Surprise Stir Fried Rice

     Surprise Stir Fried Rice is a name I came up with because I had no idea what I was going to put in this stir fry dish.  I was asked to do a dish for my google+ community utilizing rice.  I have a couple dishes on here that use rice but thought the possibilities are endless.  I had some left over beef tips that I thawed out as well as the vegetables utilized below.  My measurements are a bit different with this dish due to the fact that I really just eyeballed them. This dish was delicious.  I mean it had heat, it had sweetness, and it had spice.  It had flavors from Chinese, Thai, and other Asian cuisines. I'm not quite sure the raspberry chipotle sauce added much as I could not distinguish it from the rest so you could eliminate this step. Overall I would definitely make this dish again.  It was quick, easy, and the flavors all went well together.  Two bowls and I was satisfied. Surprise Stir Fry.
  • 1/2 lb beef tips diced thin
  • Small handful diced red onion
  • Small handful frozen green beans
  • Small handful diced green pepper
  • 1 tbs diced ginger
  • 1 tbs diced garlic
  • 2 cups cooked white rice
  • 2 tbs soy
  • 1 tbs oyster
  • 1 tbs hoisin
  • 1 tsp rice wine
  • 1 tsp chili paste
  • 1 tbs raspberry chipotle sauce
  • Small handful brown sugar
  • Salt/pepper
     In a small bowl combine the soy, oyster, hoisin, rice wine, chili paste, raspberry-chipotle sauce, and brown sugar.  Mix well.  In a large wok over high heat drizzle in a little bit of vegetable oil.  Toss in the diced beef tips and start to brown. Next toss in the onion, green beans, pepper, ginger, and garlic.  Mix and sauté until vegetables start to soften and the aromas of the garlic and ginger start to fill the air.  Pour in the sauce mixture and simmer for a minute or two.  Stir in the rice and mix around until some of the rice begins to harden up.  This dish was delicious.  It was spicy just enough and had an amazing flavor combination. Enjoy. Serves 2-4.
