Can I just say...yum. This dish is insanely yummy and good for you! It's very simple to make, too, so if you want a pretty quick dinner I'd recommend this.
This meal is fun because you can mix up want you want to put in and such. You could serve your meat and veggies on rice noodles, or just plain rice. You could add broccoli, or peppers. (Or both for double nutritional benefits!!) Onions, or water chesnuts. (Never mind, definitely definitely add water chesnuts! They are the bomb.) :)
Anyway, it's fun because you can totally customize this meal to your liking, but I encourage you to branch out with your tastes too!
So, to kind of wrap this all up, here's what your stir fry will basically be like: You'll have a base of either noodles or rice, whatever you prefer or have on hand. Don't skip this, it's necessary to this recipe and adds grains to your meal. Then, you serve warm veggies and meat on top. Veggies I like to use when my family makes this are peppers, broccoli, onions, water chesnuts, (they aren't technically a vegetable but 😅) and sugar snap peas. Veggies I would stay away from (not 'cuz they're bad for you, just 'cuz it would taste funky) are spinach, (anything leafy, like kale or lettuce too), and tomatoes, etc. I would stick to the ones I suggested, unless you like something else I didn't list.
Meat. If you are vegetarian, of course just skip this step! But it does add extra protein. I use filet mignon. It's delicous!
Okay, now to the exact recipe! Let's do this!
Stir Fry with Veggies (serves about 4, also depends on how much rice you make)
Rice or rice noodles
3/4 lb filet mignon
1/2 cup each assorted veggies - peppers, broccoli, onion, sugar snap peas, water chesnuts
Teriyaki sauce to taste (use whatever kind you like!)
Cook you "base" (noodles; rice) according to the package. Use a large pan and add a drizzle of olive oil. Then add in your cut-up veggies.
Cut your meat into bit-size pieces, and then add it in to your mix once the veggies have cooked a little bit.
Let everything cook, about 10 minutes, until the meat is done and the veggies are soft. Add in some Teriyaki sauce. Serve over you noodles/rice and add more sauce, if desired. Enjoy!!!
