Beef stir-fry with tender stem broccoli and shitake mushrooms
The secret behind a good stir-fry is to have all your ingredients ready before you start. Make sure that everything is cut to size and if you don’t want your vegetables too crunchy, drop them in boiling water for 5 minutes before adding them to the stir-fry.
3 tablespoons food4four stir-fry oil
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
400 grams beef, thinly sliced
2 egg whites
3 teaspoons potato starch

1/3 cup food4four stir-fry sauce
1 tablespoon food4four chilli sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil

1 ½ cups rice
Prepare all your ingredients.
Bring a saucepan with 3 cups of water and 1 teaspoon salt to a boil, add the rice; give it a stir and bring it back to a boil; cover, lower the heat and cook for 15 minutes. Remove the por from the heat and let it stand, covered for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork and start with the stir-fry.
