Firenza Fruittura! Carne bovina ~ di albicocca

Price per serving for two: 2.62


You will need to buy sirloin for stir fry, linguine pasta if you don't have it on hand and if you are not able to pick from the garden then stop by your favorite market for a few apricots, green and red pepper and a small slim zucchini. Take your covered skillet and melt in 3 tbs of coconut oil and the same of olive oil. Sprinkle in red pepper flakes, sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder and fresh dried herbs - oregano and mint.

Chop or slice your green and red pepper and zucchini. Add them to the seasoned oils in your skillet and stir fry on med. heat. In the meantime, slice your sirloin into think strips. And, get a stock pot of hot water going for your pasta. Once your veggies are browned, remove your skillet and set aside. Add an additional 1tbs of olive oil to the skillet and lay in your steak strips when the oil begins to spit a bit. Stir fry your sirloin until browned. Pour in 1/4 cup of apricot nectar and then reintroduce the veggies, heat up for 2 min covered; then turning off the heat while you tend to the pasta.

Once the water rolls in a boil, you can add your pasta. Don't forget a pinch of salt. On the side, prepare to saute and caramelize a few fresh apricots in butter and 1 tsp of olive oil.

When the pasta is tender, drain and ladle onto a large low lipped serving dish. Top with your stir fry and serve, garnished with apricots and fresh green parsley.
