Smoked Tri Tip and Broccoli Stir Fry
Smoked Tri Tip and Broccoli Stir Fry - Always working for new recipes to use leftover smoked Tri Tip. With just the two of us there are always plenty of leftovers needing to be used in imaginative ways. Took out a frozen vacuumed sealed package of Hickory smoked Prime grade sliced Tri Tip roast to use for this recipe. The Tri Tip was smoked, vacuum sealed and frozen about 9 months ago ... yup!! 9 months and it was just as good if not better than the day I cooked the Tri Tip. It was so tender that I was able to easily tear it apart with my fingers. Vacuum sealing really keeps the meat fresh.
When ordering Chinese I usually select Beef & Broccoli so it's no surprise that I decided to put my own twist on a Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry recipe. I didn't know what to expect but it turned out simply marvelous!! The key was waiting till the last minute to put the meat in the stir fry ...
I used a Beef & Broccoli dry mix for the sauce mixed with ¾ of a cup of water and 2 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce. Used my wok to stir fry the broccoli florets, mushrooms, onions, and some zucchini squash. Throw in your favorite veggies but remember that the main dish is broccoli based. Stir fried the vegetables until al dente. Poured in the sauce and cooked for a minute or two allowing the sauce to thicken. As previously stated, add the smoked tri tip meat, broken up into bite sizes, and finish the thickening of the sauce. Serve right away over steamed white rice. Enjoy ... I will definitely be doing this again! I have lots of vacuumed smoked tri tip, chicken, pork roast, etc in my freezer and I'll be looking into using some of it for other stir fry recipes.
