The title is brief. The food is simple. An old recipe with a new twist. Broccoli "Beef" Stir-fry (this is the old part) with Peanut Sauce (that's the new part).

I recently bought a bag of partially defatted peanut flour at Trader Joe's.

It's been sitting on my kitchen counter waiting to be used. I had no idea what to do with it until last nights meal. I was already making Broccoli "Beef", so I thought a peanut sauce could only make it taste better...and I have the bag of peanut flour, what's the worst that could happen??? Ummmmmmmmm, how about I LOVE it and now I want more? It was as simple as taking a 1/4 cup of the flour, mixing it with some soy sauce, chili pepper flakes, vinegar and a little bit of water to thin it out. Make your Broccoli Beef as you normally would (mine is simple...broccoli, onion and Gardein Beef-Less Tips). Cook the broccoli, onions, beef and whatever else you feel like adding. When the broccoli beef is almost done cooking pour the peanut sauce over everything, cover and cook for 5 more minutes. Stir to mix well and serve over rice, garnish with some peanuts for fun. It was really good, the only down side is that I hear Trader Joe's is discontinuing carrying peanut flour. Which means I will have to stock up, and you should run out and buy some too before it's all gone!

So I'm curious...I have never heard of peanut flour...is this how they really make peanut sauce in restaurants, etc.? What else would you make with peanut flour?...were there recipes on the back of the bag? What is peanut flour?...is it regular flour with a peanut flavor, or is it actually ground up peanuts?...I would have thought ground up peanuts would turn into peanut butter. Hmmmm...loved that you made me think this morning! :0)

This sounds really yummy. I am a HUGE fan of stir fry because it is so easy, yet packed with flavor. The peanut flavor sounds like the right touch.
