Beef and Greens Stir Fry

It isn't often that I truly totally make up a recipe but tonight I did. I am writing it down fairly quickly so I can remember what I did! Here's what you'll need:

1/2 lb beef stir fry meat cut in strips
1 bunch swiss chard, washed-stems chopped and leaves shredded
1 carton brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in halves (or quarters if large)
4 green onions, washed and cut on bias
2 large mariachi peppers, cut in rings (little less spicy than jalapenos)
3 garlic cloves, sliced

1/4 cup Mandarin orange juice (sub a lot of different juices here)
1/2 soy sauce
1 T brown sugar
1 T siracha sauce
Mix all togther

In wok or skillet, add some vegetable oil and sauté beef for a few minutes. Remove to large bowl. Next throw in the pepper rings, the chard stems,  the onions and brussels sprouts--stirring and cooking maybe 8 minutes or so. toward the end of the cooking time throw in the garlic. Spoon all that mixture out into the bowl with the beef. Add a bit more oil and sauté the shredded chard leaves in two batches until it wilts. Then add back in all the other stuff and heat through and add the sauce and  heat for a few minutes.

Good served over rice.
