    Libido-Boosting Stir-Fry

             libido-beef-stir-fry

The zinc in the lean beef gives you a boost of testosterone (not fat), which is key to a healthy female libido. But more important, this low-fat and filling meal brings all your favorite Japanese flavors into one dish. 

Calories: 318

    Prep: 20 minutes; Marinate: 15 minutes; Cook: 17 minutes.

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings (serving size: 1 3/4 cups stir-fry)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound skirt steak 
  • garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • bell peppers, sliced
  • onion, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 1/2 cups diagonally cut asparagus
  • 1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cashews

Preparation

Cut steak crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick strips. Toss together with garlic, and 2 tablespoons lime juice; marinate the steak for 15 minutes. Heat 1/2 teaspoon olive oil in a wok or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the steak with the marinade, stirring constantly, for 2-3 minutes or until medium-rare; transfer with slotted spoon to a large bowl, and set aside. Add bell peppers and onion to the wok; cook, stirring, for about 7 minutes or until just tender. Transfer the pepper-and-onion mixture to a bowl with the steak. Add 1/2 teaspoon olive oil and asparagus to wok; cook, stirring, for about 4 minutes or until tender. Put the pepper-onion-and-steak mixture back into the wok. Add ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, and 1 tablespoon lime juice to wok; cook, stirring, for about 2 minutes or until heated through. Add cooked brown rice to the wok; heat for 2 minutes. Divide the stir-fry among 4 plates, and distribute chopped cilantro and chopped cashews evenly on top; serve.

I absolutely love stir fry!

I might have to try something similar to this.  I don't even care if it's a libido boost or not.  This is probably a very tasty dish
