Organic Beef and Vegetable Stir-Fry

I've spent a lot of time trying to recreate Chinese and Japanese foods at home. We've found a few favorite recipes, but they are far from healthy. Lots of butter and oils.. they taste super good! But they are more of a splurge meal. I decided I was going to find something that could satisfy our want for "take out" but still be healthy for us. TA-DA! This is it! It was SO good and even splurging on the organic, grass-fed steak, it's still cost friendly too at $5/person!

Side note - If you haven't already, go and watch the documentary Fed Up. We rented it the other night and I feel as though I've been lied too my entire life! You think you understand how the food industry works... you have NO idea. So, that extra $5 for my organic, grass-fed steak... I'll take it any day over what I know now about all the other meats! Ok.. off my soap box ;)

It's easy, quick and GOOD! Even the 15 month old was chowing down on this recipe. Took me about 30 minutes to prepare. We have a rice cooker, so while I was making the recipe I had our brown rice cooking so everything finished at the same time. Enjoy!!
