When I find myself in the midst of obsessing over the latest recipe trend or craze, I've noticed it's helpful to take a step back and return to the basics, to the familiar things of the kitchen. This dish is a simple one from my childhood. I'm not quite sure if it's a traditional Chinese dish or one originating as an experiment. In my parents' kitchen, you never knew what you would get - whether something traditional or an experimental concoction. This beef and tomato stir fry is an easy dish, especially for anyone looking for a quick meal. A few ingredients, some stirs in the pot, and you have a flavorful dish that pops on the tongue. Add eggs if you want a little extra protein and an additional layer of flavor. It's not the prettiest meal, but it is sure to please!
