This has been my best gardening year yet! It is growing and producing like crazy. I almost cannot keep up!
This was my first year growing soon new items, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts and tomatillos and they are all doing so well! I may have planted way too many, but good thing you can freeze or can most of them!
The other night for dinner I made an elk stir fry with garden snap peas and broccoli, wow the flavors were amazing, its crazy the taste difference is when produce is fresh and grown yourself. Another plus is the grocery bill has been quite a bit less, since I have been harvesting from the garden.
Another first this year was growing garlic; my mother in law gave me a box to plant in the fall. I harvested it last weekend, and produced 183 bulbs! My garage smells like a garlic factory but it will keep the vampires at bay.
- 500g venison steak, you can use beef or pork, cut into strips
- 1 tbsp gluten free soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon cooking oil
- 1 head of broccoli florets
- 1 cup snap peas
- 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1 tsbp gluten free soy sauce
- 1teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 1/2 tablespoons oyster sauce, gluten free
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
- Salt & black pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup chicken broth, I use homemade
- In a medium bowl, add the strips on meat and 1 tbsp of soy sauce. Let sit for 10 to 30min
- Steam the broccoli & peas for 10min, then immediately rinse under cold water & set aside
- In a small bowl mix together the remaining ingredients & set aside
- Heat a non stick pan or wok on high heat, add cooking oil. The pan needs to be hot enough that you start seeing a little bit of smoke rising; quickly add the meat to the pan. You want the meat to spear & brown cooking until the meat is no longer pink. About 1 to 2. Note wild game usually has a lot more water in it. Drain the water off, then pour in the sauce. Stirring constantly, until the sauce boils and thickens - about 30 seconds. If the sauce gets too thick add more water or broth. Stir in the veggies and mixture.
- Serve immediately over rice or noodles & garnish with green onions
