Theresa's Mixed Nuts: If It's Beef You Want, I Got It in a Beef & Veggie Stir Fry

If It's Beef You Want, I Got It in a Beef & Veggie Stir Fry

Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.


It's really hard to believe that this time next year I will be the mother to a college student. Mariah just started campus tours for her top college picks, which really made it start to feel real. For years we've been teasing her about her eating habits, wondering how she plans on fitting in with her fellow classmates because she doesn't like Chinese food. How can you not like Chinese food? It's delicious, it's fast, and it's cheap. It's a college staple! In a last ditch effort to grow her love of the cuisine, last week I made her this Beef & Veggie Stir Fry recipe that I found on Golden Blossom Honey. 

Beef & Vegetable Stir Fry

Since it has a lot of her favorites- broccoli, cauliflower, and beef, I had a feeling she'd be sold. Well, not exactly.  If we would have left the sauce off, it would have been a winner. But, we're finding her issue is with soy sauce. Oh well, at least she tried it, and in the end there was more for me and Jason. We loved everything about this dish and figure once we ship her off to college, this recipe will be going right into our regular dinner menu rotation. 

Ingredients
1/2 cup low-sodium beef broth
1 Tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon Golden Blossom Honey Mustard
2 teaspoons peanut oil
8 ounces top round beef, cut into strips
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 head broccoli, cut into bite-size pieces
1 small head cauliflower, cut into bite-size pieces
1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1/4 cup unsalted peanuts, coarsely chopped
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  1. I suffered hunger at college because with all the studies I could not work as well and my parents did not exactly care :) so any food given to my would be my fave back in those days LOL I used to live on a handful of pasta and a handful of frozen veggies a day as my only meal.
    Does that peanut oil taste like peanuts? Does Mariah know how to cook?

    1. I don't think your situation is that uncommon, unfortunately. Alissa over at An Apel A Day said that a lot of her students wrote down in their questionnaire at the beginning of the year that one of the things they were most worried about was not having enough money to eat on. That is just so very sad to me.
      Mariah has no interest in learning to cook. Complete opposite of Allison, who loves to be in the kitchen. Don't get me wrong, she eats healthy snacks, but when it comes to meals, she'd prefer to grab some Ramen noodles or Poptarts.
      I don't think peanut oil tastes like peanuts. It's just a healthier alternative to veggie oil. My stir fry tastes the same no matter which oil I use, so I always go for the healthier option in my cupboard.

  4. That looks so good! I love stir fry. It's just about the only thing I order at Chinese restaurants. It's certainly a step up from the Chinese food I ate in college... $.99 store bought ramen.
