Stir fry’s are a simple way to stretch your proteins, and still feel like you have had a full meal. They include lots of veggies so they are carb friendly for diabetics and others who are watching their carb count. ½ cup steamed rice is just enough of a bed for the meat and veggies without going over your carb allowance. You can change the protein to chicken or turkey with every bit as good a result.

How to Make Beef Stir Fry


  1. 1. Heat a wok or deep skillet over medium heat until it starts to smoke a little.
  2. 2. Place cut meat into hot pan, do not crowd the meat, it should be in a single layer on the bottom. Do in batches if necessary. Stir the meat until browned on all sides.
  3. 3. Remove meat to plate and place the veggies into the hot pan, except the bean sprouts. Stir fry until crisp tender, this only takes a few minutes.
  4. 4. Return meat to pan and add the stir fry sauce and bean sprouts and cover with a lid. Let steam until the bean sprouts have cooked down a bit and are crisp tender.
  5. 5. Serve over steamed rice or noodles.
  6. Nutritional Information per serving: This is calculated without the rice or noodles.
