Tonight I wanted a quick dinner that used up some leftovers. I made a Stir Fry from Leftover Beef Teriyaki, adding onions and bamboo shoots from the pantry. I used this leftover flank steak teriyaki from the other night. This quick stir-fry was made easier by having this refrigerator stir-fry sauce I had mixed up earlier! (See my earlier post on a stir-fry with shrimp.)
Stir Fry from Leftover Beef Teriyaki, Onions, Bamboo Shoots
- 1-2 Tbs oil I used peanut
- 1/2 an onion cut into wedges
- 3 green onions cut into 1″ pieces
- 1 small can bamboo shoots drained
- 1/2 a cooked flank steak cut into thin strips
- 1 cup frozen broccoli
- Mason jar stir-fry sauce to taste
- Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan and then add your vegetables in order of what takes longest to cook. Add one item at a time, stirring a minute or so before adding the next. The list above is what I used tonight but at different times I would use whatever vegetables I had fresh or frozen that needed to be used.
- About a minute or two before everything is “done”, add a good healthy splash of the stir-fry sauce. I think I used about 1/3 cup for this.
- Serve over steamed rice.
I forgot to take a picture. But trust me. The sauce makes it all good!
[…] Sometimes you might just need a side dish. You can turn leftover cooked vegetables or fresh raw vegetables into a gratin if you’re using the oven or perhaps they can be grilled. You could also do a quick stir fry of mixed vegetables, like this. […]
