Beef and cabbage stir fry with peanut sauce

A mild peanut sauce flavors this dish. You can add a couple of splashes of hot sauce if you like! Serve over Chinese egg noodles.

Beef & Cabbage Stir Fry with Peanut Sauce

1/4 c smooth peanut butter
1/4 c soy sauce
1/3 c orange juice
1 T rice vinegar
2 t sugar

Canola oil
2 - 3 cloves garlic, minced
1 - 2 carrots, sliced thin
1 lb thin cubed steak, sliced in thin strips
1/2 - 1 head Savoy cabbage, sliced thin

Roasted peanuts for garnish, if desired

Chinese egg noodles

Start water boiling for the noodles. In a bowl, whisk the peanut butter through the sugar until smooth. Heat oil in a wok and cook the garlic for about a minute. Add the carrots and cook till softened. Add the beef and brown it all around. Dump the garlic, carrots, and meat into the bowl with the sauce. Add more oil to the wok and stir fry the cabbage, adding a few T of water to make steam and wilt the cabbage. Add the beef and sauce mixture to the wok and heat through. Serve over noodles.
