Simple Beef Stir Fry

SImple Beef Stir Fry I Mommy Hates Cooking

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!

This is one of those meals that takes just under 30 minutes to prepare, making it a quick and easy dish to get on the table.  I like to serve it over a hot bed of rice and sometimes with a little extra soy sauce!
