滑蛋筍片炒牛肉/Fried Beef and Bamboo in Egg Sauce

My little 20-month old is getting more and more hyper. Her vocabulary is expanding so much every day and she repeats every word she learns all day.  She loves asking for food and making messes here and there, so I have to make quick and healthy meals otherwise I’ll end up spending more time cleaning than cooking.  I decided to make beef for dinner today because I haven’t made beef for a while and both my husband and I were really craving it.  This Fried Beef and Bamboo in Egg Sauce meal takes 20 minutes to make and if you are a beef lover, you will love this meal!




Ingredients:

·      7 oz shredded lean beef
·      2 oz leek
·      5 oz pre-steamed bamboo shoots
·      2 chopped red chili pepper
·      1 green onion
·      1 oz sliced ginger
·      ½ tsp salt
·      A quarter tsp white pepper powder
·      2 tbsp grape seed oil
·      1 tsp sesame oil
·      2 eggs

To marinate the beef:

·      1 tbsp cornstarch water
·      1 tsp sesame oil
·      1 egg white
·      1 tsp soy sauce

Directions:

1.    Marinate the beef 15 minutes before cooking.
2.    Cut the leek and green onion an inch and half long.  Slice the bamboo shoots.  Beat the eggs in a bowl.
3.    In a nonstick medium saucepan or a wok, heat 1 tbsp grape seed oil over medium-high heat.  Add the beef and cook for about a minute.  Transfer to a plate.
4.    Wash the wok, and then add 1 tbsp grape seed oil over high heat.  Add leek, chili pepper and ginger to cook for about 10 seconds.  Add bamboo shoots, pepper powder, salt and sesame oil.  Stir for about 2 minutes.  Reduce the heat to medium-high, and then add cooked beef and green onion.  Mix everything evenly, and then add the egg.  Keep mixing it until everything is covered by egg.  Transfer to a serving plate and serve with rice.  Enjoy your meal!
