I clipped this recipe from Taste of Home magazine several years ago and have found it to be the best-tasting easy beef and broccoli stir-fry. It is credited to Ruth Stahl. I often use charcoal chuck steak, which is very tender and lean. I also like that it doesn't call for any unusual ingredients.
The trick to a successful stir-fry is preparation. Here's a tip: before you go to bed, chop all veggies and refrigerate in sealed bags; the next night, dinner will go a lot quicker! Serve this dish with steamed rice or asian noodles.
Aunt Fanny's restaurant was located in Smyrna, Georgia. This was one of the famous side dishes they served with their good old-fashion cooking. The restaurant is now closed but their squash casserole lives on. Time does not include cooking squash and onion to use in casserole
This is from the Garlic Lover's Cookbook, another recipe tried and loved. Thank you MichEgan for this delightful book Cookbook Swap 2007. This is a very simple dish to make for a weekend or weeknight dinner. Can be dressed up for company without much fuss. A very adaptable recipe. Aromatic and delicious!
Adapted from Martin Yan's Chinese Cooking for Dummies. This is my favorite stir-fry sauce. It makes enough for two meals. Having extra on hand makes for a quick meal. My son will actually eat vegetables he can dip in the sauce! WARNING about the amount of soy sauce. When I used Kikkoman soy sauce, I found this sauce far too salty. I now use Angostura, which is much lower in salt. When adding soy sauce, start with less than half the amount and slowly add more to taste. Using vegetable broth makes this vegetarian. Yield: 1 3/4 cups (couldn't get that amount entered)
A number of years ago when our town used to hold a Farmers' Market they were giving out samples of veggies stirfried in this sauce and passed out the recipe to those that requested it. Very simple to make and tastes great in basically any type of stirfry...pork, chicken, shrimp or beef.
This recipe is nice and spicy. The version below has an average amount of chili in it, but if you are like us and love a bit of heat you can add another couple of spoons of Sambal Oelek. Better yet, go crazy with some Sriracha sauce or some fresh chilies. This recipe is adapted from an Australian Women's Weekly cookbook. UPDATE: Changed the cut of meat after the first review to make it more relevant to North America.
