Beef Strips with Onion

Great appetizer or quick dinner to pare with a cold beer!

(servings: 4 / time: 30 minutes)

1 lb thin cut beef sandwich
1 tbs olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
3 mashed garlic cloves
1 tsp vinegar
1 large onion, sliced thinly
1 tbs soy sauce (optional)

1 – Cut the meat into strips and, in a bowl, season well with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and vinegar.
2 – In a large pan (or skillet), heat 1 tbs vegetable oil and add the meat to fry.
3 – Leave for 2 minutes without stirring. Then stir and fry for 2 more minutes.
4 – Add the onion and sauté, stirring, until golden.
5 – Optional: to finish, pour the soy sauce, mix for less than 1 minute, and turn it off the heat.

Tips and Options

  • Serve with sliced French bread and lettuce salad.
  • You can also use chicken breast instead of beef.
  • Spice up the dish with slices of red peppers or mushrooms.
  • Freeze the leftovers! When you have one of those lazy days, warm up the meat with tomato sauce and make a delicious pasta.

Original recipe (in Portuguese): Iscas de Filé Acebolado.
