Using thoes veggies
Recently I noticed that I still had broccoli in my fridge. I couldn’t even remember the last time I purchased broccoli. That made me worry that the stuff I had went bad. Luckily, it was still good. But I knew I was going to have to use it soon or throw it away. Which I hate doing. So I figured I’d throw the veggies in with some meat and put a good sauce on it and Voila! Stir fry al la me. The great thing about this recipe is that I’ve put so many different veggies and even included noodles at time, and it still turns out just as yummy!
What I used for tonight’s dinner:
- 1 lb Stew meat
- Onion Powder
- Garlic Powder
- Veggie Oil
- 1 Cup White Rice
- ¾ Cup water (or beef broth)
- 2Tbsp Low Sodium Soy Sauce
- Corn Starch
- Top Ramen Beef Seasoning Packet (optional if using noodles instead of rice)
First things first, get the rice going. Even if it gets done before everything else, leaving the lid on will at lest keep it warm. Season your beef, and start cooking it. I use veggie oil, but feel free to use any kind. When the meat is cooking, I chop up and get my veggies ready. Once the meat was cooked, I threw in the veggies at let them cook while I got the sauce together. Pour in the sauce and let it cook until it reaches your desired thickness. I serve mine in a bowl on top of rice, and let the juice flavor the rice a bit. It is so delicious. And its not too full of sodium or whatnot.
I have been trying to lower my daily crab intake. Today, I reduced it quite a bit, but I still have work to do. Its just so easy most of the time, to throw in a starch with dinner to help feed everyone. Specifically when on a grocery budget. But the good thing is, I limited my portion size when it came to the carbs, and made sure to put more veggies and protein in my bowl than anything else.
I urge you all, try this dish out. Whats wonderful is that you can take this idea and throw in your favorite veggies. And if you do put your twist on it, what did you do? And how did it turn out?
