This Thai Peanut Beef Stir Fry dinner was inspired by my partnership with General Mills.
Do you guys understand how hard it is for me to not order pizza on the nights Michael goes to school after work? My trigger finger is not as disciplined as my waist would like.
Or how mind numbing it is to prepare the same handful of dinners because Michael’s default request is always spaghetti? I actually banned spaghetti from our home for a while because I was all spaghetti-ed out. And there are only so many french fries one can consume before turning into a potato. Toddler logic…
How about how I would love nothing more than to store a pillow in my cupboard for the brief moment in time where the boys are playing in the family room so I can nap… err… cook dinner?
What would you say if I told you there is a way to put a new dish on your table in 20 minutes? A new dish that is fan-freaking-tastic. And only requires a big skillet.
Did you catch that?
Mmmhhmm. I said one pan.
This dish might look complicated but this is a dinner Michael could make with his limited cooking skills.
And no, I am not talking about four year old Michael. In fact, if I allowed my kids to use the stove, I would be out of a job. Preparing the strips of beef, yes. Potentially burning down our home, not so much.
- The Good Table® Crunchy Thai Peanut
- 1 pound of thin strips of beef
- Whatever vegetables you find in your fridge that need to be cooked ASAP so they don’t get pitched. I know you know the vegetables I’m talking about. The crisper is typically where my vegetables go to die.
- Olive oil to keep everything from sticking to the pan.
- Rice- I used 6 servings of white rice.
- Soy sauce, amino acids, whatever tickles your tastebuds- optional.
Start by dipping the strips of beef in the garlic sauce before coating them in the crust mix.
Easy enough, right?
Next, chop your vegetables into bite-size pieces.
Coat the bottom of the skillet with olive oil, add the strips of beef, and toss in the vegetables. Cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally so the stir fry doesn’t burn.
Serve the stir fry over rice and call it a dinner. It was delicious.
You will find the The Good Table® Crunchy Thai Peanut and the other varieties next to the breadcrumbs at Walmart. Your store might even be as cool as mine and have coupons stuck to the boxes. Ya never know until you look!
