Number Five

As my last post explained I found that my "ONE-DISH MEALS COOKBOOK was divided into three sections - Casseroles, Skillet Dishes and Slow-Cooker Meals. So, I am making one from each group in succession. This is my first of the Skillet group. It is called Spicy Szechuan Beef and Vegetables, but to tell you the truth. THAT IS A BIG LIE.
I had three clerks at the Safeway searching for Scechuan Sauce with no luck. What to do? Give up? Forget it? No, the Julia's would not have given up.
Much to my consternation I purchased a Stir Fry Sauce chosen from the large selection.
The resulting meal was OK, probably not as spicy as it could have been.
