Tender marinated beef steak strips with mixed stir fry vegetables, and spaghetti pasta!
School has officially started! What does that mean? It means that Monday through Friday, I make quick & easy meals, if not one of my many Crock-Pot freezer meals! Whenever I make a quick & easy meal it’s usually a one pot or skillet meal, that takes under 45 minutes. One of my favorite things to make during the week is stir fry. Sometimes I get bored with the same old stir fry over rice, so lately I’ve been making spaghetti stir fry!
In this post I’m going to show you how I make my Beef & Vegetable Spaghetti Stir fry!
First things first.. If you don’t eat beef, you can use chicken, or shrimp, or etc. I actually have different spaghetti stir fry recipes that I’ll share in the future, but for now I’ll show you how I make my beef version.
So for the beef, I use flank steak. Yes, I know that it’s not a cheap cut, however I make sure to buy it whenever it’s on sale, and I stock up on it. I find that flank steak is always tender, which is a plus for me, because I can not stand tough meat!
I use frozen vegetables for most of my stir frys. My favorite one is the Oriental blend that has baby corn, water chestnuts, broccoli, carrots, and etc.
I keep my beef & vegetable spaghetti super simple, but it always comes out fabulous. My son even likes it. Check out the finished product.
