Spicy Beef Stir-Fry

Ever have those nights where your refrigerator is packed with food, but you can't figure out what on earth to make for dinner? Happens to the best of us, I feel like I am just eating the same things over and over again, which essentially I think we all are, just prepared in various ways. Sometimes, though, it is the simplest ideas that often allude us. For instance, stir fry is one of the easiest dinners to make, but for some reason I just hadn't really tried it in a while. Well here is my recipe, and its very versatile so just use whatever you have on hand:

1 medium to large flank steak, sliced into long pieces
mustard powder
garlic powder
coriander seed

1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 pkg mushrooms
2 cloves garlic
1 fresh jalepeño
1/2 onion
*if you don't like spicy omit the jalenpeño.

Slice all of your veggies into strips, and sauté in a large pan on med-high heat until soft and onions are translucent, cover pan for this to go faster.

While they are cooking down take your steak and lay out on the cutting board. Cover top of steak with your seasonings until the top is well covered with a layer of seasonings. Slice into strips.

Take the veggies out when soft and set aside.

Put the strips of steak into the hot pan and make sure they don't stick to one another. These will cook very fast and you do not want to overcook the steak and have it be hard and chewy. Only keep the steak in the pan until both sides are brown, then turn off the heat. Throw the veggies back into the pan with the steak and stir until combined, or you can serve separately.
