Beef Satay Stir Fry

I have to 'fess up here.  I made this just for my husband and I because I had some steak which needed eating up and it was a nursery day so Pumpkin had his tea there but I am 100% confident my son will like this and there's nothing in there he can't or won't eat.  It's a tasty meal without paying a small fortune for a stir fry sauce.

Beef Satay Stirfry - served 2 adults


Half an onion cut into thin half moons
Half a carrot, cut into julienne strips
1 clove garlic, finely sliced
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
200g steak cut into very thin strips
1 pepper, cut into thin strips (I used half a green pepper and half red pepper)
1 tsp oil


1 rounded tbsp smooth peanut butter
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce

To serve

Rice or noodles


Blend the sauce ingredients together with 3 tbsp boiling water and blend to mix in the peanut butter.

Prepare any noodles or rice you would like to serve with it.  (I cooked some noodles for one minute less than suggested on the packet, drained them and stir fried with the beef but you could also serve on the side or use rice.)

Prep your vegetables and meat so everything is ready to go.

Heat the oil in a wok and add the carrot and onion.  Stir fry for a couple of minutes until softening.  Add in the garlic, ginger and then quickly follow with the beef and pepper.  Stir around for a few seconds and then add in the sauce.  Heat until everything is bubbling and the beef is just cooked.  If liked stir in the noodles (if using).  Serve.

What a roller coaster week this has been.  I've had to scrape myself off the floor emotionally more than once.  It's been tough times in the Mamacook household for everyone.  A big hug goes out to all of those friends and family who are supporting me through these tough times.  You know who you are and your love and support is all that's keeping me going some days.
