Guest Post: Stir Fry Peppercorn Beef


Quick and easy meals with leftovers that tastes great until the next day are always part of my repertoire so I am always looking for ways to have dinner ready on the table in less than an hour. After a long day at work, I am not too thrilled to slave over the stove so I would rather make something that I can throw together in less than an hour so that a piping hot meal can be enjoyed in no time.

A simple stir fry always comes to mind especially at times I get a craving for Chinese food. This peppercorn beef is a great alternative without the unwanted and unhealthy ingredients lurking in the seasoning. It is packed with tons of vegetables that adds a wonderful crunch to each bite making it a complete meal you won't even miss the rice!
