Beef Stir-fry with Fried Rice


I fixed a new recipe again tonight and it was voted on by the fam as a 4.75 out of 5.  the stir-fry recipe is one I made up years ago and can be used with pork or chicken just as easily.  Here are the recipes.

Beef Stir-fry

2 T. Olive Oil
Beef tenderloin cut up into small pieces
1 red bell pepper diced
1 green bell pepper diced
1 sweet onion diced
6 medium carrots diced
1/2 cup Kikoman's stir-fry sauce
2 T. Soy sauce

Stir together the stir-fry sauce and soy sauce.  In a wok or skillet, add 1 T. olive oil and then add the beef.  Stir-fry the beef and thentransfer to a bowl.  Add the remaining 1 T. olive oil and half the vegetables and stir-fry and then add them to the beef.  Stir-fry the remaining half and then add all back in. Stir in the sauce mixture and continue stirring until the vegetables are as tender as you like (we like ours a little crunchy).  Can be served with plain rice or the fried rice below.

Fried Rice

1 cup chopped meat (if desired)
2 T olive oil
3 cups cooked, cold Rice (white, brown, or instant)
3 green onions, sliced
2 tsp. soy sauce
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup frozen peas and carrots, cooked
1 packet Sun Bird Fried Rice Seasoning Mix (found in the isle that has the oriental foods)

In a large skillet or wok, heat oil.  Stir-fry the rice and green onions.  Add seasoning packet and soy sauce and stir-fry 1 minute.  Push rice to side and add the eggs.  Scramble the eggs and then stir the rice into the eggs.  Add the peas and carrots and meat, if desired.

I hope you enjoy this recipe, I know we sure did.
