I wasn’t super original this time around. I found this recipe from Bon Appetit and altered it a bit to suit what I had in the fridge. I added shallots and shaved brussels sprouts to the pan and cooked them down with a cup of sherry before adding the meat. I find sherry really adds a lot of flavor.
To get a nice thin slices of sprouts, use a mandolin. Trust me. It’s not the easiest thing to use on sprouts since they’re so small, but it gave them a nice thin slice and it looked like confetti when I was done. Makes for a beautiful garnish to top the steak stir fry.

I wasn’t too sure how this would turn out since the two ingredients, like last months Onions and Bananas, were so out of the ballpark. But, the steak stir fry was quite good. You can taste the sweetness of the pears and it gives you a bit of a kick with the red pepper flakes.
