Stir-fry is one of our favorites. It’s great because you can change it up just enough that it’s like a whole new meal every time! One of my favorite recipes:
STIR FRY BEEF & SNOW PEAS
3-4 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon corn starch
1/2 tablespoon of oil (we use EVOO, but have used vegetable in a pinch)
1 tablespoon minced ginger root (or 1 1/2 teaspoons of ginger powder)
1 tablespoon minced garlic (or 2 teaspoons of garlic powder)
1 lb beef round steak, cut into strips (we’ve used other cuts of meat too, and it still tastes delish)
10 oz snow peas (I buy the bag from Costco and use half to two-thirds of it)
In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce and brown sugar. Then mix in the corn startch. Set it aside. Heat oil in a wok or skillet on medium high heat. Fry the ginger and garlic for about 30 seconds. If you are using powders, wait to add them until you add your sauce. Add the steak and fry for 2-3 minutes, or until evenly browned. Add the peas and cook an additional 3 minutes. Add the sauce mixture (and your powders, if applicable), bring to a boil and stir constantly. Turn heat to low and simmer until the sauce is thick and smooth. Serve. Enjoy! Caution: It WILL be hot… but oh, so yummy!
Use any meat you’d like and you can also add any veggies you would like: mushrooms, carrots, peppers, zucchini, water chestnuts. Sometimes we cheat and buy the frozen bags at the store… It turns this quick meal into a SUPER quick meal. Mmmmm. My fave: quick and easy!
