the strips back in and cook for another couple of minutes.

Place rice on your plate then add the beef and veggie mixture on top. I used a half cup serving for myself and a full cup for Ian then split the beef and veggie mixture between the two of us.  BOOM. Dinner in as long as it takes your rice to cook.

Speaking of rice, any rice will work with this recipe.  I just like the red rice for the nutty flavour. Of course you could also skip the rice altogether and go with quinoa or anything else that floats your boat.  Yum!
