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

Step-by-Step

  • 11. Heat a wok or deep skillet over medium heat until it starts to smoke a little.

  • 33. 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.
  • 44. 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.
  • 55. Serve over steamed rice or noodles.
