Mar 4: Breakfast Burrito; Stir-Fried Beef With Snap Peas and Oyster Sauce with Brown Rice


For no other reason than we wanted burrito’s for lunch we drove down and picked up two breakfast burritos from our favorite place.

A burrito is now $7.20 with tax.


In every box of Prather Ranch meat, we get “fajita” beef: a quick cook, stir fry meat. We frequently do a stir fry with broccoli, but tonight Greg found a new recipe to try: Stir-Fried Beef With Snap Peas and Oyster Sauce.

We made the recipe for two, but putting in the full amount of oyster sauce in the sauce made the result a little salty. We should have balanced the sauce component to match the reduced amounts of meat and peas. WE substituted snow peas for sugar snap.

  • The ‘fajita’ beef cost $10.07 or $5.04 per serve
  • Snow peas add $1.00 per serve
  • The various sauce and marinade ingredients add $1.00 per serve
  • Rice adds 50c per serve.

Dinner tonight was good, but less oyster sauce would have been better balanced. Dinner cost $7.54 per serve.
