Spicy beef & vegetable stir fry

First time I made stir fry I didn’t even have a wok to cook it in. I searched for a recipe, since a friend of mine told me I had to try it out, you have to understand it was years ago when such dishes weren’t even on the menus of restaurants in Zagreb. After finding the recipe, the only thing left was to actually find a store selling all of the ingredients needed, even felt like I was on a treasure hunt. Nevertheless I found all the ingredients and used the largest pan I had to prepare it in.

It was so simple to make and all of those flavours got me to fall in love with this way of preparing vegetables and meat. After that, I got a wok for my birthday and until today I’ve cooked in it so much that I’ve replaced it a couple of times for a new one. Cooking can be easy if you enjoy what you’re doing!

  2. I’ve been making stir fries longer than I care to remember – probably seriously back in the 80’s when I took a Chinese cooking class. It’s one of my favorite meals because you can make it your own with the sauce and especially with the veggies you use. Looks like a good recipe πŸ™‚
