It’s a great time to make small changes that make a difference in your health. It could something as small as using brown rice instead of white rice or using Mazola® Corn Oil in place of olive oil. A clinical study showed Mazola® Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about this claim, visit Mazola.com. Mazola Corn Oil is an all-purpose, cholesterol free cooking oil that is a smart heart-healthy* choice for your family. *See Mazola.com for more information on the relationship between corn oil and heart health. It has a variety of uses include baking, grilling, sautéing, stir frying, or mixing up a marinade or dressing. I’ve started making small changes in the meals that I prepare for my family and one small change is to eat more vegetables. I typically try to add a vegetable along every meal with breakfast being the exception. One easy way that I ensure that we are eating enough vegetables is by making meals that I grew up eating like Beef and Bora. Beef and Bora is one of my favorite meals. Bora is also known as Chinese long beans, snake beans or Florida long beans and can be found at Asian grocery stores and farmer’s markets. It’s similar in flavor to string beans and the texture is a bit heartier, it’s great to use in stews, fried rice and stir-fries. Apart from being tasty beef and Bora is also a quick dish that’s ready in less than 30 minutes! Since this is a quick recipe it is important to use the right cut of beef. I used top sirloin and sliced it thinly against the grain. It’s important to slice the meat against the grain, so that it will be tender and easy to eat once cooked. Tri-tip, rib eye, and tenderloin are also great cuts of beef to use as well. Beef and bora is best enjoyed over rice.
