Prep time 2 hours.
Cook time 15-20 minutes
1.5(ish)lbs stew beef
2 x 8oz cans Pineapple chunks
3/4 cup soy sauce
1 tsp Ground ginger
4 Bell peppers
1 vidallia onion
2 bunches Scallions (green onions)
2 tbs minced garlic
First, open your cans of Pineapple chunks and drain the juice in to a measuring cup (it should be about 3/4 cup but take note of how much you get)
Pour the juice in to a large tupperware (or, Glad or Ziplock, or any other container.) make sure it's big enough to hold all the meat.
Measure out the same amount of soy sauce as you had pineapple juice and pour that in with the pineapple juice.
Add 1tsp ground ginger to the mix.
Add the steak and the pineapple chunks and shake to make sure all the beef is covered with sauce.
Throw that in your fridge. You're done with it for the next two hours.
Slice all 4 bell peppers in to strips. I like getting different color peppers because I like to share my food on Instagram and it looks better that way... #FirstWorldProblems
Throw those slices in a large bowl.
Peel the Onion and slice it in to wedges. I'm not gonna tell you what wedges are... you're an adult... you should be able to do that...
Throw those in with the Bell Peppers.
Chop the scallions in to .5ish inch pieces. (that's about 1cm for my metric friends)
Again, throw that in with the other veggies. Do you see a pattern emerging?
Slice the jalapeno in to rings and throw those in.
Cover the top with minced garlic and mix it up.
Cover that and throw it in your fridge as well... If you don't have room in your fridge, leave it on your counter... just make sure the cats don't get in to it..
Now find something to do for the next 2 hours...
Play xbox, go on a walk... drink some wine... I don't care... just let the meat sit in the pineapple juice for a while. Stew beef is shitty, tough meat... if you don't let it soak in the pineapple juice, you're gonna break your jaw trying to chew on it.
Ok, so... now that 2 (or more) hours have passed, heat up some olive oil in a large wok. If you don't have a wok, use a pasta pot or something... I don't know.... I have a wok so I don't have to worry about this kinda shit...
once the oil is heated up, throw in the veggies and then put the meat on top.
let that fry (and boil since there is a lot of water in the veggies) mixing throughout to keep everything heated until the meat is cooked to your liking. Should be about 15-20 minutes depending on how you like your beef cooked.
I cook mine rare so that it doesn't get overcooked when I reheat it the next day.
Now.. there is a lot of liquid with this... you can do a couple things...
you can serve it over Jasmine rice which is delicious... or, what I do is save the liquid and use it as a stock for my Beef Stew.
I don't care what you do with it... throw it down the sink for all I care... Just eat the stirfry and tell me what you think.
