Simple Stir-Fry

We have stir fry for dinner at least once a week. Seriously it is one of our family's favorites! This is a fast staple I know I can throw together with whatever veggies I have on hand. Some day's it's just 3 ingredients and other days it's up to 7. Using what's already in the fridge makes it different every time, and not the same recipe. Plus it only takes 30 minutes to make! SCORE! Grab your favorite veggies, meat and my DELICIOUS Stir Fry Sauce and get to cooking!



Simple Stir-Fry

Chop and cube whatever meat and veggies you have on hand.

For our family of 4 I used:
2 c. cubed Pork (we've used chicken and beef - all are delicious!)
1/2 Onion - quartered
4 stalks Celery
2 large Carrots (peeled and cut)
----------------
1/2 c. Lightly Salted Peanuts
1 small Tomato - diced

Place the meat, onion, celery and carrots in a large skillet with about 3 T. Olive oil or 2 T. Coconut Oil.

Cook over medium- medium/high heat until meat is cooked through and veggies are softened. 
(*You can cover the skillet with a lid to speed up cooking)

Add the tomato and peanuts last, just to heat through. 
(*If the tomato cooks too long it gets really mushy, and the peanuts burn easily)

Serve the stir fry over rice and pour some Stir-Fry Sauce on top. DELISH!


Stir Fry Sauce:
1/2 c. Sugar
3 T. Soy Sauce
3 T. Apple Cider Vinegar
-------------------
1/2 c. Ketchup

In a small sauce pan heat sugar, soy sauce and vinegar. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and add the ketchup. Whisk until smooth.  Pour over your favorite stir fry!
