I found this in a light & tasty magazine and have been enjoying for years. The couple who shared it had been losing weight and this was part of their menu.
I changed just a few things, by adding garlic and store bought stir fry sauce.
You can change it by using chicken, tofu or pork.
I love this because you can make it your own and it's always great!

How to Make Healthy Beef and Veggie Stir-Fry

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl. mix the cornstarch, garlic and soy sauce until smooth. Add the beef and stir to coat. Let sit for a bit to marinate as you chop the veggies.
  2. In a wok or large skillet, heat the oil and stir- fry the onions mushrooms for about 3 min. Remove from wok.
  3. Next stir fry the peppers for about 3 min. (you may need a bit more oil. Add the beef to the middle, cook and stir for about 3-4 min.
  4. Add the mushroom mixture back in, along with the stir-fry sauce and chestnuts (if using). Stir and then cover, let simmer for a few mins.; or until desired doneness. Serve over brown rice.
  5. I like to drizzle just touch of sesame oil and add toasted sesame seeds, or almonds to the top sometimes.
