Beths Note: Amarillo is a town of about 175,000 people in the middle of the panhandle of Texas. Visitors expect great steaks, ranch style barbecue and red-hot Tex-Mex cooking along the Texas stretch of Interstates 40 and 27. But Amanllo restaurants offer other treasures as well, thanks to the influence of newer Texans from Indochina and Asia. Cafes with names such as the Thai Star, My Thai, Peking and Hunan have taught Texans that jalapenos are not the only way to turn on your taste buds. --Food Editor, Amarillo Globe-News, Amarillo Heat butter or oil in heavy skillet or wok over high heat. Add meat 2 or 3 batches, so that each batch just covers the bottom of skillet without crowding; brown meat. Remove browned meat from skillet and set aside. Reduce heat. Add onions; saute 5 minutes.
