Southwestern Beef Strips


A stir-fry and a pasta dish in one – it’s going to be a favorite at our house.  In the time I boiled water, I had my ingredients cut up and assembled, and in the time it took to cook the fettuccine, the stir fry was done.   If you don’t have taco seasoning mix, some chili powder is good.  I used red peppers from our garden – but I also freeze them and use them all winter in dishes like this.  I usually have all these ingredients on hand, so this is almost a pantry meal for us.               
Southwestern Beef Strips
  1 1/ 2 Pounds  Beef Sirloin Steak -- cut in thin strips
  1         Medium  Onion -- sliced

In large skillet or wok, stir-fry the beef, onion, red pepper, taco seasoning, salt and pepper in oil until meat is no longer pink.
Stir in the beans, corn, picante sauce and cilantro and heat through.  Serve with fettuccine if desired.
(I cooked 9 ounces dry fettuccine).
