Cocoa Beef Stir-Fry

by on December 9, 2010 · 7 comments

Well, today is my last day visiting The Hershey Company.  I’ll be glad to get home to Todd & Fuzz,  but I’m going to miss all this chocolate bliss and hope to come back with the family in the near future.  Can I tell you how excited I was when I found out I was going to Hershey?  I went crazy using Hershey’s products and even incorporated them into dinner.

Here’s one particularly good beef dish I made with Hershey’s cocoa.  It was savory and colorful and all-around great, but I will admit to making one change.  I  stirred in about 2 teaspoons of sugar. If you make it, wait until the end, taste it, then make your decision. I think the sugar lifted the flavors, but they didn’t put it in the original recipe.

I love chocolate in savory dishes! Like a mole sauce or something. Nice!

Sounds like an interesting combination! I haven’t tried cocoa with anything other than a mole sauce, but it sounds like it’s worth a try!

I remember driving near the factory years ago…you could smell chocolate for miles!
Very interesting recipe…never would have thought to use cocoa with beef!

The trace of sugar makes sense to me. Hershey’s Chicken Mole Rub recipe includes a little. I make Douglas Rodriguez’s Mole Rub and use it on grilled turkey and pork and I think the sugar rounds out the other spices.

I will have to try this. Chicken and chocolate…. what more could I ask for. Looks like a great holiday dish, too!
