Stir Fry Deliciousness

Hello all!  Happy Sunday!  Good news- I survived my race-but that story is for my other post-this post is reserved for the featured Sunday Dinner Recipe! Yay! This week’s recipe is easy, versatile, and of course-delicious!  This week’s recipe is Stir Fry Deliciousness-and yes, that is its real name.  Get over it. Now I know that stir fry has been around forever, so I’m not trying to claim that I have created stir fry-that would be ridiculous.  But I have made it yummier, thanks to a secret, non-traditional stir fry ingredient…don’t worry…I’ll tell you what it is a little later.

This recipe, is super easy, very quick, and only uses two pans (which is always a plus because dishes are lame). I made the stir fry this week with beef, but it is just as good with chicken, tofu, or just veggies-like I said, very versatile.  So without further ado, this week’s featured Sunday Dinner Recipe!

Stir Fry Deliciousness

Active time: 30 mins

Serves: 4


  • 3 tbsp EVOO (divided)
  • 1 lb thin flank steak
  • 1 green pepper, 1 orange pepper
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 c stir fry sauce (I use House of Tsang) can use more if necessary
  • 2 packs Uncle Ben’s 90 second rice (I get plain white and Ollie does Jasmine)
  • 1 bunch scallions
  • 1 can artichoke bottoms (yes-this is the secret ingredient!)
  • salt and pepper


  • Drain artichoke bottoms and cut each bottom into 8 pieces.
  • Thinly slice beef into 1 inch strips
  • Chop peppers, onion, and scallions into long skinny strips
  • In a small pan heat 1 tbsp of EVOO
  • In a separate, larger pan, heat 2 tbsp EVOO
  • In smaller pan saute artichoke bottoms until very crispy-feel free to sample a few as they’re cooking-they are delicious!
  • In larger pan saute beef on high heat until cooked through
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Once beef has fully cooked add garlic, onions, peppers, and scallions to the pan
  • As the veggies are cooking microwave each packet of rice for 90 seconds
  • Once artichoke bottoms are crispy add them to the pan with the beef and other vegetables
  • Add 1/4 c stir fry sauce to pan, and stir to coat vegetables
  • Once the vegetables are soft, but not caramelized, remove them from the heat and spoon over rice
  • If you have a couple of fortune cookies on hand (and I just happened to!) serve them alongside the stir fry deliciousness!
  • ENJOY!

Do you have any stir fry secrets?  What did you think of the artichoke bottoms?  I LOVE them in this recipe (and in MANY other recipes) even though they are not traditionally found in Asian cuisine. Thanks for reading, xo Whitney
