Instead of take-out, make an easy shrimp stir-fry for dinner using steamed brown rice, forzen shrimp, and frozen stir-fry vegetables.
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons peanut oil or vegetable oil
1 pound frozen deveined large shrimp, thawed and peeled
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 (1 lb.) bag frozen stir-fry vegetables, thawed and drained
4 cups steamed brown rice, for serving (cook about 2 cups dry)
How to Make It
In a small bowl, whisk together broth, orange juice, soy sauce, cornstarch and sugar; set aside.
Heat oil in wok or large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add half of garlic and stir-fry, about 2 more minutes. Transfer to plate.
Add vegetables and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 3 minutes. Stir sauce again and add to pan, stirring until thickened, about 2 minutes. Return shrimp to pan and toss to coat. Serve with rice.
Wonderful meal, easy to prepare and delicious! I added some chicken and precooked the shrimp in a garlic butter sauce but otherwise followed everything exactly. Might try it with a little ginger instead of orange juice next time.
