While getting ready to make a stir fry for some lunches this week I realized I was getting a bit bored with my usual spices and flavorings. Every once in a while you need to mix it up with your food or things get boring and so sorting though my pantry looking for something new to use I stummbled upon one of my new favorite seasonings… Honey!!
This recipe is an instant favorite in my home and I’m posting it here so you can enjoy it too!
Honey Ginger Beef Stir Fry
1 lb beef chow mien meat
1/2 red pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 yellow pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 small onion chopped
1 cup broccoli florets
2 cups long grain brown rice
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
3 tablespoons honey
salt and pepper to taste
In a medium pot add the rice and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and cover, simmer until water is absorbed and remove from heat. Let sit covered for 20 minutes. Add olive oil, salt and pepper.
Meanwhile in a large pan add the butter and heat over medium heat. Cook the beef until almost no pink remains. Add veggies, increase heat to medium-high and cook stirring constantly until the veggies are tender crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add the curry, ginger, salt, pepper and honey and stir to mix. Serve over the rice.
I hope you love this recipe as much as my family does. Don’t be afraid to mix it up and try different veggies, meats and amounts of seasonings. This recipe is super easy to make and very tasty.
