Tangy Steak and Veggie Stir-Fry

I like making stir-fry now and then. And, what I really like is that stir-fry dishes are quick and easy to prepare.

All you need is a piping hot skillet filled with a touch of oil and chopped vegetables and meat, skillet ready.  The mix of vegetables in this recipe cooks crisp-tender very quickly and they’re colorful also. 

Spicy food is right up my alley, and this sauce is indeed a little tangy.  Lessen the ginger if you like it milder.  Since this cooks super fast, just be sure you have all the ingredients prepped and ready to cook when the skillet or wok is ready.  It’s packed with flavor and is “healthy-ish” too!  Give it a try for a quick tasty dinner!

  1. We used to eat masses of stir fries when we were working, thanks for reminding me how good they are. Have a great weekend Diane

  2. I had been thinking all morning how I wanted to prepare the single rib eye steak I have (3/4 lb. - enough to feed the two of us). I'm going to slice it up and make it tangy and do it in my new calphalon pan that's shaped more or less like a wok. You're my hero today.

  3. It seems every other week we clean out the refrigerator and toss together a stir-fry. We make our own sauce to go over it, pass on rice and cornstarch and actually enjoy a pretty low calorie meal as very little beef, pork or chicken is needed. Mostly veggies.

  4. That stir fry sauce sounds awesome!

  5. How funny, Stir fry is what I was planning to make for dinner. I usually don't add chili powder but I know my husband would love that addition!

  6. Healthy-ish, ha ha, that's as close as I come too! Great sounding stir fry.

Celery is as fresh and clean as a rainy day after a spell of heat. It crackles pleasantly in the mouth.... it should be eaten alone, for it is the only food which one really wants to hear oneself eat.
