First Stir Fry of my Life

April 21, 2009

Somebody gave Daughter Number 2, DeeJaye, an electric wok.  What were they thinking???  She is the last one in the county that would use it.  She and the kids were here for dinner tonite,  so what the heck…I will try it.  I found a recipe in Paula Deen’s Quick & Easy and, as usual, changed it just a bit.  One of these days the food police are going to come along and nab me, but until then……..





2 lbs thinly sliced beef

3 Tbls corn starch

2 tsp salt

2 tsp Pensey’s California Seasoned Pepper (regular pepper will work)


Heat to medium high:

4 Tbls vegetable oil


Add beef mixture and cook for 2 minutes


Combine and add to beef mixture:

2 Tbls minced garlic

¼ c water

3 Tbls soy sauce

1 Tbls garlic-chili sauce

1 tsp sugar

1 Tbsp sherry


Slice thin and add to beef mixture and cook for two minutes:

1 green bell pepper

1 yellow bell pepper

1 red bell pepper

1 yellow bell pepper

1 red onion


I served it over rice, but what ever you want would work.  And it is sooooooooooo yummy.  Hope you enjoy.
