Recipe: Black Bean Paste Beef Tenderloin Stri Fry

 This is a quick, easy and tasty way to use any cut of beef. I usually use tenderloin, as my grocery store regularly sells it by the whole loin for pretty darn cheap. It's also a pretty lean cut of beef. I cut it up in either steaks or cubes, and use it for roasts, steaks or stir fry. Delicious, and pretty good on the budget.


~3/4 lb beef tenderloin, cut in cubes
~1 big onion, chopped (about 1 1/2 cup)
~1 yellow bell pepper (any colour will do)
~2 cups broccoli, chopped in small fleurets
~2-3 green onions, chopped (about 1/4 cup)
~2 tbsp canola oil
~2 1/2 tbsp Black bean paste (this is the brand I use)

Mix the black bean paste with the beef, and let marinate at least 10-15 minutes. In a pan over medium high heat, heat up the oil and quickly soften the onions, about 1-2 min. Add the peppers and stir, 1-2 min. Add the beef and cook for a few min, up until the vegetables are still a bit crunchy and the meat is done to your likeness (I like it med-rare). Turn off the heat. Stir in the broccoli and green onions, cover with a lid and steam for a 3-4 min.

Eat as is, or over rice, pasta, quinoa, whatever you want!

Nutritional Information:

Depending on the cut of beef you use, the nutritional info will change. If you eat it over rice/pasta/quinoa, this will also change the macros of your meal. Here's what my recipe yields per portion (4 portions for the whole thing):
