  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup stir-fry sauce
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 2 cups cubed cooked roast beef

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat the olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the frozen vegetables and the water. Stir, cover the skillet, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, shaking the pan once during cooking time, until the vegetables are thawed. 

  2. Mix the stir-fry sauce and the cornstarch in a small bowl. Add this mixture to the skillet and stir to combine.

  3. Add beef and stir again. Cover the skillet and cook over low heat for 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are crisp-tender and the beef is hot. Serve with cooked rice or egg noodles.
