8 oz beef tenderloin, thinly sliced
2 1/2 tablespoons cooking oil
3 stalks scallion, cut into 2-inch strips
1/2 onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon corn starch
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon Chinese Shaoxing wine (or dry sherry)
2 teaspoons oyster sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon dark soy sauce
3 dashes white pepper powder
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon sugar or to taste
Salt to taste
Marinate the beef slices with all the ingredients in Marinade for 10 minutes.
Heat up a wok with 1 tablespoon of oil and stir-fry the marinated beef until they are half-done. Dish out and set aside. Drain the bloody water from the beef.
Heat up the remaining oil and stir-fry the garlic and onion until aromatic. Add the beef back into the wok and do a few quick stirs before adding the Sauce. Continue to stir-fry until the beef slices are completely cooked, then add the scallions into the wok. Do a few quick stirs, add salt and more sugar to taste, dish out and serve hot with steamed rice.
I’m not a big fan of dill, so I reduced it to half a tablespoon. Served with venison backstrap, it’s quite tasty.
- 2 lbs new potatoes
- ½ Tbsp sea salt for boiling potatoes + ½ tsp more for seasoning the sauce
- 1 Tbsp olive oil or butter
- ½ medium onion, finely diced
- 1 garlic clove, pressed
- ¾ cup heavy whipping cream
- ¼ cup fresh dill, chopped
- How to cook new potatoes:
- Scrub each potato clean with a scouring pad (or the abrasive side of a dish sponge). New potatoes have a very thin skin. You don’t have to scrub all of it off, just get at least half of it off.
- Leave bite-sized potatoes whole and cut larger ones in halves or quarters so they are about 1″ thick pieces. Place potatoes in a pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, add ½ Tbsp salt and boil for 15-20 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork. Drain potatoes.
- In a separate pan, add 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add finely diced onion and saute over medium heat until golden and soft. Add 1 pressed garlic clove and sauté another minute, stirring constantly. Add ¾ cup heavy whipping cream and ½ tsp salt, or add salt to taste, bring to a boil and let simmer an additional 2 minutes. Stir in ¼ cup chopped fresh dill then remove from heat and pour sauce over potatoes. Toss potatoes in sauce until evenly coated. Cover with lid to keep warm until ready to serve.
- 1 leftover hambone
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, minced

- Heat olive oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add garlic, onion, carrots and potato. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions have become translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in ham stock, beans, corn, thyme and bay leaves; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10-12 minutes. Stir in ham until heated through, about 1-2 minutes.
