I’m on a stir fry kick lately.
Most likely because my day job has gone out of control, so I need a quick and healthy meal on the table in minutes when I’m exhausted and hungry at the end of the day.
It wasn’t long ago, that I grabbed a pack of sliced beef to make this beef and asparagus stir fry (still loving the black rice!), and now I’m serving pork with bok choy.
I don’t know what I’d do without the CSA that arrives on my doorstep with a lovely bag of produce, since time to shop is non-existent.
It doesn’t get any easier than chopping a few vegetables, thinly slicing boneless pork, then whipping up an easy sauce with miso paste, ginger and soy sauce.
All I need is my stove top wok, and I can stir fry my pork and veggies to just tender, before I add in my sauce.
I’m happy with a plate of veggies and meat, but Mr. Mike needs the rice or noodles, so a package of whole grain linguine boils on the stove until I’m ready to add it to my stir fry.
Either way, dinner is on the table faster than I could grab take out and get it home before it’s too cold to eat.
I’m off to the day job! Enjoy, and I hope your week won’t be as hectic as mine.
