Beef And Onion Stir-Fry

Serves: 4

This recipe is from the February issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray magazine.


6 tablespoons olive oil

6 cloves garlic, chopped

½ cup fish sauce

1½ tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon black pepper

¼ teaspoon salt

1½ pounds beef tenderloin, cut into 1½-inch cubes

2 yellow onions, quartered and layers separated

¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves


In a large bowl, combine 3 tablespoons of the olive oil with the garlic, fish sauce, sugar, pepper and salt. Stir until the sugar and salt are dissolved. Add the beef and toss to coat. Marinate for 20 minutes. In a large, heavy skillet, heat the remaining olive oil over high heat until smoking. Add the onions and sauté until slightly softened, about four minutes. Strain the beef, discarding the marinade. Add the meat to the skillet and cook, tossing, for six to seven minutes for medium-rare.
