Mustard and soy sauce really add flavor to this juicy flank steak from Kristin Roberts of Colorado Springs, Colorado. "With a potato dish, green salad and crusty bread, this is not only my favorite meal but a frequent request of family and friends," she writes.
Tender strips of flank steak share the stage with julienned carrot and red pepper, fresh mushrooms and broccoli florets in this full-flavored feast for two. For traditional accompaniments to a stir-fry, consider hot tea and fortune cookies. O serve with fresh cubed fruit and orange sherbet for dessert.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

“I found this wonderful, quick recipe in a book years ago,” recalls Janet Singleton in Bellevue, Ohio. “It’s been a favorite for special occasions ever since! I like to serve it with twice-baked potatoes and a spinach salad.”
