When I launch my own thesaurus Ellie, the entry against amazing will read as Ellie's Zesty Stir-fried Beef With Vegetables. We really have not had such a wonderful pasta meal in a long time. I served it on spaghetti. I have to concede that I used roast meat cut into strips as I had it ready and omitted the broccoli as could not go to the market due to the rains. Used the carrots and mushrooms but not the almonds as DH does not like nuts in his main meal. I cannot wait to make this again with tender meat(for stir frying) and broccoli. I also subbed sherry wine vinegar for the sherry wine (not avlbl)(I did add the marinade ingredients ofcourse) and used only a tblsp of oil as the cooked beef was added only at the end. DH and DS both agreed with me ofcourse that it was one hell of a meal. Thank you Ellie! :) Fay
