1/2 lb top sirloin steak, sliced thin
2 tsp cornstarch
1/2 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
4 tsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp fresh minced gingerroot
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp toasted sesame seeds, divided
2 tsp canola oil, divided
2 cups fresh broccoli florets
1 small yellow bell pepper, julienned
1 cup hot cooked brown rice for serving
In a small bowl combine the cornstarch, beef broth, soy sauce, gingerroot, and garlic until well blended; set aside.
In a large nonstick wok or skillet, stir-fry the beef and 1 teaspoon of the sesame seeds in 1 teaspoon of the oil until the beef is no longer pink. Remove from skillet or wok and keep warm.
Add the remaining oil and stir-fry the broccoli for 2 minutes. Add the bell pepper and stir-fry another 5 or 6 minutes until the veggies are crisp tender. Stir the cornstarch mixture to re-blend and add to the vegetables. Bring mixture to a boil; cook, stirring, for a couple of minutes until thickened. Add the beef back into the pan and heat through.
Serve with the brown rice and sprinkle with the remaining sesame seeds.
WELCOME TO DIABETIC ENJOYING FOOD
I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected.
