20 Minute Beef Stir Fry

I have a confession to make- I don't stir fry my Stir Fry! Instead, I steam the veggies. Less fat, less mess and tastes delicious. The secret is in the sauce.


4 Bella Sandwich steaks (I buy them from QVC- they can go from freezer to pan)

2 cups broccoli
1 cup mushrooms, quartered
3/4 cup fresh snow peas, trimmed
3 cloves garlic, minced (I use a rasper)
4 carrots, peeled and cut in chunks on the diagonal
1 package rice noodles


1 Cup Makoto Ginger Dressing
3 heaping tablespoons chunky peanut butter
1-2 Tbsp Sirracha hot sauce (I like Ninja Squirrel)

1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
3 scallions, chopped

Fill a large pot with water and bring to boiling.  Add the rice noodles and cook for 3 minutes, drain and set aside to keep warm.

In a large non-stick skillet, brown the steaks, breaking up in pieces until cooked (about 2-4 min). Drain and set aside. Add vegetables and garlic to the skillet, cover and cook on high heat for 6 minutes. Add a tsp of oil if they brown, mine didn't because the pan was wet from the meat.When the vegetables are al dente, pour the sauce on top and mix in. Cover and cook on simmer for 3 min, then add the beef and simmer another 3 min.Spoon mixture over rice noodles in a large bowl and top with scallions and almonds.
