Ingredients

  • 2 pounds top sirloin beef roast, sliced into 1/4 inch slices across the grain
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 large green bell pepper, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 small yellow bell pepper, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cups pearl onions, peeled
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 packet Club House mushroom gravy seasoning mix, 42 grams
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil for frying
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions for garnish, optional
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds for garnish, optional

Instructions

  1. Add the sliced beef, along with the black pepper and soy sauce to a large bowl. Toss well to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour to marinate.
  2. Next, in a large skillet or Dutch oven, add enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Over medium heat, and in a single layer, sear the beef on each side until slightly brown - about two minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside. Do this in batches, adding more oil as needed until all the beef has been cooked.
  3. Add the onions to the skillet and saute for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the peppers and saute for another 5 minutes.
  5. Add the garlic and saute for one more minute.
  6. In the meantime, whisk together the Club House mushroom gravy seasoning mix with one cup of water.
  7. Pour the mixture over the peppers and onions and cook until the sauce has thickened.
  8. Toss the beef back into the skillet and toss to combine with the gravy and the vegetables.
  9. Add a lid and turn off the heat. Allow the beef to sit for 5 minutes.
  10. Plate and garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds. (Optional)
  11. Suggestion: Serve with your favourite cooked rice.
