How to Make Sirloin & Veggie Toss
- If the sirloin is not frozen, then put it in the freezer for about an hour, so that it will be firm enough to slice really thin, about 1/8" thick.
Once the meat is all sliced thinly, spread it out, and season it with 1/2 of the Mrs. Dash Seasoning. Reserve remainder of the seasoning for later, when all veggies are in the pan.
- Clean and slice all your veggies ahead of time, and lay them out on a large cutting board, so they're ready to just dump in, at the right time. Don't want anything to over-cook on this.
- Using a very large skillet, like a Chef's Skillet, or in a large wok, pour the olive oil and let it get hot, over med-hi heat. Add the prepared zucchini & carrots, and stir fry them with two spatulas, two wooden spoons, etc., tossing well, to cook evenly. Toss for about 5 minutes, until the zucchini starts to look a bit cooked, but still very-much crisp-tender.
- Add the garlic, onions, celery, and broccoli florets, and continue to toss until the onions look a little transparent and the broccoli gets that gorgeous bright, emerald green color. Again ... "crisp-tender", don't over cook!
- Pour the beef broth into the hot pan, to sort of "steam" everything, continuing to toss. Push everything aside, to a cooler area of the pan or wok, so it doesn't get over-done. Add the tomatoes now, but don't stir them too much, as you don't want them to break down too quickly. Sprinkle the rest of the Mrs. Dash Seasoning over all the veggies, and give just a gentle toss off to one side of the pan, in a cooler section, not directly in center of the pan.
- At this point, add all the seasoned meat to the center of the pan, the hot spot, and toss it until it is your desired doneness ... I made mine 'medium', but you can cook it all the way thru, if desired. Once the meat was done to my preference, I incorporated it altogether with the veggies ... GENTLY!, and served a huge portion of it into my bowl. I added just a sprinkle of low-sodium soy sauce, barely 1/8-teaspoon.
- Delicious, beautiful!, healthy, low-calorie, high in vegetables and fiber, and it meets the requirements of Day 6 of the Dolly Parton Diet! I'm a happy girl today! :o)
