easy stir fry recipe
Stir fry is a great dish with veggie and meat versions and the best part is that stir frying seals in the different flavors. Meat, broccoli, bell peppers, and green beans combine perfectly well in a healthy and satisfying meal. Stir fry comes to the rescue when we are short of time which made it part of our menu and routine dinners. My kids are so crazy about this particular stir fry that I serve it at brunch and lunch as well. It simply tastes superb and I love the fact that it requires little prep.
