Stinky Meat

Uh, that would be beef cooked with garlic, soy sauce, Vietnamese style chile-garlic sauce, and did I mention the garlic?

4 servings
20 minutes - 10 minutes prep time

Stinky Meat - Beef with Garlic, Soy Sauce and Chile-Garlic Sauce
450 grams (1 pound) lean boneless stewing beef
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 or 3 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
3 to 6 cloves of garlic- as much as you think you will like
1 to 3 teaspoons Vietnamese chile-garlic sauce

Cook the beef slowly in a large skillet in the oil. After it has browned, add the soy sauce or tamari. While that happens, peel and mince the garlic. Add the garlic to the pan. Continue cooking, for about 15 to 20 minutes, until the pan juices thicken and coat the meat. Stir occasionally. Stir in the Vietnamese chile-garlic sauce about 5 minutes before serving.

Serve over mashed potatoes, barley pilaf or rice. Next time I'm going to try it in a crusty roll as a sandwich. Nice with a bit of lemon juice squeezed over top. A salad with lots of parsley might be a good idea. Also, you can get rid of that infused-with-stale-garlic feeling the next day by means of a little vigorous exercise.

Last year on this date I made Baked Mushroom Meatballs, Roasted Baby Zucchini and Corn & Barley Salad.
