Quick Beef Stir-Fry|HarassedMomThis heat makes cooking unbearable. No one wants to stand over a hot stove and prepare a meal that no one really feels like eating anyway.

We have only been back home for 2 nights and both nights have been quick and easy dinners. We had a smoked chicken salad yesterday for lunch which was absolutely divine, if I had taken a photo I would have shared the recipe today instead of last nights dinner.Quick Beef Stir-Fry|HarassedMom

I found this recipe online and made a list of stuff we needed, mainly just the veggies and set off to buy them but was rather horrified at the price of snap peas – the small bag at Pick n Pay was R45, I ended up getting the same size bag at Spar for R21, which I still felt was a little too much but I really wanted to have them and not substitute for normal green beans.Quick Beef Stir-Fry|HarassedMom

I generally suck at making stir-fry’s. I tend to over cook everything but this recipe cooks everything separately which I did and it works MUCH better (obviously).

I did alter the recipe slightly because the sauce was very sugar heavy and not really Weigh-Less friendly.Quick Beef Stir-Fry|HarassedMom
