Prep Time:

Cook Time:
10 minutes
4 - 6 servings


1cupbasmati rice or 1 package Asian noodles,

2tablespoonscanola oil or olive oil,

1poundbeef London broil or sirloin, chicken breasts, pork loin or peeled & deveined shrimp,

1poundfrozen or fresh vegetables cut into same size pieces,

2tablespoonschopped onion,

2tablespoonschopped garlic,

2tablespoonschopped ginger,

1cupstir-fry sauce, flavor to match the meat,


1Basic Rules: Prepare the rice or noodles according to package directions. A heavy Teflon or cast iron 12-inch flat skillet works best on a gas or electric stovetop.

2Heat skillet over high heat for 2 minutes before adding oil. Stir-fry each ingredient separately: first the meat to medium and set aside. The meat will finish cooking during the third step. Next stir-fry the veggies and make sure the pieces are the same size or cook equally. For example, carrots are denser than green beans or mushrooms. Add the onions, garlic and ginger last so that they do not burn.

3Finally, add the stir-fried meat and sauce to the veggies and stir-fry the mixture until all ingredients are hot and sauce is thickened. You can serve your stir-fry over steamed Basmati rice or cooked Asian noodles.

4Crunchy Topping: Some added flavor and crunch can be added with chopped peanuts, nuts, almonds, Wasabi Peas, fried onions, chow mien noodles or chopped green onions.
