Rick's low sodium beef stir fry Preparation
Cut carrot into thin slices about 2 inches long. Quarter onion lengthwise so it will break apart while cooking and thinly slice the garlic cloves.
For this dish I use cheaper cuts of steak and slice them in 3/4 inch strips, I then turn them on their edge and slice them in thin slices across the grain.
In a 10 inch frying pan saute the onion, garlic and carrot in the olive oil until the onion starts to become transparent. Add the beef slices, water and worchestershire sauce. Cook until carrots start to become tender. If the dish starts to dry out to much more water can be added.
Add peas, tomatoes, peanuts, flax seeds and mushrooms, continue to cook stirring frequently until peas and mushrooms are done.

I only gave it 4 stars because after all there is nearly no salt. I used a no salt cajun seasoning mix to compensate for the lack of salt and it improved it. But then I was/am a saltaholic and I expect my taste will change in time.
