Beef & Sweet Potato Stir Fry ala Clean Eating

As I stated in the video (to be attached later due to technical difficulties), I was inspired by a recipe in the July/August issue of Clean Eating magazine. Since I changed a number of items, so I can not say how great the exact recipe was but I will tell you this: what I made below is fantastic!!

1 lb. eye round beef, sliced 1/8 -inch thick, then cut into 1 inch strips
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
1 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
2 cups sweet potatoes diced into 1 inch chunks
1 cup frozen green beans
1 red pepper, sliced
1 tsp olive oil

Sorry for quality but they were eating it all so fast that I ran out in the dark to take a photo

1. In a large bowl, mix sesame oil, orange juice, soy sauce, garlic & ground ginger together and then add beef. I then placed in the refrigerator to marinate for an hour.

2. Bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Add sweet potato and cook 5 to 7 minutes, until soft but firm. Remove the potatoes using a slotted spoon ad set aside. Do not discard the water but instead return to a boil and add frozen green beans for approx. 4 minutes. You want them soft but firm. Drain.

3. Add olive oil to a large wok or skillet over medium high heat. Once hot, add the beef mixture and onion, tossing quickly until done, about 3 minutes. The toss in the sweet potatoes and beans. Cook a minute and serve. Yum!

With the OJ and the sweet potatoes, this is a stir-fry without the cloyingly thick and sweet sauces we usually find. It looks fantastic (even if you had to take a pic in the dark!) I need to use sweet potatoes in more savory dishes rather than in the usual dessert (mmmm, pie) recipes - this looks like a winner!

Clean Eating Magazine is the best! I have never been disappointed in a recipe. I actually just purchased her newest Eat Clean Diet book and should get it any day, yippee!!

Yay for more and more sweet potatoes. This is a good idea for a meal.
