Guest Post: Stir Fry Peppercorn Beef



Quick and easy meals with leftovers that tastes great until the next day are always part of my repertoire so I am always looking for ways to have dinner ready on the table in less than an hour. After a long day at work, I am not too thrilled to slave over the stove so I would rather make something that I can throw together in less than an hour so that a piping hot meal can be enjoyed in no time.

A simple stir fry always comes to mind especially at times I get a craving for Chinese food. This peppercorn beef is a great alternative without the unwanted and unhealthy ingredients lurking in the seasoning. It is packed with tons of vegetables that adds a wonderful crunch to each bite making it a complete meal you won’t even miss the rice!

    This looks really great. I’ll have to try it without the pineapple, which tends to make my throat itchy. Mango might be good instead of pineapple. I’ll try it and let you know what I think!

    Happy Saturday Morning to Everyone. Well, I must say, I am in total disbelief! I have been reading the cookbook, reading posts and thinking, “there is NO way” that bread is going to be any good. I had tried other grain free recipes and even ordered bread from a bakery in California. Neither that I can say I really liked at all. Needless to say I just took my bread out of the oven. I couldn’t wait and cut a small piece nice and hot and added some left over cashew butter that I had made to use in the recipe. I can’t even believe how delicious this was. How were you able to figure this out amazes me. Today I have to go grocery shopping and now I will be able to make a whole loaf instead of a half. My grand kids are now going to have a new treat! Thanks, Daniel! Continued success with all that you do. Looking forward to trying more recipes from your new cookbook. Looking forward to a new cookbook in the future.
