    This Thai Beef & Broccoli Stir-Fry is even more delicious than the Chinese version, with more depth of flavor and slightly more spice (this can be adjusted according to your liking). The beef is cut thinly and stir-fried quickly and easily together with broccoli, red pepper, and a delicious stir-fry sauce. The broccoli really works in this dish, as it fully absorbs the sauce and provides that nice added bit of crunch. Serve with plain steamed jasmine rice for an easy Asian comfort food dish your family will love. ENJOY!

    Very Thai Lime Chicken Stir-Fry

    Lime Chicken Stir-Fry
    D.Schmidt

    This dish is very Thai and is my favorite stir-fry recipe. Like most Thai stir-fries, it cooks up really quickly once you have all the ingredients ready. This recipe features the flavor of lime - both lime juice and lime leaf. Lime leaves are an essential part of this stir-fry, so don't skimp on them. You can buy kaffir lime leaves at most Asian/Chinese food stores - look for them in frozen packets. This chicken stir fry also includes vegetables, so you get everything you need in one dish. Just serve with plain rice or coconut rice, and ENJOY this delicious and aromatic dish!

    D.Schmidt for About.com

    Most vegetable stir-fries are a tad on the boring side, but not this one! This dish sings with so much flavor, you'll forget all about its amazing health benefits (plus it's vegetarian and vegan too!). Using a good stir-fry sauce one of the keys to creating a great veggie stir-fry; the other is in the stir-frying - knowing when to add what. At the same time, this recipe is pretty forgiving - you can add your own choice of vegetables, depending on what you have on hand. Enjoy!

    Easy Stir-Fried Vegetables (Vegan-friendly recipe!)

    Stir fried vegetables and rice with chopsticks

    The Spruce 

    Making a "simple stir fry" isn't all that simple. Getting the stir fry sauce to taste just right is usually a challenge. But my Thai stir-fried vegetables is a no-fail recipe, mostly because the stir-fry sauce is made before beginning to fry the vegetables, allowing you to adjust the flavor according to your taste. Try it as a side dish, or make it the main course. Nuts, tofu, wheat gluten, or slices of chicken (if you are non-vegetarian) can be added as a protein source - you'll love it!
