I have tried many stir fry recipes over the last 10 years and this is Jack and Grace's favorite. It is a little sweet and a little spicy, just like Grace. The recipe I use is actually just the sauce portion of the recipe. I switch up the protein and vegetable source every time I make it. Typically, I make stir fry when I need to use up left over fresh vegetables. This time it was green beans, asparagus, broccoli, mushrooms and bell pepper. I have never put green beans in the recipe and really loved it. It may become a staple. You can make this entire meal in under 30 minutes if you use Grain Trust Steamed Rice. It only takes a few minutes in your microwave to steam.
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
- protein source
- 3 cloves minced garlic
- fresh vegetables
- 1.5 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- In a small bowl combine soy sauce through crushed red pepper flakes.
- In a large skillet over a medium-high temperature heat 1 tablespoon canola oil; and cook protein source until done, remove and set-aside.
- Add second tablespoon canola oil, cook garlic for 1 minute, add vegetables, and cook until the begin to soften (3-5 minutes).
- Add sauce and protein to vegetables and cook for a few more minutes.
- In a small bowl mix together cornstarch and water. Add to the skillet, mix in and allow sauce to thicken.
- Drizzle with sesame oil before serving.
- Serve over rice.
- I own a Fuzzy-Logic rick cooker. It turns out perfectly each time. The rice is a little sticky and holds its shape.
- You can choose vegetables that work for your family's diet or do what I do sometimes and clean out the vegetable drawer in my fridge.
- This recipe would make a great FODMAP challenge recipe due to the garlic. Try this with other safe foods and in your food journal write down how your gut feels. For more information on FODAMPS refer to: FODMAP, A Closer Look.
