Since we switched to eating organic, grass-fed, and humanely raised meats, I'm on the lookout for opportunities to incorporate meat without always serving it as the centerpiece. One technique we use at least once each week is to stir-fry, rounding out flavorful pieces of protein with a healthy dose of fresh vegetables and fluffy rice.
While it started for me as a way to stretch our meat dollar further, I think the reason stir-frying has held steady in our cooking rotation is it's a practical way to eat healthy during the week. The meat and vegetables cook in a flash and take just a minute to soak up a quick but flavor-packed blender sauce. You can save even more time by doubling the sauce and prepping extra vegetables so another night's dinner is ready to go.
The method of stir-frying is exactly what it sounds like: Keep the ingredients moving (that is, stir) as they fry in the hot oil. Make sure you have all your ingredients prepped and ready to go before you begin, as the cook time is short and requires constant movement.
