Tasty Tuesday: Summer Stir Fry

There's a heatwave in full effect right now. It is beyond hot here in the DFW. While on the way home this evening (let's say around 6 or so) the temperature read 111 degrees. Yes, that's right 111 degrees and no matter what my air is set on, if I am not sitting right under the vent, I break out into a sweat - FOR REALS!!! I've been dying to say that for some time now (lol).

Anyhoo, today is Tuesday so this calls for another installment of Tasty Tuesday and with this heat who in their right mind would want to cook? Well, you guessed it - moi! Presenting a quick and easy...

Instead of firing up the oven or slaving over a hot full burning stove, I opted to chop up some veggies and drop them in the wok with 1 pound of pre-sliced skirt steak. In all of 20 minutes this delicious healthy dish was ready to serve over steamed white rice.

Thumbs up from Mr. SpkH!!!

Looking for something healthy and quick, go on, give it a try. Sip a cold glass of white wine with this meal and you're good to go.
