Cooking Basics..Everything you need to know about cooking











 Serve it on top of rice and voila, a wonderful meal.

Can I tell you guys something? I really, really, hate that I am such a terrible food photographer. I look at all these fab websites’ food photos, and then I look at mine and feel really bad. Sorry, about that. I hope I can improve for you guys! 🙂

Also, stay tuned for some healthier recipes. I’m really tall, and I get that I should be a model a lot. Truth is, I would really love to model. I think I should take advantage of the fact that I’m tall, right? So I am looking for healthy recipes, not a lot of butter, oil, carbs, or anything unhealthy. Thanks for listening to me, fab readers. Please comment, I would really appreciate that 🙂

Mongolian Beef (Adapted from http://food.com)

You Will Need:

– 1 cup soy sauce

– 1/2 cup water

– 1 lb flank steak, cut into thin strips

– a dash of red pepper flakes

– 1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced

– 2 tablespoons minced ginger

– 2 tsp minced garlic

– scant 3/4 cup brown sugar (it’s a sweet dish, cut the sugar down a little if it’s too much for you)

–  1 1/2 tsp sesame oil

– 1/4 cup cornstarch

– canola oil

Directions:

1. Coat flank steak strips with cornstarch for 10 minutes.

2. Heat sesame oil. Add in ginger and garlic, and cook on medium low heat for about 2 minutes, or until translucent.

3.  Turn heat down, and quickly add in soy sauce and water.

4. Add in red pepper flakes, and put heat on medium. Let come to a boil, and cook for 2 minutes. It should look slightly thickened.

5. Heat oil (enough to coat the meat)  in a wok. Add in flank steak pieces, and cook for 2 1/2 minutes (don’t worry about cooking it totally through, it will cook a little longer with the sauce.)

6. On a paper plate, place paper towels, and take off the grease from steak. Pour the oil out of the pan.

7. Pour the sauce into the wok, and gently stir in green onions. Let simmer for 5 minutes.

8. Serve over rice.
