Beef & Garlic Scapes Stir Fry created by Kitty Z

Garlic scapes appear in many Chinese dishes. If you don't grow garlic or can't buy scapes at a country market, substitute with green onions or green beans.

    Fantastic! I used garlic chives, which are almost the exact same thing as garlic scapes and a great substitute; you can find them at any Asian supermarket. They're wonderful in this! Thanks!

    Great stir fry CL! I made this using green onions in place of scapes, and a seeded halapeno pepper, of coarse I used much more than 2 cloves of garlic, something like 2 tbsps. The sauce was just delicious, I served it with white rice. DH and myself really enjoyed this dish. Thanks for another winner...Kitten:)
