Stir-fried beef with water spinach

STIR – FRIED WATER SPINACH WITH GARLIC
(and beef)


Water spinach is native to southeast Asia, and is considered poor man’s food in Vietnam because it grows plentifully in swamps and named in Vietnamese as Rau muong. Rau muong is readily available in Asian grocery stores, quite inexpensive, and cooks in minutes. The hardest part is taking the time to pluck the hollowed stews into sections.
Preparation
(Serve 2 portion)
1/2kg of water spinach
Just remove the bottom few inches of stem, where it can tend to be woody. Wash and set aside.
Mashed garlic (Mashed garlic gives more flavor than minced one).
200 gram of sliced beef
Marinate the beef with ½ tea spoon of salt and ¼ tea spoon of black peper.
Cooking
Heat vegetable oil in a wok or sauté pan, add garlic. When the garlic has a good smell and turns yellow-brown, add Rau muong and toss. Rau muong should only take a few minutes to just wilt and will reduce greatly in volume.
Heat another wok or sauté pan with a spoon of vegetable oil, add one glove of mashed garlic till garlic turns yellow-brown. Add the marinated beef and stir-fry about 2 minutes, just turn the beef into brown.
Pour the cooked beef over the finished spinach then serve with steamed rice
