Quick Beef Stir Fry with Fresh Vegetables

I had to hurry today to make lunch so I threw together a super quick stir fry.  Just over 15 minutes to get lunch on the table.  Not too bad if you ask me!  You will want a tender cut of beef; chicken or shrimp would work well too just adjust the cooking time as necessary.  I used a piece of beef tenderloin the butcher had marked down at the local grocery; not a cheap piece regular price so a rib eye or something of the sort would maybe be a good choice too depending on your budget.

Quick Beef Stir Fry with Fresh Vegetables

  • 3/4 cup long grain rice ~ I prefer jasmine or basmati
  • 1 1/2 cups water or broth
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 6 o.z. mushrooms
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/4 tsp each salt, pepper, garlic powder and crushed red pepper
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 summer squash
  • around a pound of beef
  • 1 – 2 Tbs soy sauce

Bring water to boil and add rice; reduce heat, cover, and simmer 15 minutes or as directed on package.  Meanwhile heat oil in large skillet.  Slice mushrooms and begin to sauté; add sliced onion and cook for about 5 minutes.

Add salt, peppers, and garlic powder; stir in sliced zucchini and squash and simmer about 4 minutes.

Push veggies to sides of pan and add beef and soy sauce; cook another 4 – 5 minutes or until desired doneness.  Rice should be done cooking now as well so stir in rice and serve.
