Gingered Beef and Red Peppers Stir Fry

Stir-fry is popular in Debbie Williams' Ashland, Ohio home. “My oldest son especially likes this one,” she writes. With its pleasant ginger flavor, sweet red peppers and bright green snap peas, it's easy to see why!

    I used a frozen 24 oz. bag of stir-fry Asian style vegetables and followed the directions on the bag for cooking the vegetables. I also used ground ginger so that flavor was not as pronounced. I enjoyed it and would like to try it again with fresh ginger.

    Tastey! I didn't have snap peas so I used 1/2 a yellow onion & peas instead.

    This is a delicious and easy recipe that my family loves. I usually make way more than the recipe calls for and there are NEVER and leftovers. It's a great alternative to calling ahead for Chinese take-out.

    Love this recipe! I've made it many times over. Sometimes I double the recipe and freeze the other half for later. It always comes out great.
