“I didn't feel like grilling yet another steak tonight, and I had some vegetables that needed to be used up, so I came up with stir-fry. Feel free to substitute whatever vegetables you have on-hand or like better. The sauce has a nice bite, so reduce or omit the red pepper flakes if that's not what you like.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop all the vegetables first, you won't have time if you start cooking first.
  2. Cut the steak into bite-sized pieces, or strips against the grain if you prefer. In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix sauce ingredients together well with a whisk.
  3. In a wok or huge skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat until very hot, then add the garlic, onion, and steak pieces. Stir-fry 3-5 minutes, until meat is mostly browned.
  4. Add all the vegetables; stir-fry 2-3 minutes. Pour the sauce over the entire pan, and continue stir-frying another 5-10 minutes, until steak is desired done-ness and vegetables are crisp-tender.
  5. Serve over rice.
