Stir-fry Beef With Onions The poor onion doesn't get much respect. That's too bad, because onions have numerous health benefits - they contain compounds that scientists believe can help reduce high blood pressure and lower cholesterol, and are a rich source of flavonoids that may help prevent cancer. The onion takes center stage in this simple Cantonese stir-fry, where it is paired with marinated beef. Adding a little water to the beef while making Stir-fry Beef With Onions gives a nice gravy for you to mix in with cooked rice. And if you feel that two onions is just a bit too "oniony," feel free to replace one of them with a sliced tomato.

So many of us fail to appreciate just how special an onion can be, but at least this clip tries to bring some balance to the argument.
