Cooking doesn't have to be difficult, this super easy stir-fried leeks with beef is an example. Minimal ingredients used yet super delicious. I used leftover beef here but you can use a small piece of beef and thinly slice it and marinate it to make this a quick stir-fry.
Leek is in the Allium family, together with onion and garlic. Not only it is low in calories, anti-oxidant but it also provides lots of health benefits and vitamins and minerals. I don't buy leek all the times because lots of veggies that we eat are also very nutritious but I certainly include leeks occasionally into our diet. I am thriving for a variety of vegetables that have different health benefits and try to mix and match them every week.
2 American leeks, diagonally slice and place in a colander. Wash and rinse under running water, makes sure to clean all the dirt hiding inside.
1/2 bowl of thinly sliced beef, marinated with 1 tsp. soy sauce, 1 tsp. sugar, white pepper, sesame oil and potato starch/ cornstarch
Fish sauce to taste
1 tsp. sugar
1. Heat up your wok. When hot, add in your choice of cooking oil. Add in beef and stir-fry until almost cooked. Add in leeks and stir-fry until soften.
2. Season with fish sauce (about 1 Tbsp.) and sugar. Mix well and serve on a plate.
