Low Sodium Beef Saute Recipe
By Eat Low Sodium
This saute recipe is best made with top loin, sherry wine and soy sauce. You can definitely replace top loin with sirloin or sherry wine with vinegar or improvise the ingredients as you wish. However, so far we have obtained the best results by using the ingredients mentioned below.
Yield: 4 servings
- 1 lb. of beef top loin (any other kind of 'tender' beef can be used instead)
- 1 lb. of broccoli
- 1 carrot
- 4 bunches of green onions
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 inch-cubed of ginger
- 1/2 cup of low sodium beef broth or water
- 1 tablespoon of corn flour
- 2 tablespoons of low sodium, MSG-free soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons of sherry wine
- 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil (optional)
- Cut the beef into one-inch slices, and then cover them with corn flour.
- Cut the green onions into two-inch slices. Chop the carrot into very thin slices (as thin as match sticks).
- Smash the garlic and slice the ginger very very thin.
- Get rid of the stems of broccoli. We will need their flowery parts.
- Warm a large saute pan. Once it is warm, pour vegetable oil in it. Then place the sliced beef into the pan and fry them for five minutes. (if you do not want to use oil, that is fine. Just make sure you use a non-stick pan and fry the beef in its own fat. You may have to fry them less than five minutes depending on how lean the beef you use is.)
- Once the beef is fried, take it out of the pan. Place the green onions, carrot, garlic, broccoli and low sodium beef broth (or water instead) in the same pan. Close the pan lid and warm it for five minutes at low heat.
- Remove the lid and continue stirring until all the water in the pan evaporates.
- Pour low sodium soy sauce and sherry wine into the pan. Then add the fried beef. Continue stirring for five more minutes. By then all the ingredients should be cooked adequately. If not, continue cooking and stirring three more minutes.
- Bon appetite! Hint: The beef saute goes great with noodles!
