Honey Tips

Honey Never Spoils

No need to refrigerate it. It can be stored unopened, indefinitely, at room temperature in a dry cupboard.


In a bowl mix soy sauce with sesame oil, garlic, honey and crushed red pepper. Stir in beef, cover and marinate for 20 minutes.
Heat a heavy skillet on high. Add 1 Tablespoon oil and stir-fry ginger until brown, about 45 seconds. Add the mushrooms and cook about 2 minutes.
Add another 1 Tablespoon oil and stir-fry beef with marinade until just brown, about 2 minutes. Transfer mixture to a plate. Set aside.
In the same pan add remaining oil. Saute broccoli and red bell pepper for 2 minutes on high. Cover and cook the vegetables for about 7 minutes. Add beef mixture to vegetable mixture. Stir-fry over high to heat through for about 1 minute. Serve over rice.
