“What’s Cooking” in Victor’s Kitchen

I am not sure I have ever done two back to back post on what’s cooking in my kitchen. This is the first, and I am in the mood to write and post tonight’s dinner. You must know by now that I like to make simple meal that anyone can cook, but still taste delicious. Tonight’s dinner is one of them.

Preparation time – 10 to 15 minutes depends on how fast you are with the knife!

Cooking time – 10 minutes

Eating time – under 5 minutes! LOL.


300 gm beef strips – smash each strip with the back of a knife until beef is almost flatten, then marinate with 1 tablespoon fish sauce, a pinch of salt and white pepper

1 broccoli head – cut into small bite pieces

2 carrots – cut into thick strips

1 red capsicum – cut into bite pieces

  1. Looks so yummy!!! Can I order a plate?

  2. I like to prepare this also, but have not tried adding corn starch. I guess this would make the sauce thicker. Your dish looks delicious.
