Beef Vegetable Stir Fry

I make this stir fry for dinner quite often. It’s a fast, healthy meal to throw together, and the flavors are wonderful.

Sriracha, if you’ve never had it, is a wonderfully spicy chili sauce that can be found in the Asian section of many grocery stores. It’s thicker and more flavorful than American pepper sauces and has a wonderful aroma. The heat of the sauce is nicely balanced by the coconut milk, … Continue Reading →
