Beefless Veggie Stir-Fry

This is a delicious and easy meal that you can whip up quickly with items you always have on hand.  My taste-testers said it was very yummy as they cleaned their plates:) You can serve this with a big salad and my Perfect Brown Rice recipe below.  You can also make this with 1/2 the package of beefless tips and add more of your favorite vegetables.  It would be delicious with snow peas and water chestnuts.  You can also spice it up by adding some hot peppers.

  3. How unusual. It looks like beef stew, but the ingredients are Asian. You are such an imaginative cook.
