beef tenderloin in balsamic vinegar
i have become a fan of balsamic vinegar. it's amazing how it adds so much flavor.
this dish is so easy to make...it takes less than 30 minutes...it's a food to go meal. also you can just prepare this a day earlier and when you need it..just a quick stir fry and viola~a perfect meal with rice...hmm i love quick to go meals~i have this thing of conjuring last to minute dishes with whatever i crave for at the moment~that is, hopefully i have the ingredients in our pantry..^^
150 gms. thinly sliced beef (freeze to cut easily)
6 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
5 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. black pepper, ground
2 pcs. bay leaves
1 clove garlic ( i simply love garlic!)
3 tbsp. olive oil.
1. Marinate the thinly sliced beef in balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, honey and black pepper. Leave up to 2 hrs. or overnight.
2. Heat pan with olive oil. Saute garlic and add the marinated sliced beef.
3. Stir fry the beef for 3 minutes and then add the marinade.
4. Cook for another 10 minutes or until the beef has become tender and the marinade reduced into a syrupy sauce.
5. Serve hot with rice.
