Stir Fry:My Go-To Healthy, Easy Weeknight Meal

Share it Please
Don't get me wrong, I love to cook. I love baking, cooking and spending time in the kitchen, but let's be honest here, there are about 10 million other things I have to get done throughout the typical weekday of being a work-at-home mom! Between juggling a full-time job, a part-time job and a few freelance accounts, I'm desperate for simple and healthy meal solutions when dinnertime comes around.


I came across this recipe by one of my favorite food blogs: Gimme Some Oven. We love stir fry around here, but it can get a little boring if you don't switch it up every now and again. This particular recipe blends beef, mushrooms and kale in an amazingly tasty ginger-spiked sauce that guarantees you'll be licking your bowl asking for more when you're done.

I know kale doesn't immediately jump to mind when you think of bowl-licking-worthy food, but I really love using it in this recipe to round out the dish. It helps stretch the beef a little more to feed a few more mouths but doesn't detract from the flavor of the dish. And bonus = uber healthy ingredient!

I didn't change much in the original recipe, just used button mushrooms because they were what I had on hand and sprinkled a few toasted sesame seeds on the top before serving.

What are your favorite go-to meals when you want to feed your family well but quickly during the week?
