Easy Recipes: Szechuan Beef Stir Fry
Dinner
6-8
 
Here is a super simple recipe that comes together quickly for a busy school or work night or a Sunday night supper. It is packed full of protein, vitamin B12 and iron and is a good source of fiber. Who knew that a nutrient packed dinner for your family could be so easy? We used a wok, but you can certainly use a skillet.
Ingredients
  • 10 oz pk stir fry blend veggies
  • 3 T water
  • 2 shoulder center steaks (3/4 inch thick and about 8 oz each)
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • ½ c sesame ginger stir fry sauce (I used plain classic stir fry sauce)
  • ¼ t crushed red pepper
  • 2 cups white rice, prepared
  • ¼ c dry roasted peanuts (we omitted this because our littlest has a peanut allergy)
Instructions
  1. Toss your veggies into the pan. I used frozen because it was convenient, but you can certainly use fresh veggies.
  2. Add the water as well. Cook the veggies over a medium heat until they are crisp and tender. Cover if you're using a skillet- for our wok that was not an option.
  3. While the veggies are going, slice your steaks into thin strips.
  4. Once the veggies are tender, remove them from the skillet or wok and set them aside. Discard any leftover water.
  5. Toss the beef and garlic into the skillet or wok and cook until no longer pink over a medium high heat.
  6. Once the meat is no longer pink, add the veggies back in.
  7. Add the crushed red pepper. I only did about half of the amount since little kids were eating as well.
  8. Add the stir fry sauce. Mix well.
  9. Continue to cook over a medium heat until everything is well combine and thoroughly heated. About 5 minutes.
  10. Serve the stir fry over steamed rice. Top with peanuts, if desired.
  11. Enjoy!
Notes
We also had a delicious side salad with an Asian Sesame dressing.
