Quick and Easy Stir-Fry

This recipe is one of our go-to recipes when we get home late from work and have no energy to cook a big meal.  It takes about 30 minutes to make, but requires very few ingredients and little effort.20181112_205304

For the rice, meat, and oil, pick any kind you prefer.  I usually like to use peanut or canola oil, as it adds a little bit of flavor to the stir-fry.

Pre-chopped meat that is already cut into smaller, bite-sized pieces is available at most grocery stores.  If you’re a vegetarian, not to worry – this recipe still tastes good meatless 🙂

Ingredients
  • Rice (your preference)
  • Oil (your preference)
  • Stir-fry beef or chicken (or any other pre-chopped meat)
  • A small bag of frozen vegetables
  • Soy sauce
  • Optional Extras: Garlic cloves, ginger (fresh or ground), salt, pepper, cashews, hot sauce, teriyaki sauce, additional veggies
Steps
  1. Make your rice according to the package directions; as much rice as you’d like to eat in this sitting.  While the stir-fry can be re-heated, rice is always best if made the same day.  If you’re using instant rice, wait to make the rice until the end since it cooks so quickly.
  2. Heat up 1-2 tbsp. of oil in a large pan.  When the oil is hot enough, add the meat and cook until meat is browned on all sides and mostly cooked through.
  3. Add the bag frozen vegetables (and garlic, fresh ginger, and/or additional vegetables, if using) to the pan and cook until the frozen vegetables soften.
  4. Add soy sauce to the pan.  I usually use about 3-4 tbsp, but everyone has different preferences so add as much as you’d like.  If you’re using teriyaki sauce or cashews, you can add them in now as well.
  5. Finally, add salt, pepper, ground ginger, and/or hot sauce, if using, and stir thoroughly.  Make sure the vegetables are heated all the way through and the meat is cooked completely before serving.
  6. Serve the stir-fry with your rice, and add extra soy sauce and/or hot sauce if you’d like.  Enjoy!
