Beef with Soy and Lime, and a Grapefruit and Ginger Salsa
First, make the salsa. Put all the ingredients in a bowl, stir, and taste. Add a little black pepper, if you wish. Set aside.
Heat the oil in a wok over a high heat until hot. Add the onion, and stir-fry for about 5 minutes until soft, before adding the beef strips and chilli. Continue to stir-fry for another 5 minutes or so, keeping everything moving in the wok. Add the soy, lime juice, and honey, and keep stir-frying.
Throw in the mushrooms, and stir-fry for a few minutes until they are soft and begin to release their juices.
To serve, pile the coriander on top of the beef, and serve immediately with rice or noodles, and the grapefruit salsa.
