Pineapple Beef Stir-Fry


Mmmmmm... stir-fry! I love stir-fry because it is usually quick, packed with veggies, and good for you! This was so delicious! It took a little longer to make just because the meat had to marinate, but as far as cooking time goes, it was speedy!

Pineapple Beef Stir-Fry

Recipe from Baby Center CFYF (I think....)

1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks

1/2 cup minced fresh cilantro

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 TBSP ground ginger

1 pound boneless beef round steak, thinly sliced

1 tsp cornstarch

2 tsp canola oil

1 medium sweet red pepper, thinly sliced

1/2 cup cut fresh green beans

1 TBSP chopped green chilies

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 green onions, sliced

Drain the pineapple, reserving 1 cup pineapple and 3/4 cup juice. Save remaining pineapple for another use.

In a small bowl, combine the cilantro, soy sauce, ginger, and pineapple juice. Remove 3/4 cup of this mixture and refrigerate. Combine beef and remaining marinade in ziploc bag and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Drain and discard marinade. Combine cornstarch and the 3/4 cup marinade. In a wok, stir-fry beef in oil for 5-6 minutes. Remove beef and set aside. Add red pepper, green beans, chilies, and garlic; stir-fry for 5 minutes.

Stir in marinade/cornstarch mixture. Bring to a boil; cook for 1 minute or until thickened. Add the onions, beef, and reserved pineapple. Heat through. Serve over rice.
