Wok This Way

RecipesPosted by Nicky Tue, April 04, 2017 08:22PM

Wok this way

Splash Rapeseed Oil

190g Bavette Steak sliced thinly

2 Garlic Cloves finely chopped

1 Green Chilli finely chopped

1 inch Ginger finely chopped

1 Red Onion Sliced

1 Bunch of Spring Onions Sliced

250g Mushrooms sliced

200g Cauliflower florets

1 Courgettes Sliced

1 Red Pepper Sliced

2 Pak Choi Chopped

1tsp Chinese 5 Spice

2tbsp Soy Sauce

You could cook this in a frying pan, but I love my Wok and make sure that it is very hot when I start.

So the list of ingredients is written in the order that they go into the dish to make this a really easy recipe to follow.

The reason I use Rapeseed oil over others, is it can stand a higher heat and is still really good for you.

Heat the Rapeseed Oil in the Wok until it is nearly spitting. Add the Bavette Steak and flash fry, stirring, flipping all the time, you do not want to over cook this meat as it really only needs a couple of minutes. Once sealed remove from the oil and keep to one side.

Next add the Garlic, Chilli and Ginger, Red Onion and Spring Onion and fry for about 2 minutes

Next add the Mushrooms, Cauliflower Florets and Red Pepper.

Fry for about 2 minutes and then sprinkle on the 5 Spice. Mix around covering everything and add the chopped Pak Choi, cook for a minute and add in your Soy Sauce.

Add back in the beef and the juices that have come from it.

Finish off for about 1 more minute and serve.


The Verdict

So filling I was unable to eat all of mine, so full. Would make this again and again.

The Nerdy Bit

Well you do not have to be a rocket scientist to know that there will be a lot of good stuff in this one.

Pak Choi :- Has so many vitamins in it, naming Vitamin A, C, K and B6. It is low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol, plus has a great source of minerals in it such as Calcium, Iron, Magnesium and Potassium.

Red Peppers :- Again the vitamins in here are amazing, A, C, K, B6, (which is important for the formation of red blood cells)

They are also low in Saturated Fats, Cholesterol and Sodium.

Courgettes :- I use this a lot, so already covered this in my Cheeky Kicking tomato soup. But be assured they are really good for you.
