This recipe takes minutes to cook so its a great quick fix. Its a great example of a dish which is delicious for adults but the ingredients can work so baby can play along too.
300g of sirloin or rump steak. Beef frying steak works just as well
A thumb sized piece of ginger
2 cloves of garlic
Half a red chilli
3-4 spring onions
Coriander - fresh or dried
2 tablespoons of Black Bean Sauce
2 table spoons of Soy sauce
Peel and finely slice the garlic, ginger, chilli and spring onions add to a bowl with the beef which is best sliced in finger sized strips.
Sprinkle with coriander. If using fresh, use the stalks and save the leaves for dressing before serving. If this was just for me and M I would marinade all of the above in 2 tablespoons of sesame oil but last night I just used a tiny bit of olive oil instead due to my allergy paranoia. Leave to marinade for a couple of hours.
Preheat wok till its very hot and then add oil. If you're happy to, ground nut oil is delicious but again I just used olive oil. Add all the ingredients to the wok and stir fry for a couple of minutes. At this point I took out a few pieces of beef for Little legs, and added the black bean and soy sauce to the remainder. Way too salty for her.
I served up with broccoli and noodles and she had a field day. She didn't get beyond sucking the beef but the noodles and broccoli made it down the old food tube.
