This recipe is super easy to put together. I used three grocery store shortcuts because I am all about making life easier whenever possible.
- Stir-Fry Beef Strips – check your butcher for pre-sliced strips of beef. If your butcher does not have them, just find a nice steak (does not need to be an expensive cut here) and cut it into strips or cubes.
- Pre-Shredded Carrots – look in the produce section near the bagged salad mixes for bag of pre-shredded carrots. If not, just shred some regular full-sized carrots using a box grater or your food processor.
- Microwaveable Steamer Stir-Fry Vegetables – I usually have several bags of all kinds of frozen vegetables that you can steam right in the bag in the microwave. I used a bag of the stir-fry variety. You could cut up broccoli, snow peas and whatever kind of vegetables that you like to use in a stir-fry.
Once your beef is about 30 minutes from being done in the slow cooker, prepare your rice on the stove-top or in a rice cooker.
My oldest daughter LOVED this recipe and has specifically requested that I make it again and again for dinner.
Of which I gladly oblige!
