Mexican Mandarin Stirfry (July 25, 2001)

Therese and Dan Taylor are two of our favourite people in the world! Creators and owners of the Dan T's Inferno line of sauces, this talented young couple somehow juggle their internationally growing company with three young children and a passion for travel. It almost goes without saying that they love food and wine and, perhaps even more, love to share it with friends.

The Mexican stirfry recipe is flavoured with one of their newer products in the Dan T line, Mexicana Mandarin Sauce. We loved this dish too – it's quick, easy and colourful. You can serve it to guests on the deck or to your famished but picky kids. Better make a double batch, you'll be serving seconds of this one!

Mexican Mandarin Stirfry

Tasty, healthy and hearty! For a more formal meal, serve on a bed of rice with a side of chilled cole slaw.

Tony Recommends...

an off-dry white such as Vouvray Demi-Sec or a Riesling Kabinett. Also worth trying: a White Zinfandel or other California blush.

In a wok or frying pan, stir-fry onion, peppers and garlic in 1 Tbs. (15 mL) oil for 3 minutes, or till tender-crisp. Remove to plate. Stir fry meat in 1 Tbs. oil, soy sauce and zest for 3 minutes, or until white and cooked through. Add Mexicana Mandarin, veggies and cilantro, stir together and heat through. Serve on rice or wrap in tortillas.

Have you tried the Taylors' Medusa's Shrimp and Feta? You're in for a treat!
