This dish is a fusion of east and west; it combines butter-browned beef with a savory sauce of soy sauce, garlic and broth.
8 ounces beef round steak, 1/3-inch thick
2 teaspoons butter or margarine
1 1/4 cups cauliflower florets
1/2 small green bell pepper, seeded and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
4 teaspoons soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/2 cup beef broth or water
1/3 cup sliced green onions
Hot cooked rice for accompaniment
- Cut meat into 1/2-inch squares.
- Brown meat in butter about 5 minutes.
- Add cauliflower, green pepper, soy sauce and garlic. Stir lightly to coat vegetables with soy sauce. Cover pan and simmer until vegetables are barely tender, about 10 minutes.
- Blend cornstarch, sugar and broth. Add to meat mixture with green onions. Cook, stirring constantly, until thoroughly heated and sauce is thickened. Serve over beds of hot fluffy rice.
