This recipe is easy to make and good to eat! I made it tonight using beef sirloin steak. It can easily be made with chicken or pork. I have even done it with ground beef. I used a ready-made sauce, Bachan’s Japanese Barbecue Sauce. This sauce has a great flavor and can be used with about any meats.  I buy it at Costco. You could just use soy or teriyaki sauce, whichever flavors you prefer. I served it over rice but it could also be served on noodles or nothing at all.  I always use recipes as a guide and change it up to fit my and my family’s tastes. So, give it a try and put your own twist on it!

Beef Stir Fry

This is an easy, fairly quick dish to make for dinner. It takes longer to prep your ingredients than it takes to cook it. If you have time to cut your veggies ahead or have some already available in the freezer, you can have this ready in under 30 minutes. I served it over rice, but it could be served on noodles.
