Sweet Ginger Beef Slaw

If you love Asian flavours you should love this. I got the recipe from Company's Coming "Meal Salads". I'll definitely be making this again!

You Need:
2 tbsp brown sugar, packed
2 tbsp soy sauce
3/4 tsp ground ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/8 tsp pepper

1 tsp sesame oil
1 lb beef top sirloin steak, cut into thin strips

2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds (super easy to do...just put in a frying pan over med/high heat and watch closely..they don't take long)

4 cups of broccoli slaw, lightly packed (or you could use shredded cabbage with carrot, but the broccoli slaw does work perfectly)
14 oz can of baby corn, drained
1 cup snow peas, trimmed and halved diagonally
1/2 cup asian-style sesame dressing
1/2 cup julienned radish
2 tbsp finely sliced green onion

Here's what you do:

1. combine first 5 ingredients in a small cup
2. heat large frying pan on med/high heat until very hot
3. add sesame oil and then add beef
4. stir fry until browned. add brown sugar mixture. stir and cook for about 1 minute stirring often, until coated. remove from heat
5. sprinkle with sesame seeds. toss and let stand for about 10 minutes

now here is where i swayed from the recipe.

it says to mix remaining 6 ingredients, add beef and toss...however...if you save your left overs and you don't want soggy salad...don't do that. if all of it will be eaten in one meal, you're probably okay...just make sure you serve immediately...it's not good soggy.

I put the broccoli slaw, baby corn, snow peas, radish and green onion in a bowl and then when it came time to eat, we put the veggies on our plate, drizzled with dressing, then added the beef and mixed it on our plate. No soggy veggies...nice warm meat with it...mmmm....mmmm and it was just as good left over the next day for lunch!

Let me know if you try it!
