Mom's Stir-Fried Beef and Vegetables

Serves 4 to 5

This Chinese-style skillet dish was one of my mother's recipes. When I was still living at home, I enjoyed it as a nice change of pace from the usual. It is not authentic Chinese cooking, but it is a quick, easy, healthy and delicious main dish for a busy weeknight that needs only a side of rice for a complete meal.


In large skillet, cook ground beef and onion until lightly browned. Add canned vegetables, peas, celery, green pepper and water. Simmer, covered, about 7 minutes. Blend together cornstarch, sugar and ginger. Gradually stir in soy sauce. Add to skillet; cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Serve with chow mein noodles and rice.
