I have always loved stir fries. After I found out I was dairy intolerant, we began to eat more stir fries, until I found out a few months later that I was also soy intolerant. I thought my enjoyment of stir fries was over until my husband got to work making a soy-free stir fry. Thank goodness he likes to experiment in the kitchen! Here is a great recipe:
Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry – Soy Free
3 heads broccoli
2 t-bone steaks, cut into bite size pieces
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tbsp. ginger
3/4 cup mirin
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. salt
dash of red pepper
3 tbsp. vegetable oil
-Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper and marinate in 1/3 cup of the mirin overnight in the refrigerator.
-In a small bowl, mix garlic, ginger, another 1/3 cup of mirin, onion powder, 1 tsp. salt, 2 tbsp. oil.
-Cut the broccoli in bite size pieces and stir fry in 1 tbsp. oil for 4 minutes until bright green and crisp. Add a small amount of water to prevent burning, if necessary. Remove from pan and set aside.
-Add beef to the pan and cook until browned on all sides. Before it is completely brown, add the remaining mirin to the pan for extra moisture.
-Remove beef and wipe out the pan with a paper towel to remove extra fat.
-Add broccoli and beef back to the pan, cover with the sauce and stir until warmed through.
