Szechuan "Beef" Stir Fry
Yet another quick lunch fix that turned out so well I had to post!
This weekend I tested out Gardein's new Szechuan Beef Strips for my lunch and they were delicious. I am really trying to cut down on processed foods and eat a healthy whole foods-based diet, but my absolute favorite processed goodies are these quick frozen dishes.
This was a fast, flavorful meal when all I really wanted was greasy Chinese food. Love that.
I also love love love the sauce that comes with this packet. It is fantastic.
1/2 onion, sliced
1 C sugar snap peas
1 bell pepper, sliced (I used half a red and half a yellow for extra prettiness)
1 package Gardein Szechuan Beef Strips
1 T avocado oil
Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat and cook the "beef" strips until heated through and crispy on the outside.
Then crank the heat up on the skillet, add the last 1 teaspoon oil, and throw all the veggies. Cook a few minutes until the veggies are softened. Add the "beef" strips back into the pan and add the sauce packet.
I piled mine on some chow mein noodles. Rice or soba noodles would be perfect, or even try throwing this goodness on a salad!
