Beef and Mixed Vegetables Stir Fry


Beef and Mixed Vegetables Stir Fry

After Halloween everything went fast forward! So, this week I decided to make super fast dinner for the whole family, nothing beats stir fry right? By the time the rice cooked, the stir fry is DONE!. I'm sure most of you have its own favorite stir fry recipes. I do too! the concept of Stir Fry for me is just basically throwing everything in a skillet with your favorite sauce and that's it. If your planning to clean out your fridge, this is the best way to make a meal out of left over vegetables. Sometimes, I do used store bought sauce like the Kikkoman brand, but this time I'm just gonna make something available on my hand which is the cornstarch, below is the substitution if you don't have any cornstarch at home.
 According to the source "cornstarch"- A dense, powdery thickening agent made from part of the corn kernel finely ground
How to prepare: Mix with a small amount of liquid into a slurry or paste before adding to a hot dish, or it will lump. Continued cooking or stirring will cause the thickening to thin.

Substitutions: 2 T all-purpose flour = 1 tbsp cornstarch
2 T granular tapioca = 1 tbsp cornstarch
1 T Arrowroot flour = 1 tbsp cornstarch

  20. Actually I don't eat beef often. I think it depends on how it was cooked. I didn't like kasi the after taste e. But your beef dish looks yummy with the veggies. Healthy pa :)

    1. The crunchy veggies make the beef taste minimal. I agree with you, It depends on how you cooked it. Thank you, Maye:)
