Spicy Beef Stir-Fry

今朝、今週分の Hello Fresh の配達がありました。先週は珍しく全部揃っていましたが、今週は3つも忘れられたものがありました。その中でも1つはスパイスミックスなので、それがないと出来上がりが全く違うものになってしまいます。相変わらず、人間なのでミスもあると言われ、驚きです、とほほ。一言多い、っちゅうの。この食材配達で今は本当に助かっていますし、きっといつもにもまして仕事量が多いのだということはよくわかりますが、間違いがない時の方が珍しいという仕事ぶりは感心できません。

There was a delivery for this week from Hello Fresh this morning.  Last week, there was no mistake, which is very rare, but this week there were 3 things they forgot to include.  One of them is a spice mixture, without which the dish isn’t what it should be at all.  As always, they had to say they were only human and they would make mistakes.  Really?  Why can’t they apologise properly and leave it at that rather than always adding they are only human?  We are very grateful for this service, specially under the current situation, and understand they probably have a lot more work to do, but they make so many mistakes.  More often than not they forget something.



We change beddings on Mondays.  As we have only one set of super king size beddings, we need to wash, dry and iron on the day so we can use them by the end of the day and I was still ironing when it was time for us to start cooking so my husband cooked the dinner alone.  I think it was the first time for him to cook something Asian alone.

今日の夕食は、Hello Fresh の「Spicy Beef Stir-Fry (with Noodles, Green Pepper and Peanuts)」(スパイシーなビーフの炒め物、ヌードル、グリーンペッパー、ピーナッツと)。ビーフの細切りを炒めてタイスパイスミックスを加えてさらに炒め取り出し、赤玉ねぎ、グリーンペッパー、ニンニクを炒め、ホイシンソース、醤油、お水を加えたところに茹でた麺を加えて沸騰したらビーフを戻し、シャンツァイを加えて盛り付けてからピーナッツと青ネギを散らす、というもの。ビーフが一部かなり硬かったですが味はよかったですし、全体にとても美味しかったです。ホイシンソースとお醤油は全部は加えず少し残してちょうど良かったです。味付けが大抵濃いめなので、調味料は少し残すくらいがわたしたちにはちょうど良いです。スパイスはタイスパイスとあります。

Today’s dinner that my husband cooked was “Spicy Beef Stir-Fry (with Noodles, Green Pepper and Peanuts)“.  Stir-fry beef, add spice and stir-fry a few more minutes and take them out.  Stir-fry red onion, green pepper, then garlic, then add Hoisin Sauce, Soy Sauce and water.  When it bubbles up, add beef back, add coriander.  Plate it, sprinkle peanuts and green onion and it’s done.  Some of the beef was very chewy but others were OK and tasted very good, we really enjoyed it.  We didn’t use all of the Hoisin Sauce or Soy Sauce, but kept some behind because their seasonings tend to be too salty for us and it was just right.
