I have cousins who love putting sugar on or mixing anything sweet into their savory dishes. I once tasted their sweet sardines with egg noodles. It was quite good and I'm giving it a try tonight on my beef and vegetable soup.
400 g beef sirloin, cut into small strips
2 cups chayote, chopped
200 g Chinese cabbage, cut in 1 inch pieces
400 ml water
2 Tbsp ginger strips
1 Tbsp brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste
Saute beef with onion, garlic, salt and pepper.
Add sugar and stir fry for 1 minute.
Stir in the chayote. Continue to stir fry until chayote is half cooked.
Add the Chinese cabbage.
Pour 400 ml water and simmer for 4-6 minutes or until chayote is fully cooked. You'll know it if it becomes translucent.
