Clam is one of my favorite foods. Every time when I go back to China, I will make sure I eat tons and tons of them. It is kind of expensive in the US, so we don’t buy it very often. My mother bought it today because I was working so hard to make her birthday cake last weekend. Love.

2 servings $3.20 per serving

I bought 3 pieces of rib eye steak the other day, I ate one just grill, then steak fajita and taco. I was thinking to make it with Chinese mix vegetable, so here is how I cook it Chinese style.

Rib eye steak 7oz.

1/4 leek

cherry tomato 4

Shredded carrot 3 tbsps

Small red onion 1/2

Medium green pepper 1/3

Garlic 1 clove

Direction:

Thin slice steak.

cut cherry tomato into halves

Smash garlic

Cut the rest of vegetables into thin shreds.

Add 1/3 cup oil into a hot skillet, add steak to the oil and cook until the color turn brown about 60- 70 seconds depends on how thin you slice the steak. Don’t over cook it. Take the steak out of the skillet.

Leave about 2 tbsps oil in the skillet, add garlic, carrot, leek and red onion and stir fry for 2 minutes.

Add the rest of the vegetables and steak to the skillet alone with 2tsps oyster sauce, 1tbsp light soy sauce continue to stir fry for 2 minutes.

Add 1.5 tbsps Chinese cooking wine and 1/3 tsp chicken bouillon and mix well.

This is a quick dish, it took me about 15 minutes including preparing and cutting. For a good piece of steak like this, the meat doesn’t need to be Marinated. I used very few sauce or spice to cook it so we will eat the most original flavors from the steak and the fresh vegetables. I really enjoy the sweet and a little sour flavor from the cherry tomato. Wonderful!!!

我买了3块肋眼牛排, 第一天我吃了一个普通煎的牛排餐, 然后牛排法嘿塔卷和玉米卷。今天我想烧中国料理。

肋眼牛排7盎司。

1/4 颗美国大蒜苗

樱桃西红柿4粒

胡萝卜丝3汤匙

红洋葱1/2个

中号青椒1/3个

大蒜1粒

做法:

牛排切薄片

把樱桃西红柿切成一半

大蒜切末

把剩下的蔬菜切成丝

加1/3 杯油到一个热过的锅里, 加牛排到油里炒到变棕色约 60-70 秒取决于你切牛排的厚度。不要过度炒牛肉,嫩一点好吃。把牛肉从锅里盛出来。

留下约2汤匙油在锅里, 加入大蒜, 胡萝卜, 蒜苗和洋葱, 炒2分钟。

把剩下的蔬菜和牛排加到煎锅里外加2茶匙蚝油, 1汤匙生抽继续炒2分钟。

最后加入1.5 汤匙料酒和1/3 茶匙鸡肉精, 拌匀。

这是一个快菜, 它总共花了我大约15分钟时间, 包括准备和切洗。吃这么好的牛排, 肉不需要腌。我用很少的酱料来烹调它, 因为就是要吃牛排和新鲜蔬菜的原味。我真的很喜欢樱桃西红柿的微甜微酸的味道。美妙!!!
