I pretty much drank most of my calories this past summer in the form of white wine. I did little cooking. I've decided to change my eating habits in attempt to eat low fat, low'ish calorie food, while avoiding (un)complex carbohydrates. This is my almost 31-year-old lifelong battle of the belly bulge. Some of you might think I'm speaking crazy-talk (as we like to politely point out to each other), but I'm an apple; I've got skinny legs, a tiny butt, yet pack all my excess calories in my belly.
In the future, my posts may look less delicious and a good amount more boring. However, in effort to keep up MadebyMariko, I'm going to attempt to share my cooking journey in it's weight loss phase. I hope you stick around.
The above recipe is from the October 2010 issue of Bon Appetit in their Fast and Fresh section. The step-by-step recipe can be found here. The recipe is called "Beef, Shiitake, and Snow Pea Stir-Fry."
I cooked the veg separately from the lean beef (because I wanted to ensure a medium rare of the beef to avoid overcooking and thus tasting dry from the lack of fat in the beef...). I added broccoli rabe to the recipe for low-calorie, uber-healthy filler. Hoisin, srichacha, fresh ginger, soy, and small amount of sesame oil flavoured this dish without a lot of fat.
