...Surprise...Surpirse...it's another broccoli and beef dish! Mine is a little different though. I used a Clementine/Calfornia Mandarin/Cutie (whatever you want to call it, it's just a Mandarin orange) to make it more of an Orange Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry.





I used chunky onion, juice of clementine, sliced mushrooms, Kraft Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing/Marinade, little sherry, broccoli, fresh ginger, chicken broth, garlic, little peanut oil, and sliced beef tenderloin.





I have used the Asian dressing in the past to make Speedy Chicken Stir Fry (Kraft Food and Family, Fall 2007), and it was pretty good. So I decided to try it with beef, and it was pretty good. I did miss the flavor of oyster sauce that I normally put in beef and broccoli.

That looks fantastic cooksie!! I don't use much bottled dressing but I am going to look for that one. I have never put citrus in my beef and broccoli stir fry but this sounds yummy and I will have to try it soon!!

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

Once again, I will be making my creation tonight (Sundays are my Franken Pantry night).
But this time my oldest son is going to help me (I hope).

I must say that it looks like you guys are going to be a hard act to follow!

Great work all.

We'll post in the morning.

Well last night the WILD CARD was Tequila!

The Sauce:
I made a Tequila Blue Cheese with Shitake mushrooms in a red wine reduction sauce. (That's a mouthful LOL)
Added to the sauce was crushed peppercorns shallots fresh garlic and ginger. Just a hint of paprika and chili powder.
I used Kraft Blue cheese dressing for the sauce.
I needed something to thicken my sauce and it worked.
Also added incredible contrast to the wine and ginger.
And about an ounce of tequila.

The Rice:
Brown Rice cooked in Chicken broth with a hint of chili powder.

The Broccoli:
I seared it in the pan with ginger and olive oil. Then sprinkled with salt.

Tequila Steak:
Sirloin Baseball cut, rubbed with coarse sea salt cracked pepper and garlic powder.
Brought to room temp (very important).
Then seared in garlic oil.
Once the steak was done on the first side, I flipped it over and began searing it on the other.
A few minutes before I would normally take it off, I dowsed it with Tequila and flambe it for a couple minutes creating a very flavorful sauce.
I mopped it all up using both sides of the steak and then set it on the cutting board to allow it to rest.

As you can see I plated it up and garnished it with ginger and chives.

A few things I noticed while preparing and eating this meal.
Fried ginger takes on a similar flavor to rosemary.
Blue cheese goes very well with steak and searing the broccoli really enhances it's flavor.
I'm not a big Veggie fan, but when I do eat veggies.
I prefer them either seared in a pan, roasted in the oven or cooked on the BBQ.
Also Tequila makes a great "Rue" (Sauce) how do you spell it?
All in all it was a great night. My 13 year old son helped and created his own plating. He doesn't care for mushrooms or blue cheese. His is the first pic.

Wonderful job, GTS and son! Steak is perfectly cooked and the sauce looks de-lish. Your son has a real knack for plating--love the garlic flower.

Brilliant, GTS! You are really exercising your creative abilities, and it looks delicious. Maybe you missed your calling! I'm very impressed.

Hey thanks Karen,
Isn't cooking great? The sauce actually tasted better today now that the ingredients had more time to combine with each other.
Like I've said before, I take it pretty seriously and I really enjoy cooking.
In fact I'm planning on working in a sushi restaurant in the New Year.
I've been going to a particular sushi place for about 15 years and have gotten to know the owners quite well.
I have volunteered to help make sushi on the evenings that I do not have my boys.
As it turns out those days (Mondays and Tuesdays) they only have one sushi chef working and can be a little short handed at times.
So I learn and in exchange I provide them with free help.
Uh...they have to provide the beer though. LOL
Also I would like to take a culinary coarse, nothing extreme. But something I can do in my spare time.
