The best part of throwing a weeknight party is being able to enjoy time with family. With this flavorful stir-fry on the menu, you'll be out of the kitchen with time to spare! —Patricia Swart, Galloway, New Jersey
Our taste test panel couldn't wait to try this stir-fry from Janet Lowe of Kennewick, Washington. The flavor is very similar to restaurant-style dishes. A pleasant peanut sauce coats the meat and vegetables, giving the entree Thai flair.
I like to serve this stir-fry over penne pasta, but feel free to use whatever variety you have on hand. The recipe also makes a filling meatless dish when you leave out the beef strips.—Elaine Norgaard, Penn Valley, California
We never feel like we're missing out on meat when this super supper is on the table. Not only is it a quick dinner to whip up on warm summer nights, but it is one of the meals that my husband requests most. —Tracy Holaday of Muncie, Indiana
Peanut butter gives this tasty blend of red peppers, snow peas and shrimp its Thai flavor, while ginger and red pepper flakes spice it up. The colorful main dish, served over pasta, was sent in by Jeanne Fisher of Simi Valley, California.
Judy Brown of Rockdale, Texas makes her own picante sauce for this beefy dish, but she suggests you can also use a store-bought brand. "My husband doesn't care for Asian food," Judy writes, "but he likes this great dish with its Mexican flair."
A hint of curry makes this meal-in-one a vibrant change of pace from weeknight staples. "I like to add a dash of red pepper flakes to the stir-fry for extra spice," shares Judie White of Florien, Louisiana.
"I received this recipe from a friend when I was trying to eat more meatless meals," says Louisville, Kentucky's Denise Lee. "Much to my surprise, my family didn't mind the tofu and still ask me to make it all time."
“I downsized this handy one-pot recipe years ago for my husband and me,” writes Wendy Nuis from Stokes Bay, Ontario. “It's delicious, versatile and so easy to double when company comes.”
TIP: “Try substituting Italian sausage for pork or adding extra veggies for more color and nutrition,” Wendy says.
“I love shrimp and I’m always looking for new ways to fix it,” explains Josie Smith from Winamac, Indiana. This attractive shrimp combination features crunchy peanuts and vegetables with a pleasant hint of ginger.
