I like a good stir fry for using up odds and ends of vegetables. In this case, I didn’t really have enough broccoli to make just a broccoli and beef stir fry, which was what I initially thought of cooking, but I added in some sliced red and yellow peppers and there was plenty. I also used a sweet and sour kind of flavoring because of the peppers. It came out great and leftovers packed up nicely for a lunch for my daughter.
The flavor sauce and stir fry ideas come from How to Cook Without a Book: Recipes and Techniques Every Cook Should Know by Heart, (affiliate link) which I’ve given both my daughters when they moved into places with kitchens. It’s a great book for learning basic techniques which you can then easily modify. In this case, once you learn how to do a stir-fry you can use different proteins and vegetables and flavor sauces. She has four to get you started plus some good ideas of different protein/vegetables combinations.
I used half a flank steak for this last night but you can use whatever kind of beef you have, or substitute chicken or pork or tofu.
