Steak Stir Fry

This is not a canning recipe, but thought I would post a few of my favorite recipes to share with all of you.  My hubby and I love Steak Stir Fry. 

Photos in this post are from various times I've made this.  If I don't have one ingredient, I may throw in something else.  That is what makes stir fry fun.  You can put whatever kind of veggies you like in it.

Ingredients you will need
Yields 3 to 4 large servings
1 pound more or less of stir fry beef or you can cut your own into strips.  Use a little more if you like a lot of meat.
1 large green pepper
1 large yellow, red or orange pepper
1 large onion
6 green onions
1 cup of beef broth made with water & 3 bouillon cubes
(If you want to wait use a little more water in your meat and then use it to make your broth)
If you make and can your own beef broth, it works great
1/2 cup of soy sauce
1/2 cup of water
2 tbsp of corn starch
1/4 cup of olive oil or canola oil
1 clove of minced garlic
1/2 tsp of ginger
Fresh ground black pepper
1 tbsp garlic salt
Precooked warm rice (I love my rice cooker for this)

1:  If you have a rice cooker go ahead and put your rice on to cook first.  I cook 3 measures of rice in my cooker.  That's roughly about 1 1/2 cups of uncooked rice.
2:  Put your steak in a pressure cooker and add garlic salt. Pour about 1 1/2 cups of water over this and pressure cook for 15 to 20 minutes.
3:  While the rice and steak are cooking get everything else ready.
4:  In a bowl mix your beef broth, water, soy sauce and corn starch.  If you like less gravy in your stir fry you can make only 1/2 the broth mixture.  Set this aside to use later. 
5:  Cut your pepper into strips and slice your onion into slices. 

6:  Cut your green onions into pieces like this..

7:  In a large skillet or wok put 1/4 cup olive oil or canola oil.  Heat until hot.  Add your garlic, ginger and fresh black pepper and stir for a minute or two.

8:  Add your peppers and sliced onions to the skillet and stir fry for about 5 minutes or until fairly tender. 

9:  Add your pre-cooked steak, green onions and broth mixture.  Stir fry for a few minutes until the broth starts to thicken. 
This batch I made more broth than usual.  You can use as much or as little as suits you.

  Serve over hot white rice.
