Fried Stirs!

When I was little my father always referred to stir-fry as Fried Stirs. Which at the time, was hilarious. Now, it's just become what it's called, lol.

Fried Stirs on the cheap!

This is a dish that can be made with whatever meat/protein you have on hand. That package of chicken that was a great buy, but had enough in it for 1.5 meals? Yeah. like that.

Protein, choose one: 1-2 chicken breasts, 3-4 thighs, fairly firm tofu, 1lb beef of any sort except ground, ditto pork.

Vegetables, choose any:frozen broccoli, cauliflower, "winter mix", "california blend", basically whatever you have on hand or was cheap that day in the frozen veg aisle.

cut up protein into bite size pieces, and toss into hot pan with a bit of oil and start frying, stirring often (hence the name, no?) add soy sauce, garlic and ginger to taste, stir, stir, stir. when protein is nearly cooked, add veg, more garlic, more ginger, more soy sauce.
cook just until veg are hot all through.
Serve with rice.
