Weeknight Stir-fry Dinner

This is a simple recipe for a weeknight dinner that can be adjusted to feed more people if needed. Stir Fries are usually made with leftover rice but my husband can’t eat rice so I use Orzo pasta instead.

I start by cooking the orzo first. Another good substitute would be brown rice. Doing this first gives the rice/orzo time to cook while you prep the remaining items.

Cut the meat up into bite sized pieces. Use whatever leftover meat you find in your refrigerator. Don’t be afraid to mix up different kinds of meat if you’re feeding a crowd!

Vegetables come next. Take a good look at the refrigerator shelves. I tend to skip this soft ones and go for the crunchy ones. Another good choice is frozen vegetable mixtures. I used Broccoli Normandy for my picture.

At this point, your rice/orzo should be done that you can drain it. Drag out a non-stick deep skillet. If anything isn’t cooked, do those next. If you have to, as things get done, take them out and place in a bowl.

By now everything should be done and all you need to do is assemble it. I start with the Orzo so I can brown it a little bit. Add the veggie and meat(s). If it starts to stick, add a little bit of soy sauce. Serve in Bowls with additional soy sauce on the side. Enjoy!
