"Beef" Stir Fry

by kara on June 25, 2010

I’m not the biggest fan of processed foods.  That being said,  I sometimes resort to packaged foods when short on time or cooking during the week.  When I came across the gardein products www.gardein.com at Whole Foods, I just had to give them a try.   I used the beef less tips for this stir fry recipe and was pleasantly surprised. The best part of the all is when Courtland tasted it, he asked how I got such tender meat?  Ha!  I had to confess:)
I served the stir fry on top of quinoa, but it would be good on top of rice as well.

“Beef” Stir Fry

1 pkg. gardein beef less tips
Shitake mushrooms (1-2 c. sliced)
red or orange pepper-sliced
4 green onions-chopped
bunch of asparagus-cut into pieces
Quinoa or rice-prepare according to directions

Follow the “marinade” directions on the back of the gardein beef less tips package and set aside.  Chop up vegetables.  Heat a saute pan with canola or olive oil on high heat.  Stir fry tips until browned on each side.  Add vegetables and stir fry until browned.  Add a swirl of soy sauce to the pan and voila. . .a healthy dinner!

mmmm! Beef! Looks amazing Kara. Keep up the great work. Someday I hope to be able to "stir" up some viddles as well as you (ya, I'm dreaming).

Since you are my food expert, I need you to tell me what you know about Chia seeds. I'm reading "Born to Run" and can't help being interested in the barefoot running and Chia seeds these amazing people consume.

Talk soon and Happy Anniversary! J
