It was back to school this week for us in the Fuller home. Unlike most families who's kids go back to school giving parents a break, we homeschool so time in the kitchen becomes even more scarce! We like to make things as quick and easy as possible on busy school days and can be found turning to home made freezer meals or 20 min or less dinners.
This after work stir fry is a favorite on our home. You can even prechop the meats and veggies days before for an even quicker meal prep on the day!
- 2 tablespoons peanut oil
- 1/2 lb thinly cut sirloin (or protein of choice)
- 1 cup green beans cut into 1-2 inch pieces
- 1 carrot thinly sliced
- 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1/4 cup beef stock (or chicken/veg depending on chosen protein)
- 1/4 cup black bean sauce
- 4 green onions thinly sliced
- 1 can bamboo shoots, drained
Heat half of oil in wok or pan. Stir fry protein until browned all over. Remove from pan and set aside. Heat remaining oil in same wok/pan. Stir fry beans, carrot, bell pepper, and garlic until tender. Return beef to wok/pan with remaining ingredients and stir fry until hot.
