I don't remember where the exact recipe came from. I think maybe one of the little Betty Crocker books you see at the checkout stand. I did change a couple things to suit our family's tastes. Everyone likes the flavors here and it's fairly quick to make. The longest part is cutting the meat. If the meat is partially frozen - it makes the job easier. Yield is approximate.

Really great recipe and a sure family / guest pleaser! Quite an interesting recipe because I cook quite a few Asian style dishes and for the first few mouthfuls I thought it was pleasant but a bit "ho-hum", but it has a flavor that slowly builds during the meal and I started to enjoy it more and more with every bite. At the same time by the end it didn't feel overpowering so I'm sure it would suit a wide range of tastes.

This was an easy delicious stir fry! I used 1 green and 1 red pepper for color, garlic and low sodium soy sauce. Thank you ; )

We love stir frys and this was another great one to add to my keepers file. I used 1/2 a green, 1/2 a red, 1/2 a yellow and 1/2 an orange bell pepper to give a nice mix of colours. I also added in some siced marinated garlic that needed using. Served over cooked brown rice for a very healthy meal. :)
