Yesterday as I was preparing to make a stir fry to use for lunches during the week I realized I was getting bored with my usual spices and seasonings. Its important to mix it up in the kitchen once in a while and so I started looking through the pantry for something new to use and discovered… Honey!
This is the first recipe I made using honey and WOW did it blow my mind! It’s an instant favorite around my home and I’m sharing the recipe with you here. Its healthy, quick and easy to make and is extremely easy to mix in different veggies and meats. Enjoy!
Honey Ginger Beef Stir Fry
1lb beef chow mien meat
1 cup brocolli florets
1/2 red pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 yellow pepper, thinly sliced
1/4 small onion, chopped
2 cups long grain brown rice
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
2 tablespoons honey
salt and pepper to taste
In a medium pot add the rice and 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce heat and cover. Simmer until all water is absorbed and remove from heat. Let sit 20 minutes. Add olive oil and salt to taste.
Meanwhile in a large pan add the butter and heat over medium heat. Add the beef and cook until almost no pink remains. Add veggies and increase heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring constantly until veggies are tender crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add the curry, ginger, honey and salt and pepper. Stir to mix. Serve over the rice.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did. Check back often for new recipes!
