There are a lot of way to start of an Americanized Asian week that are cheap. Things such as frozen Orange Chicken mixes are now common place in every grocery store, but nothing quite takes the cake like a great stir-fry.
It’s really simple, just toss in a pan and you’re done. Well, maybe not that simple, but close.
I enjoy the straight forward method of stir frys. I started out with some left-overs that I had from last week.
- Broccoli Slaw - $1’s worth left
- Chicken stock - One cup’s worth
I tossed the slaw in the pan with some garlic and ginger (the real stuff please). I tossed in some florets of broccoli and diced green pepper as well. After that, I added a 6 oz mixture of soy sauce with notes vinegar and sriracha for balance and tossed in the stick stock.
After the liquid went down by 1/2. I tossed in the 3/4 pound of sliced round sirloin (surprisingly $5/lb) marinated in soy, ginger, and sriracha.
Then, once it’s done it’s done. It’s fine plain or over rice.
