Before you start
You will need a wok or frying pan.
Put the serving dish in the oven at the lowest setting to keep the meat warm while the vegetables cook.
- Prepare the vegetables : Cut the peppers into 1 cm-wide strips; slice the zucchini into thin rounds; quarter the mushrooms; halve the onion then cut it into 1 cm wedges; mince the garlic; dice the tomatoes. Cut the meat into strips, 1 cm wide and about 5 cm long.
- Heat half of the oil in a large frying-pan or wok over medium-high heat. Sauté the meat in batches, so as not to overcrowd the pan. Cook the meat until it browns, but is not completely cooked through, 3-4 min total. Remove the meat from the pan then set aside on the warmed serving plate in the oven.
- Pour the remaining oil into the pan, then add the onion and sauté 2 min until it starts to soften. Add the peppers and continue to cook, tossing often, until they begin to brown and soften, about 5 min. Add the zucchini and mushrooms, then sauté, with frequent tossing, about 3 min. Add the garlic and tomatoes. Cook 1-2 min, with stirring, then season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook an additional 2 min until the vegetables are cooked al dente.
- Put the meat back into the pan. Cook, with tossing, about 1-2 min. Adjust the seasoning then serve.
