We had steak on the grille over the weekend and the sirloin I had was so big, I cut and saved part of it for 'something else." This was the something else. It is delicious, has that Texas "zing" to it with the addition of the Rotel and to us, it was absolutely perfect and delicious. 

start to finish: about 30 minutes
Yield: 4 generous servings

1 pound sirloin steak, cut across the grain into small strips
black pepper
1-2 cloves garlic, minced (or 2 tsp of pre-minced)
1 medium onion, sliced thin
1 med-large bell pepper, sliced thin
1 can Rotel diced tomatoes & green chiles (hot or mild--your choice)
1 Tbs soy sauce
3 Tbs cornstarch
1-1/2 cups beef stock (1 can)
3 Tbs cooking oil, divided use (I used EVOO &  Sesame oil)
1-1/2 cups regular rice
3 cups chicken stock/broth (2 cans) or water

*If you want to serve a salad with this dish, prepare it first*

Cut & prepare prepare onion and bell pepper. Set aside.

Combine raw rice and chicken stock or water in a micro-safe bowl and cook on high, covered, 20 minutes. (If you use Minute Rice, start it 5 minutes before stir fry is ready). While rice is cooking:

Combine beef stock, soy sauce and cornstarch in a medium bowl. Whisk to combine well. Set aside.

Cut sirloin into about 1/4" strips (across the grain) and sprinkle with black pepper.
Heat a wok or large skillet over medium high with 2 Tbs. oil. When hot (almost smokin') carefully put in your sirloin and brown. This should not take more than about 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove meat and keep warm.

Add 1 Tbs oil to the skillet/wok. ((This is where I added my sesame oil and a few shakes of some of Angostura Teriyaki Sauce I had hanging around in the pantry. You can skip this part if you don't have any)). Add prepared bell pepper, onion, garlic and soy sauce. Stir around for about 1-1/2 to 2 minutes until veg starts to soften. Add Rotel and your beef stock mix. Stir to combine and get it boiling. Lower heat to simmer. Mixture will begin to thicken. Stir if it needs it.

Ding! Rice should be ready. Set the table right quick.

Add your cooked sirloin to the hot mixture. Stir around. Let it heat for 1-2 minutes. Ready to serve over hot, cooked rice.

I served with a side salad and some of my delicious toasted English Muffin Bread (recipe posted elsewhere on this page). A wonderful meal.
