Asian Style Honey Vegetable Stir Fry
Submitted by Loosenukes Uploaded by Djarum
Tonight me and the lady friend made stir fry. Follow me along this path of boldness and danger; adventure and saucy-ness. You'll need:
1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup prepared stir-fry sauce 1/4 to 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flake 4 tsps vegetable oil 2 cups small broccoli floret 2 cups mushroom 1 small onion, cut into wedges and separated 1 medium carrot, cut diagonally
Plus we added a package of boneless rib-cut beef, but you can add chicken or whatever else you'd like.
First, we made the honey-asian sauce. You can buy any type of premade stir fry sauce you want - we just went with original. Mix that 1/4 cup in with 1/4 cup of honeyand then sprinkle crushed red pepper flake into the mixture; stir to mix all the parts up together.
Next we should've sliced up the vegetables, but Nicole decided to throw the dozen roses I bought her onto the floor.
My shattered love life aside, next you chop up all the vegetables to your hearts content. The recipe calls for only 2 cups of each, but that's a REALLY small amount, so just do whatever you feel like and depending on how many people you're feeding. We made about 4 cups of each and we fed 4 people comfortably.
At this point we separated the process - cooking the vegetables first and then deciding to cook the meat last, which worked out perfect. So throw all the chopped up veggies into a wok and then add olive oil, salt, and garlic powder [nicole's secret seasoning mix].
She sure can shake it.
Then tenderize the meat the same way. Mmm, nicole's hands all over my meat...
We chopped the meat horizontally into smaller pieces that are easier to pick at and chew with the rest of the stir fry.
Now you can quickly cook the meat by itself in another dish while letting the already cooked vegetables have a rest. After the meat is cooked to your taste, add it all together. OOOH ACTION SHOT.
Yea, that's right, keep stirring.
Ah, the final product.
We made some cous cous as a side dish and I ate the dish with a ginger ale whilst Nicole had a water. Both pleased the palate equally. I hope you enjoyed the pictures (maybe I'll post funny ones tomorrow) and this meal that can be made for $16.25.
