Stir frying is a traditional Chinese method of cooking that involves preparing food in a wok [don't worry if you don't own a wok, a large frying pan works just fine!] The stir fry our SOS Mothers make is as easy as can be; as long as you can sauté you can make our stir fry!

- 2 bags of frozen veggies (choose any mix you like)
- 1 lb beef, cut into thin strips
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tsp grated, fresh ginger
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- oil for frying
Heat the oil in a wok or a deep frying pan. Add the beef strips to the wok and quickly brown them, removing them when they are brown on both sides and cooked through. Add your frozen veggies to the wok and cook, stirring constantly, for about 2 minutes.
Add the beef strips back into the pan, along with the garlic, soy sauce and ginger. Allow the mixture to simmer for 5-10 minutes [just long enough to cook everything through while also letting the veggies retain their crunchiness].
Serve over noodles or fried rice. [Makes 4 servings]
