1 pound boned beef loin top sirloin steak

1 teaspoon olive oil

1/3 cup lime juice


2 tablespoons hoisin sauce, found in the Asian section of the supermarket

Honey Tips

Honey Is Sweeter Than Sugar

Due to the high level of fructose, honey is 25% sweeter than table sugar.


Cut bell pepper in half lengthwise. Remove seeds and stem. Cut into strips about ¼-inch wide. Set aside.
Trim any fat from steak. Pat meat dry with paper towels. This will help it brown more quickly rather than steam. Slice into strips across the grain, about 1/8-inch thick.
Heat olive oil in a nonstick skillet over a high heat. Add bell pepper to hot oil and cook stirring until crisp tender, about 4 minutes. Spoon peppers into a bowl.
Return pan to heat. Once hot, add beef strips and cook stirring constantly until meat is no longer pink inside, about 3 minutes. Spoon into bowl with peppers.
Return pan to heat. Add remaining ingredients, except cilantro. Bring to a boil and cook a few minutes stirring. Add bell pepper and beef back into sauce and cook just to heat. Season with salt and pepper.
Spoon stir fry over cooked rice and sprinkle with chopped cilantro.
