This was a great meal for dinner tonight. I used stir-fry meat that come already sliced to cut down on my prep time. My husband rated it an 8.5 out of ten, which is great for him. Next time I think we will add some mushrooms to the mix as well.
Beef-and-Green Onion Stir-fry
You can substitute presliced steak for the sirloin. Look for it in the meat department of your grocery store. Serve the stir-fry over hot cooked rice, if desired.
