Meat dishes don't get much easier than this! Marinate the beef for as long as you have, and then brown it in a saucepan. It's a perfect taco topping, and you can also serve it with stir-fried veggies, or as part of a grain bowl.

  • 1 package stir-fry beef
  • 1/4 cup sunflower or olive oil
  • 2/3 teaspoon salt
  • a few grinds of pepper
  • 2 teaspoons white wine or red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons minced parsley, oregano and thyme, in any proportion you desire
  1. Combine all of the ingredients, and using a pair of tongs or clean hands, toss to coat.
  2. Let the beef sit for as long as you want, for 30 minutes up to overnight. 
  3. Heat a heavy bottomed pan over medium to medium high heat. When it's hot, add the beef, such that the pieces don't touch (you can cook it in two batches, if needed). 
  4. Sear until the first side is brown. Turn.
  5. Cook until it is the doneness you desire, whether that be rare, or well-done.
  6. Let cool for 3 or 4 minutes. 
  7. The stir-fry beef in our share isn't the most tender, so it would be nice to cut the pieces further, before you add them to you tacos. Just line a few pieces up, and cut across the grain.
