Making Asian inspired dishes should not be daunting. While it’s true that there are a lot of very complicated recipes for Oriental cuisine, there are likewise a ton of simple recipes you can experiment with while you master the techniques. The trick is to play with the flavors available in your local ethnic aisle and find what you like. Before you know it, your friends will be calling you for take-out orders!
I created this dish for my wife, who has issues with spicy foods (and therefore most off the shelf Asian sauces and glazes.) Plum sauce is very mildly spiced and lends not only a wonderful flavor but a rather intense glaze to this simple stir-fried beef. The ingredient list can be found at any Mega-Mart, prep time is only a few minutes and cook time is nearly instant. Beef in plum sauce is a recipe that will Wow you, I promise!

What I would have done differently had I thought of it at the time:

I think next time I’ll add a bit of garlic and perhaps a bit of chopped prune or dried cranberries. I think that would be a good addition. Feel free to leave a suggestion for beefing up this lovely little beef dish.
