How To Make bill and maddy's chicken or beef stir-fry

  • 1
    Put 2 Tbls. of the oil in a large skillet (I like to use a wok) and heat over medium high heat.
  • 2
    Add the sliced onion, stir and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the bell pepper, garlic and ginger and cook until both the pepper and onion until tender about 4 to 6 minutes. Remove the veggies from the skillet; set aside.
  • 3
    Pour in the remaining 1 Tbs. oil in the skillet. Season the chicken or beef with salt and pepper and Chinese Five Spice and add it to the oil, and cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 min.
  • 4
    Stir in the frozen veggies and sprinkle in some red chili flakes to taste.
  • 5
    Reduce the heat to low and stir in the hoisin sauce and water. Simmer for about 1 min. Stir in the peanuts or cashews.
  • 6
    Add sugar or artificial sweetener to taste and serve over a mound of hot rice or Asian noodles. We like jasmine rice for these types of dishes, it adds a nice nutty flavor.

    *To make this dish with beef instead of chicken, partially freeze a piece of round steak. When it is half-way frozen, it will slice paper thin.
