School of Cooking Round Two

May 8 Picture of the Day:

Tonight’s menu consists of Asian beef with peas and microwavable rice, to be followed with a dessert course of cake batter cookies with secret ingredient. (No, Ryan. Not vodka.)

Cut: Beef Round Tip Thin (2 pounds)
Mix: 3 tbs soy sauce, 2 tbs rice vinegar, 1tbs brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cornstarch
Stir fry 1 tbs of garlic
Add beef, cook
Add peas (we used sugar snap peas, though the recipe called for snow peas. As you can see, we took some creative license on this one), cook
Add sauce mixture
Stir everything, let boil

1) If you are cooking with eggs and oil, put in eggs first so the oil doesn’t stick

2) Secret ingredients to make any dessert better: __________ and ___________

3) Don’t use a knife with a serrated edge to cut meat; serrated edge knives are good for apples, tomatoes, and other such things that you want to saw through, as oppose to chop. You want to chop meat, apparently.
4) Use a big enough pan when stir frying meat
