Ok.. I'm back.. and things SEEM to be working again.... nothing like starting the week off with blogger issues :)
Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and an even better weekend! I had a couple extra days off of work and am ready to face the world again.... I think :) Either way, the show must go on, right, so here we are ... Monday has arrived and with it, a new tasty recipe. This stir fry was simple and delicious. My two favorites things to come out of the kitchen! The only thing I was disappointed in was the fact that I cut the steak funny. Not so funny enough that it was tough, it's just not as pretty as it would have been had the slices been thinner. Oh well.. if that's the worse of it, I think I did pretty well... don't you?
Honey-Balsamic Beef Stir Fry

1 lbs beef sirloin or top round steak, thinly sliced against the grain
1/2 cup beef broth
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 Tablespoons honey

1 red sweet pepper, seeded and cut into thin strips
1/2 sweet onion, thinly sliced
1 cup tightly packed baby spinach leaves
In a measuring cup, mix together the beef broth, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, honey, cornstarch, red pepper flakes, and ginger until well combined.
In a wok or non-stick deep skillet, over medium-high heat, add the vegetable oil. Add beef and quickly stir fry for 1 minute. Add the onion and pepper and continue to stir fry another 4-5 minutes or until the beef is cooked through. Add the spinach and stir to combine. Pour in the broth mixture and stir to combine. As soon as the mixture starts to bubble, remove from heat, stirring to combine. Serve over rice or noodles. Enjoy!
