Seaweed salad

Marinade Ingredients:

2 cloves garlic chopped

Sea salt

Black pepper

Ponzu sauce

Sriracha sauce

I really like this meal after a long day of work. It doesn’t take that long to pull off. The only thing that I didn’t have was the seaweed salad. But I was able to pick some up at my neighborhood grocery store because they have a sushi bar section. So I literally walked in the door put the rice on in my rice cooker. Diced the tuna steaks and marinated it in the marinade ingredients for 30 minutes. I tossed tuna in some sesame seeds as a garnish. Then I assembled the ingredients in a bowl… remember rice at the bottom.

6 cloves garlic chopped

2 tablespoons red pepper powder

1/2 bottle of Kikkoman Orange sauce

Salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup of water

Let your beef slightly unthaw. It’s easier to slice it thin that way. In a large wok on medium, saute onions, garlic, ginger, and peppers in vegetable oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Next add beef and and pour in orange sauce. Continue to toss. Sprinkle more salt, pepper and red pepper powder. Pour in water. Allow it to simmer for a few minutes. Then toss some more. Once the beef and vegetables are almost done finally add the tomatoes. Toss for a couple of minutes and make sure not to overcook them. They should still retain their form. Serve with rice.
