Beef Stir Fry

Beef Recipes | 0 comments

This has a lot of ingredients so it might seem complicated, but it’s not. Like any stir fry, prepare all of your ingredients before you start cooking. After that there’s nothing to it. An easy and inexpensive weekday meal, it is very attractive and tasty – you could also serve it to company. Serve over rice.
