Beef Sorta Stir Fry


One of our favorite take-out foods in Chinese Food.  Unfortunately, now that our bodies are no longer used to junk, Chinese take-out doesn’t love us.  I have been trying to recreate things, and most have failed.  This particular dish doesn’t taste like take out, but it is reminiscent of it. 
I started by sauteeing onions and garlic in butter.  Most of my recipes start like that. 
I added in some grass-fed beef that I sliced up pretty thinly. 
Once it was starting to brown, I added in some celery. 
 When the meat was just about cooked, I added an egg to one side of the pan and fried it up.
By then, it was time for the sauce!  It is just a 3:1.5 mix of soy sauce and rice wine vinegar.  That’s it!
The fast-cooking ingredients were added in last… mushrooms and beet greens!
Just  before I was ready to serve it, I added in some cooked rice.  
Now, normally, I would add in carrots when I added the celery, and ginger when I added the sauce.  THIS time, I just added the lactofermented ginger carrots on top at the end!

  4. Looks so tasty! I love stir fry and it's so great that you can kind of just throw pretty much anything in and end up with something delicious!

    Thanks for sharing your recipe, I'm sure I will be trying it 🙂

    I'm also taking part in the Hearth & Soul hop and that's how I found your blog.

  5. Some of the best recipes in our kitchen came from recreating a favorite restaurant meal. After a good bit of effort…they turn out better than the original.

    Love the effort you put into this one and thanks for sharing at the hearth and soul hop.

  6. Chinese takeout doesn't agree with me anymore either ;o( But I do love a good stirfry and I really like the simplicity of yours. I wish I had some lacto-fermented carrots yum! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Hearth and Soul Hop!
