When evening activities make life hectic, you want dinner to be healthy, easy, and fast. So Simple Stir Fry. Really! It’s my forever go-to anytime of the week choice.




We’re heading into the last week of Summer. I can hardly believe that! But truth is, I’m ready. I adore the fall colors that brighten up the sky, the cooler air, and those blue, blue skies. And even though my family is moving into college days, I’m still shopping the school supply bins with vengeance. Needless to say, my office is very well stocked.

And that has nothing whatsoever to do with this delicious So Simple Stir Fry.

For this stir-fry isn’t seasonal or even remotely fall-ish. But it is filled with a plethora of veggies that just happen to be in season near the end of summer and early days of fall. Appropriate anytime of the year, but especially now as our schedules become more regular.

Use any veggies on hand or that are seasonal in your market. In fact, markets like Whole Foods even offer pre-chopped veggies, eliminating really all of the work. Making this dish even simpler. The recipe calls for 3-4 cups of chopped veggies. Most often I love to use broccoli, baby bok choy, spinach, onion, peppers, and other season veggies like asparagus, butternut squash, etc. The options are limitless.

The sauce is a simple stir-fry sauce I shake up in a mason jar with ingredients I always have on hand.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 lb meat in bite-size portions (flank steak, rotisserie chicken, or tofu)
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 3-4 cup chopped vegetables (I love to use peppers, spinach, baby bok choy, onions, broccoli or buy pre-chopped in your produce section).
  • cilantro as garnish

Stir Fry Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha, or to taste

Instructions

Stir Fry Sauce: Make the sauce by adding all of the ingredients into a mason jar, secure with lid, and shake. Set aside.

Make rice or noodles to serve with stir fry.

Meat: If using uncooked meat, cut into bite size pieces, add to a skillet coated with canola oil and heated over medium-high heat. Stir fry until done. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. If using rotisserie chicken, stir fry until heated through and set aside.

Veggies: In the same skillet, add canola oil and chopped veggies. Stir Fry over medium-high heat until crisp-tender.

Add the meat back into the skillet and about half of the stir fry sauce, or to taste. Swirl until meat and veggies are coated and hot. Serve over rice or noodles.
