I decided it was time to bite the bullet and try to prepare beef. I feel like the easiest way to cook beef is on the grill, but I don’t have a grill. I’m always afraid I’m going to over or under cook beef in the oven. I picked this recipe because Stir Frying is easy, and something I know I can handle. I was a big fan of the Juila and Julia movie. Julia Childs used to say: Be Brave (referring to cooking) so when ever I get nervous I tell myself to Be Brave and just cook. I was brave and my beef came out tender, juicy, flavorfully, and delicate. I’m very proud of my first beef dish, so proud that I had to share it with all of you. I hope you enjoy.
