Meat, Veggies

Bold and Zesty Beef Stir-Fry

bold-and-zesty-beef-stir-fry

When I think of a fast and easy dinner I immediately think of 3 dishes- Salad, Spaghetti and Stir Fry! Salad is a given in terms of trying to be healthy but it can make a husband and children cringe at the thought of yet again eating green leafy vegetables. Spaghetti is delish but unfortunately loaded with carbs and calories. Now Stir-fry! Stir-fry is a perfectly simple way to get your family to eat healthy without it seeming like your doing the veggie push. The truth is- when vegetables are loaded down with sauce and seasonings- let’s be honest- they don’t seem so much like vegetables? However, in our case the sauce for my bold and zesty stir-fry isn’t loaded with calories. It has instead been thoughtfully designed to bring out the most flavor with a few simple basic ingredients.

When it comes to my cooking I get asked a certain question/statement from mostly everyone that goes something like this- ” I just don’t know what goes best with what” or “How did you know to mix that with that?” I wish I had a better answer that would give you a magical solution but the answer is simply from experience and because my passion is cooking! So all day long I am constantly thinking about recipes, ingredients, flavors, etc. It is just something that comes naturally. So with that said, my standard answer is typically 1) From trial and error and 2) By leaning on other recipes that I made that were great and taking those same flavors or ingredients and using them together but in a different dish or different way (hence making it my own). So where am I going with this? Glad you asked! This stir-fry is extra special not only because it tastes out of this world, not just because it is healthy and quick but because it incorporates a packet of Healthy Solutions Bold Beef Rub that brings the meat to life and gets rid of the need to try and match this seasoning with that one and so forth. I absolutely hands down love this beef rub as well as all the other rubs because they bring out the most flavor in your dishes and best part is most of the rubs are WITHOUT THE SALT! Yep, NO SALT! Now isn’t that fun?? We all know that salt is the  bomb but it can also be the “BOMB” to your health if you consume to much so why not use seasonings that have been perfectly matched together and conveniently packaged for you so all you have to do season with it. Note: the Bold Beef Rub does  have salt but little to nothing compared to most spice rubs in the market.

I have already stated that the only reviews I do on my blog are good reviews. It’s not that I never have a bad experience with a company or brand (believe me I have) but because my momma always taught me if you can’t say something nice don’t say it at all:)) So if you see a review on this site- you know it is authentic and pure in nature. I just want to help you cook regardless if it is via a recipe of mine or a certain brand. We can always use a helping hand- Am I Right? So go get you some Spice Rubs from Healthy Solutions and call it a day:))

    This looks so delicious! We don’t eat a lot of meat but I think it would be a great meal even with leaving the meat out!

    It’s quite lovely not to use the blog as negative reviews, there is too much negativity already. There is nothing negative about this recipe, the colour is lovely and that spice rub sounds like it adds the punch but still let’s the natural great flavours of the vegetables sing. We don’t eat much salt these days so I’m always looking for ways to beef up flavour without using salt.

    Gorgeous stir-fry. We enjoy stir-fries too. I’m the prep chef for stir-fries and my husband is in charge of the wok. Works for us.

    Oh we love stir-fry and the bold and zesty sounds great! Sneaking in vegetables is a great idea – and hiding them in a bold sauce is perfect. A little of this and a little of that – what a great dinner idea.

    I agree, in my house either pasta/stir fried noodles, or stir fry or Japanese rice bowl dish. Your zesty beef stir fry sounds wonderful! It’s all about the quality of ingredients, heat and seasoning! Yummy!

    Hi there, firstly, I love your page content, and this might possibly sound a little off subject but, I’m an pensioner here in the land of smiles and was wondering if you know where I may perhaps get a cash in hand job writing about thailand??? I am on a state pension & well, here in Koh Samui that does not go too far at this moment in time.!!!

    At my house, I should not even mention what three things for a fast quick meal come to my mind…Frozen pizza, mac n cheese (shutter) and something actually good for you breakfast for dinner. Love, love your stir fry. You have reminded me that this is a quick fast way to enjoy a family dinner on the run. Thanks.
