I may have found a new favorite way to do stir fry! What? Stew Meat! That’s right stew meat or basically cubed beef. I decided to mix up our typical steak stir fry with stew meat. I happened to have some left from a meat pack that I purchased, but I was not really feeling stew that night.
It was SO delicious. It was tender and full of flavor, perfection. I think I may have actually liked it more than I do steak. Considering that I really love steak, that says a lot. Plus, it helped me branch out a little from always using stew meat only for stew!
