What Goes In Stir Fry?

PROTEIN: Stir fry can use any type of meat like beef, chicken or pork. For a meatless version, try tofu or just simply leave out the protein altogether. In this version, ground beef is the meat of choice.

VEGGIES: The sky’s the limit when it comes to adding veggies to a stir fry. Common veggies like carrots, celery and onions are often found in stir fry dishes. In this stir fry beef recipe we add bean sprouts and water chestnuts too.

SAUCE: Every great stir fry has a basic stir fry sauce. The sauce in this asian beef stir fry is super simple to make, yet so incredibly flavorful!
