Szechuan Steak Stir Fry
with white rice

This recipe is one of our favorites, and it pairs beautifully with a good red wine! Start with some high-quality New York Strip steak. Sure, it's usually a little more expensive but preparing it this way helps stretch it out. (We usually end up with left-overs for the next day's lunch).
