Papa Choy's Tomato Beef


from Sam Choy's Island Flavors
Sam says:When I was a kid and came home from school, my dad would go to the refrigerator and take out a bunch of vegetables. He'd wash, chop, and slice them, lay them out in a pan, then take some beef, slice it thin, and marinate it. After a quick stir-fry, this delicious dish was ready to eat. It's just amazing how quick he could do it, and how good it tasted. Dad finally taught me how to make his famous Tomato Beef when I was fourteen. It's great over steamed rice.

Step 1

Slice the beef into thin strips, or bite-sized pieces. Massage the marinade into the meat. Let marinate for 30 minutes.

Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan over medium-high heat. Stir-fry the beef for about 2 minutes; remove from pan and set aside. Add vegetables to the pan, and stir-fry until onion is translucent, about 3 minutes. Add stir-fry sauce to the vegetables. Cook for about 2 minutes, until it comes to a boil. Add the beef and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
