This year’s sweet: New York was an unparalleled night of sweet treats and savory eats. The Doe Fund’s Culinary Arts team was instrumental in the evening, serving up our famous homemade sliders and barbeque sauce as well as a variety of delectable hors d’oeuvres. The food was a hit on all accounts and there wasn’t a crumb left behind! The event sold out and accordingly many of our readers did not get to indulge in the culinary delight of sweet: New York. Have no fear though, because fresh from The Doe Fund’s kitchen vault we’re sharing one of our favorite recipes from the night. Our Asian Beef with Pear Bite appetizers are the perfect balance of savory and sweet…a guaranteed crowd-pleaser and a surefire way to impress your guests at your next party! Because the recipe incorporates pear it has a subtle sweetness. While it is certainly optional, this recipe can be further elevated by the addition of grilled pear.

Ingredients:

1 lb. of beef tenderloin or hanger steak, cut into bite sized strips
1 pear cut into 1 inch cube
1 tbsp. toasted sesame seeds and chopped scallions for garnish

4 cloves of minced garlic
1 chopped scallion stalk
3 tbsp. soy sauce
