Peppered Beef Stir “fry”

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:

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Throw in the beef and watch it sizzle ๐Ÿ™‚

You want the beef to be nice and rare like this:

Now it’s time to stir “fry” the veggies until they are nice and tender:
