You know what’s crazy? Up until about three years ago, I hadn’t tried any kind of Asian food other than those donuts you find in a Chinese restaurant buffet. Or at least, the kind that was found in Chinese buffets in the 80s and 90s when I went with my parents. ;)

I can’t believe how many amazingly delicious dishes I’d been missing out on all those years! Today I’m sharing a simple stir-fry recipe that uses easy-to-find ingredients that are available at any grocery store.

You start off by preparing the rice, veggies, and a simple sauce for the meat. Make sure to have everything ready to go before you even turn on the stove!

Then you quickly cook the garlic, ginger, and toss in a little cayenne for a little extra kick. They may not be all that visible in the picture but they’re in there! Add the veggies and cook for a few more minutes.

Now add the meat! I’m usually pretty awful when it comes to adding vegetables to our meals so Mr. T was delighted with the ratio of meat to vegetables in this dish. There are a lot of veggies. I have to admit that when I made stir-fries in the past, I didn’t add any vegetables. It was just meat. And rice. I was thrilled with them but my vegetable lover wasn’t.

Place the rice on a plate, top with the stir-fry and enjoy. :)
