Easy Stir-Fried Beef


This is one of those stir-fry recipes that doesn’t use a million ingredients so it’s an easy meal to put together on a busy weeknight.  I served mine with fried rice.  Just be sure to use a tender cut of beef for the meat.  I think you could switch this up to use chicken if you prefer.
