Cooking Challenge: Delicious Stir Fry

The BF recently moved to a new apartment and is getting used to cooking for himself. He’s successfully made several different things, including a Thai chicken dish last night and this absolutely delicious stir fry that we worked on together.

This recipe had four simple ingredients:

  • Frozen stir fry veggies
  • Chow mein noodle kit (noodles and sauce)
  • Turkey
  • Packet of stir fry spice

We used this noodle kit mainly because it was the only one we could find at the store. Bonus points because it was organic.

while the BF chopped the turkey.

We sprinkled the turkey with the stir fry spices and salt and pepper.

(Side note, I was reading so many recipes that I copied the wrong thing down on our store list. Instead of buying turkey cutlets, we bought turkey sausage. The sausage worked just fine though.)

Then we threw the frozen veggies in to the wok to let them defrost.

After the veggies thawed, we threw the turkey in to the wok.

The BF had way too much fun shaking the wok and flipping our food around.

Once the turkey was pretty much done, we threw the veggies back in the wok to for a few more minutes.

Finally we added the noodles back in and drizzled the whole mixture with the sauce and stir fry spices.

Once everything was warm, we dug in. This stir fry was seriously delicious and something we will definitely be repeating again. I loved how much bulk it had and that it kept me full without making me have that nasty over-full feeling.

The leftovers also re-heated really well the a few days later. This was definitely a cooking challenge success.
