Stir Fry and Wild Rice (and a leaky roof!)Posted: March 26, 2011
Good morning fellow Edmontonians!
I am finally on the mend, and am beginning to show life again. As is our wonderful city. It truly is spring! You wanna know how I know? My ceiling is leaking… A LOT! I came home to a shower in my dinning room one day this week, and I felt the need to share some photos.
Yes, this is my beautiful Garneau Home. I love the kitchen, and thank God it doesn’t leak in there! It’s enough to have fear that the roof will cave in in two rooms… Sheesh! Thank God it’s almost fully spring, and my Landlord will get the roof fixed once and for all!
Anyway, on to the recipe. Stir fry has been a staple food of mine for years. It’s such a versatile meal! You can add any protein, any vegetable, and any sauce. It’s the perfect meal for a “cleaning out the fridge” kind of evening. I love stir fry! This time, I decided to spice up my regular stir fry by adding curry paste and using wild rice from Eat Local First’s Good Food Box. This was good stir fry!!
I began by cooking up a bit of the curry paste with a teeny bit of cooking oil, to bring out the flavour.
For the rice, I used Wild rice from MoNa foods, which I got from the good people at Eat Local First’s Good Food Box. This rice was awesome! It was hearty and filling. It added a lot to a regular stir fry. Warning though, it took a long time to cook. You should begin by making the rice (something that I didn’t think of until the end…)
Pretty Isn’t it?
Of course, we made too much. It is a curse of mine. I always make too much rice/pasta. Oh well! Leftovers!
Ta da! Delicious Stir fry! Enjoy!
Jacquie’s Tasty Stir Fry
For the sauce:
1 Tablespoon of curry paste
1 Tablespoon of peanut butter
1Tablespoon of Teriyaki Sauce
1 Tablespoon Low sodium soy sauce
1 Tablespoon Hoisin Sauce
For the stir fry filling:
1 steak, marinated overnight in soy sauce in the fridge
1 orange bell pepper
8 small mushrooms
10 fresh green beans from the Farmer’s Market. (hmm)
1 cup wild rice
For the sauce, heat and cook the curry paste with a tiny bit of cooking oil, until you can smell the flavors being let loose. Then add the rest of the ingredients to make the sauce, cook together until well combined.
Slice up the steak and let brown (don’t forget to flip them), until cooked to desired tenderness. Add the veggies and cook until just crispy.
Cook wild rice as per instructions on the package. Make sure to give yourself extra time to cook rice! Takes almost an hour to cook fully!!
