I love making tasty and nutritious dishes at home; it's much healthier (and more cost-effective!) than going out to eat.
A Crowd Pleaser
Stir-fries are a nutritious and inexpensive way to feed your family. Add a couple of spring rolls to this dish, and it will become a Friday-night favorite.
|Prep time||Cook time||Ready in||Yields|
6 servings (6 ounces per serving)
- 1 small head of cauliflower, cleaned and florets removed
- 6 cloves garlic, as is with top, cut off bulb
- 1 package baby bok choy, cleaned and cut in half
- 2 red bell peppers, julliened
- 1 pound lean ground beef, rolled into balls with garlic inside
- 1 package snow peas, cleaned
- 1 tablespoon each of yellow grainy mustard and soya sauce, on beef
- 4 pinches salt, pepper, hot pepper flakes, added to beef
- Drizzle olive oil, over whole dish
- When the garlic and cauliflower are ready, put them on a flat cooking sheet, drizzle olive oil over them, and place in the oven at 400˚F for 10 minutes.
- While that is roasting, add the mustard, soy sauce, salt, pepper, and hot pepper flakes (or not) to the lean ground beef. Mix in with your hands.
- Take the garlic and cauliflower out of the oven and squeeze out the individual cloves of garlic on a plate. You are going to wrap one of these garlic cloves inside each meatball.
- Cut the bok choy in half. Julienne the red peppers (cut into thin strips). You can add green onions here also. This would really add to this dish, but unfortunately, I cannot eat onions. Cut green onions into strips also. You can choose whether to cut the ends off the snow peas; I don't usually bother with this step.
- Place all ingredients flat on the cooking sheet. Drizzle olive oil and salt/pepper over the whole thing, and place into the oven for 30 minutes at 400˚F.
