Super Easy Beef Stir Fry

Stir fry has been my go-to meal since college. It is easy, uses barely any dishes, and is the perfect mix of vegetables and protein. Probably my favorite thing about it is how it is super filling without making you feel bloated or sick afterwards. For my fellow IBS sufferers out there, you know what I am talking about!

I have used a variety of marinades over the years. My favorite pre-made being Trader Joe's Island Soyaki sauce. But I have also done a good job at replicating the recipe myself, which is what I include below for the recipe.

This time around, I made it with beef strips, but it also tastes just as good with chicken, shrimp or tofu.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
