I was never a fan of red meat, but I like to eat it every now and then. The media has scared so many of us from it. Red meat isn’t bad for you if you choose the right cuts and eat in moderation. In this healthy recipe I chose top round steak. It’s lean and tough, so I asked the butcher to slice it thin for me. Remember not to overcook round steak because I think it’s better rare/medium rare.
You will need:
1/2 a pound of lean beef (I used top round steak)
3-4 bell peppers (I chose red, yellow, and green)
1 red onion
half of a lemon
a few cloves of garlic
a teaspoon of vegetable broth (I always skip the oil)
fresh ground black pepper
any other seasonings you’d like to flavor your beef with (I always skip the salt
So here’s the thinly sliced round steak:
I transferred it to a big bowl with a few cloves of garlic (I LOVE GARLIC hehe), juice from half of a lemon and added lot’s of black pepper. I covered it and let it sit in the refrigerator for about an hour.
Meanwhile, I cut all the bell peppers and red onions. I added a few leaves of cilantro. I absolutely love the bright colors of all the peppers and onions combined
Instead of oil (hence the “fry”) I used a dash of vegetable broth to coat my wok and added more garlic. Leave it on high for about a minute. You’ll be able to smell that garlic 🙂
Throw in the beef and watch it sizzle 🙂
You want the beef to be nice and rare like this:
Transfer all the beef to a bowl.
Now it’s time to stir “fry” the veggies until they are nice and tender:
Add the beef from before. Combine and stir for a quick minute or two:
Pair it with some brown rice (even better if you skip the rice and make lettuce wraps!)
See, so you can still have “red” meat and not feel guilty about it 🙂
Cheers to a happier and healthier lifestyle <3<3

Looks healthy and delicious! Maybe I’ll take a break from my usual chicken to try a bit of this red meat.
You should! 🙂 Red meat is perfectly fine just as long as it’s lean and eaten in moderation. Thanks for commenting!
I don’t mind ordering it in restaurants every once in a while; I’m just intimidated to cook it! I really like how you used broth; few people think to cook with anything except oil.
