The most delicious and tender steak stir-fry called Glaya is one of the most simple Libyan dishes to make!
If I think back hard enough, I can still smell the aroma of garlic and ginger coming from the kitchen at 5 in the morning. Whenever we were going on a road trip as a family, my mom woke up early to make glaya for sandwiches to have on the road. They were so simple but one of the best sandwiches I ever had. Just fresh French baguettes or bread rolls with mayonnaise and sometimes sharmoula (Libyan salad/salsa with tomatoes, onions, and jalapeñ0). They’re now a piece of my childhood and whenever I want to remember those times, I just make them for my family now.
It’s also not uncommon to see this beef stir-fry made with liver. If you’re looking for a quick recipe to make for an on the go lunch or meal prep for dinner, this is the one!
