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
