Tasty Tuesday: Beef & Veggie Stir-Fry

 Don't know about y'all, but I love one-dish meals... they're tasty & there are fewer dishes to wash! WIN! I haven't tried this stir-fry recipe yet, but one of my facebook friends vouches for it. It's on our menu for next week...


The Ingredients:


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup sherry or water
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp canola oil, divided
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 lb. sirloin or flank beef, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 lb fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 8 oz fresh snow peas
  • 1 lb fresh asparagus or broccoli
  • any other veggie your family likes (squash, zucchini, bell peppers, baby corn, carrots, etc)
  • rice or noodles, cooked


The Directions:

In a small bowl, whisk soy sauce, sherry (or water), cornstarch & sugar.

Transfer 1/4 cup of the mixture to a large bowl; stir in garlic & 1 tbsp oil. Add meat & toss to coat. Let marinate for at least 15 minutes (or overnight for maximum flavor).

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add half the beef. Stir-fry 1 to 2 minutes or until no longer pink (don't overcook to avoid making the beef tough). Remove from pan. Repeat with rest of beef.

In same pan, heat remaining 1 tbsp oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add mushrooms & onion. Cook while stirring until mushrooms are tender. Add snow peas & other veggies; cook 2-3 minutes longer or until vegetables are crisp-tender.

Stir remaining soy sauce mixture & add to pan. Bring to a boil; cook & stir 1-2 minutes until sauce is thickened. Return beef to pan & stir until heated through.

Serve with rice or noodles.
