Beef Szechuan

We moved into our new home a couple weeks ago. We are finally settled and I really couldn’t wait to get back into the kitchen and start baking and cooking. As Jimmy and I were talking about new recipes, he came up with Beef Szechuan. First of all neither one of knew how to spell it, so I asked Siri. Second I had no idea what it was, so I did some research.

Well let’s just say I hit it out of the ball park, according to the hubs. He loved this dinner and probably one of his favorite meals I make. The focus of this meal is the meat, so I went with instant rice to make it a 30 minute meal. By instant rice, I mean the frozen organic brown rice from Trader Joes. I am obsesses with that rice.

Make sure to read through the instructions and tips. You will see how easy it is to make this dinner.

You might need to cook the steak in 2 groups. I have a big skillet and was able to fit in one pan. As soon as I was done placing the steak in the skillet, I flipped it over. Be careful not to over cook the steak. It will finish cooking when you place the steak back in the pan.
