You can definitely add this shrimp in garlic sauce to my list of favorites. This dish is super easy to assemble and so tasty! I mean seriously, can you ever go wrong with onions, bell peppers, and garlic? Not likely. My only complaint was that we didn't have any leftovers. I plan to double the recipe next time.
Yields 4 servings
4 cups water
2 cups (1 Boil-in-Bag) Uncle Ben's brown rice
1 green onion, chopped
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
2 tbsp butter, separated
1 medium red pepper, cut into thin strips
1 medium green pepper, cut into thin strips
1 small onion, cut into thin wedges
3 tsp minced garlic
1 (10 oz) package frozen, peeled and deveined shrimp, thawed
Prepare rice as directed on the box. Drain water and fluff rice. Add green onion and season to taste; cover and set aside.
In a measuring cup, combine broth and cornstarch; stir and set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a wok over medium-high heat. Add peppers, onion, and garlic; cook about 3 minutes or until peppers and onion are crisp-tender. Remove vegetables from wok and drain any liquids that may remain in the pan. Add shrimp and remaining tbsp of butter. Stir-fry for 3 to 4 minutes or until shrimp turn pink.
Push shrimp from the center of the wok. Stir broth mixture; add to the center of the wok. Cook and stir sauce until thickened and bubbly. Return vegetables to the wok and stir to coat all the ingredients with the sauce. Cook and stir about a minute more or until heated through. Serve immediately with rice.
