Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry
Serving Size: 1 1/2 cups stir fry and 2/3 cup instant brown rice
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 pound lean beef or pork (sliced thinly against the grain)
- 2 cups instant brown rice (or whole wheat noodles), uncooked
- 2 tablespoons oil (canola or vegetable), divided
- 7 cups chopped vegetables (like carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, bell peppers, and onions) or 24 ounces frozen stir fry vegetables, thawed
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- Mix ginger, garlic powder, soy sauce, and water. Pour 1/4 cup of the mix into a sealable plastic bag and save the rest. Add meat to the bag. Seal the bag and set it in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.
- Prepare brown rice according to directions on the package for 4 servings.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large frying pan. When oil is hot, add meat from plastic bag and stir until brown. This will take 1 to 3 minutes. Discard liquid from the bag.
- Remove meat from pan, set aside, and cover. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to pan.
- Add chopped hard vegetables when oil is hot. Stir and cook them for 3 minutes. Add chopped soft vegetables. Stir and cook until tender (about 5 minutes).
- Add cornstarch to the saved ginger mixture and stir until smooth.
- Return meat to the pan when vegetables are tender. Add cornstarch mixture and cook for about 2 minutes until bubbly.
- Serve over brown rice.
Wash hands and fresh produce under running water. Trim, peel, and core vegetables using a clean knife and clean cutting board. Then chop or slice the produce.
Add a few drops of hot sauce to the ginger mixture if you like a spicy flavor.
The meat is easier to cut into strips if you freeze it for 20 minutes.
