There's something about good Chinese takeout. I can taste that slightly spicy and velvety, finely-sliced beef and the crisp, crunchy broccoli with a hint of ginger maybe. Followed by satisfying, sticky rice to cleanse the palate.

1 lb hanger steak, thinly sliced against the grain
1/4 c rice wine vinegar
1/4 c peanut oil - or any neutral oil with a high smoking point
12 oz chopped broccoli or chopped green asparagus
6 Tbsp soy sauce
1/4 c oyster sauce
1 Tbsp Sambal oelek - or your favorite chili sauce
2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh ginger - optional
2 c rice
2 (with a chance of leftovers)

Gazpacho is an absolutely perfect appetizer (or light main course) on a hot summer day. Today, there are many "traditional" recipes out there. My recipe is not traditional...it's original and adjustable and works with ingredients we already have in our essential pantry. All we need are some fresh tomatoes and a cucumber from your garden or farmer's market. It's more of an idea of a recipe for you to make your own.

2 lbs tomatoes, cored and chopped
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
1 red bell pepper, cored, deseeded, and chopped
1 shallot, peeled and chopped
1/2 c extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
3 slices stale baguette
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp salt, more to taste
4 appetizers (plus 2 Bloody Marys)
