Beef Stir Fry

Here is a recipe for one of our favorite meals, beef stir fry.

1 1/2 pounds lean round, sirloin, or flank, in strips
1 onion, sliced
8 oz. sliced fresh mushrooms, or more if you like mushrooms
6 cups fresh broccoli
2 large green peppers, sliced
2 cups zucchini squash, sliced or in bite sized pieces
2 cups fresh tomatoes, chopped
Optional: carrots


5-6 cloves garlic, crushed or finely chopped
1/2 cup of soy sauce
1/2 cup of water
1 tsp. of ginger, more if freshly grated
3-4 T honey

Pour marinade over the beef and allow to sit 4 hours up to 24 hours.

Coat your pan with olive oil, saute onions, add meat and the marinade. After meat is cooked, add broccoli, then a few minutes later add the squash, and a few minutes later add the mushrooms, and then tomatoes. I try to keep the broccoli a little crunchy by not cooking too long and sometimes add more soy sauce.

Serve over rice -- brown, white or wild -- your choice.

Many times I divide the recipe in half for freezing after cooking the meat and onions.

Until next time, God bless.

Yum, that looks so good. I love a good stir fry loaded with all those veggies.

I just wrote down your recipe for the marinade, it's a little different from mine and sounds better. I'm going to give it a try. Thanks.

Mary-Austin, this recipe is not only low fat but stretches. I don't know if you've notice a running theme in the recipes I post, but just about all are good for several meals. Cooking is not one of my favorite things to do so I favor things that combine as much as I can, make a lot of it, then coast for a few days in the cooking department. lol
