Chinese Beef Recipe

We all seemed to be in the mood for Asian food but we just did not have the time to go the distance to the nearest Chinese Buffet; so we decided to do the next best thing and cook our own. Really I think you could argue the point that the homemade is better, at least you know what’s going in it.

This Chinese Beef Recipe is not a lot different than many stir fry recipes. It is just cooked a little different. I thought the addition of fresh tomatoes was a nice addition because I usually don’t see them in this type of dish.

The next time you’re in the mood for Asian food, put this homemade Chinese Beef Recipe on the menu; it’s really good.
