Beef with Bell Pepper Stir-fry

This classic Asian stir-fry with bell peppers and a hint of Chinese five-spice powder makes a tasty and hearty meal. Serve over hot noodles or rice.

(Serves 4)


1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon beef bouillon granules
1 cup water
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 pound beef tenderloin
1 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 medium cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 medium onion, cut into wedges

Combine cornstarch, bouillon granules, water, soy sauce and sesame oil in a small bowl.  Mix well and set aside.

Cut meat into thin slices.  Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over high heat.  Add garlic and five-spice powder.  Stir-fry for 15 seconds.  Add meat to skillet and stir-fry until browned.  Add mushrooms, peppers and onion.  Stir-fry until peppers are tender but still crisp (about 2 minutes).  Stir in cornstarch mixture and cook until liquid boils and thickens.
