Sweet and sour beef

Hey all! Sorry this post is so late in the day; we are on vacation in Oregon and have been enjoying the beach. We will post more about what we have done on Friday.

But for now, here is my attempt at Beijing beef. It turned out to be more like sweet and sour beef because I didn’t have all the stuff and I didn’t want to run to the store to get them.

1 lb. beef (I used sirloin and cut it into small bit sizes slices) You can also use pork or shrimp for this.
1 head of broccoli
Half of a green bell pepper
Half of a large white onion
2 tablespoons of flour (for the beef)
2 tablespoons of lemon juice (for the beef)

Recipe (There are not many steps to this):
Step 1.  Slice steak into strips; put in a bowl and add lemon juice and flour and let sit for 2 hours in the fridge.

Step 2. Cut up veggies and onions and get them ready to cook. Cook these first (before the meat) and then set them aside.

Step 3. Cook meat on medium high heat for about 8 to 10 minutes or until desired color. Add sweet and sour sauce or a custom sauce here. I tried to make it a little more spicy, but because I used store-bought sauce it was pretty sweet.

Step 4. When sauce has been added let sit for a few minutes then add the veggies and let simmer for 8 to 10 minutes. When the veggies are nice and tender the dish is ready. Serve over rice and with dumplings for a nice balanced meal.
