Mexican stirfry

Every now and then I really like something that has a bit of a bite but does not involve the many ingredients for a good curry so I turn to this amazing Mexican beef dish that is so simple and really delicious that I made yesterday. This is good for 4 servings.

What you need

700-750g steak (sirloin, rump scotch fillet)
1 red onion (just for color but regular onion is fine)
1 red pepper sliced
1 yellow pepper sliced
2 tomatoes halved and sliced (seeds removed)
Mexican seasoning (spice section of the supermarket)

The process

Slice the beef into strips about 1cm thick (be sure to cut across the grain)

Place the beef in a bowl and season with about 2 tablespoons of the seasoning and mix it ensuring that each piece gets seasoned.

brown the meat in a hot pan with a little oil in batches. It’s important to do it in batches or the meat will stew and become tough. You want to almost flash cook it so that it brown on the outside and remains slightly rare and tender.

Wipe the pan clean with some paper towel, add a little more oil and stir fry the peppers and tomatoes for about 3 minutes. You still want them to have some crunch.

Return the meat to the pan and toss for a minute or two to combine it all well.

Serve with pita bread or a French loaf.
