Stir-Fry was on the menu for dinner tonight =] We haven't had it in forever for some reason so I was really happy to have it tonight. I of course didn't realize that I didn't have everything I needed [[which you'll notice in the picture. I do add in carrots which they do not]] It was still yummy though. It's yet another recipe I got from 'In the Kitchen THE COSTCO WAY'. I freakin love that cookbook ha

It's so simple to make... as to why it's a favorite of mine!

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup of any of the following: beef strips, chicken chunks, shrimp or tofu chunks (mixing and matching is always good!)
2 cups chopped romaine hearts
1 cup chopped broccoli
1 cup chopped broccoli rabe
1/2 cup chopped cauliflower
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped zucchini (optional)
2 tablespoons each soy sauce and rice vinegar, or 4 tablespoons hoisin sauce
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
Cooked rice

Heat a wok (or heavy fry pan) over medium-high heat. Add oil. Add beef and stir-fry for 2 minutes (5-10 for shrimp, chicken, and tofu), or until fully cooked.
Add all of the veggies. Toss vigorously, adding either soy sauce and rice vinegar or hoisin sauce.
Continue tossing until the veggies soften to desired tenderness, about 2-3 minutes.
Turn off the heat and mix in garlic and lemon peel.
serve over rice.

it was one of the first things i really started cooking that frank liked! ha its yummy =] we obviously don't add in everything this recipe calls for, and you could totally add in other stuff you wanted. i also don't do both soy sauce and rice vinegar, i just do 2 tablespoons soy sauce and its the perfect amount. this is the nutritional info for the meal...
