Stir Fry Anything

Getting your 5-a-day is easy when you have a stir fry that is rich in fresh, crunchy vegetables.  Here is a recipe that can be adapted to the meat of your choice and the vegetables of your choice.  Simply slice the meat thinly for tenderness and ease of cooking, add the vegetables of your choice and cook with oil, garlic and chili flakes to taste.  If you really want to be adventurous, you can also add some cashew nuts for protein and for the crunch factor!  If you are using beef, make sure to get a tender cut like sirloin or fillet or marinade it overnight in the sauce to tenderise it. 


Simple, slightly spicy and nutritious - what could be better?
