Sauté — medium — IT 145°F
Bruce Lee fast but without the toughness. The secret to stir-fry tenderness is a quality cut—sirloin or similar—sliced across the grain into bite-size strips. Marinate for whatever time you’ve got, hours, minutes, or not at all. Sauté in peanut oil over medium-high heat until barely done, maybe 2 minutes per side. The USDA says shoot for an IT of 145°F, but we get them off the heat sooner rather than later; they’ll cook a little more as you season them. Drizzle with soy sauce, top with chopped parsley and crushed peanuts, and add some crushed red pepper for an extra kick.
(When in doubt, add butter and/or salt.)
