When school starts again, life gets busier, the days get shorter, and it can seem like there’s a lot less time in the day. Getting a wholesome meal on the table can become quite a challenge, which is why I’m teaming up with Washington State Beef Commission to bring you this weeknight life saver recipe! I’m using top sirloin steak here because it has a lean, yet tender cut that is perfect for stir fry. What you’ll love most about this recipe is its simplicity: marinating the meat only takes about thirty minutes! If you’re really short on time, try chopping the vegetables and preparing the sauce while the meat marinates. This dish is quick, healthy, and downright savory! It’s a winner in my family, and is sure to be in yours too!

 

If you ever set out to make a recipe with any kind of beef and aren’t too sure what cut of meat to use, be sure to check out the Interactive Butcher Counter , Its a great guide to cooking beef properly.
