Beef and Potato Stir Fry
Not another potato dish!!! (Is what I’m sure you’re thinking right now). Hear me out, please.
First, in lieu of rice at Christmas, I intend to make potatoes the main dish. So what you see is me testing (and tasting) potato recipes to enable me (and maybe some of you) make a firm choice.
Secondly, I happened to buy 1 basket of potatoes, HACE (my husband), not knowing I bought some, brought in 2 baskets of potatoes on the same day! I’m literally swimming in potatoes!
This dish is really easy- the hardest thing here is cutting the meat into strips (is there a machine for that?). It’s a strong contender for Christmas lunch. It packs a wallop of flavours and taste, and it will be perfectly paired with my coconut coleslaw and peppered chicken. Delicioso!
