I make an easy and tasty Chinese Beef and Broccoli dish fairly often. Last month, I was planning to make it for dinner one night and thought, I wonder what would happen if I cooked it in the SunOven?
This was quite a "wild" idea, (look at me.... I'm sooo wild and crazy!) since this is normally a quick meal, and everything is sautéed, but curiosity got the better of me and here's how it went down:
I cooked the beef 1 hour and added the broccoli for a 2nd hour.
Cooked rice 1 hour- added it's pot on top when I added the broccoli. (cooked them stacked)
Th beef was great! really tender. After looking at it when I added the broccoli, I'm sure it was done after the first hour, but it didn't burn or taste overdone or anything after a second! (as the "SunOven people" tout...) The broccoli was fine, but a bit softer than I typically like- maybe try only 30 minutes next time?
The sticky rice was mostly fine, but I dished mine out last and I got an occasional crunch- Jay didn't though. Not sure why...
