Beef stir fry is one of my favorite quick-meal dinners to make on busy evenings. With baseball season beginning for us, the quicker the meal, the better. If I know I have everything ready to make a delicious, homemade meal at home, we’re less prone to pull through a drive through out of desperation and this beef stir fry recipe is just perfect!

To make cooking time even quicker, I like to go ahead and prepare ingredients earlier in the day. The preparation is really where most of the time for beef stir fry is spent, so go ahead and slice your beef and onions, measure out your other ingredients, and then sit back and enjoy your afternoon.

Then when you are running back in the door starving after an afternoon at the ball fields, dance practice, or whatever event you have going on, just get your ingredients out, heat up your pan, and get ready to enjoy a delicious, quick dinner at home.

Here’s how I make my beef stir fry with vegetables.

    Appreciate for the insightful blog update. I was trying to subscribe to your RSS feed, but I wasn’t able to get it working with Google Reader. Is there a problem, or is it my fault (I’m a hopeless technophobe!)?
