Easy Weeknight Stir-Fry

Written by COA Nutrition Team On September 3, 2021

Stir-fry is a great go-to recipe for a quick and healthy dinner! It’s perfect for using up all the random veggies you have when you’re waiting for your next grocery trip. This recipe has a 5-ingredient easy-as-pie stir-fry sauce!



  • 1/2 cup chicken broth, low-sodium
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce, low sodium
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar, distilled
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoon honey


  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1 bunch broccoli
  • 2 medium carrot
  • 1/2 medium bell pepper, red
  • 2 clove garlic
  • 1-pound beef steak, any cut
  • 2 cup brown rice, raw
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Whisk together the 5 sauce ingredients and set aside. Chop all veggies and slice meat, if not already done. Set rice to cook ahead of time.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat and add chopped onion. Sauté until slightly translucent. Add garlic and veggies and cover, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until vegetables begin to soften.
  3. Meanwhile, cook beef in a separate skillet until brown, then add to veggies.
  4. Pour sauce over everything and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5-10 minutes, until veggies are done to liking and sauce has thickened a bit. Sauce will continue to thicken off the heat.
  5. Serve over brown rice and garnish with green onions or sesame seed, if desired.

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Yes, you should get an air fryer!

There are a lot of questions popping out when it comes to this latest kitchen craze. Is it worth buying an air fryer? Here are some reasons why we think so: • Easy to clean • Easy to use • Safe to use • Healthier meals • Doesn’t take up much space • Faster Than Oven Cooking An air fryer is an incredibly easy way to cook just about anything. You place the food in a fryer-style basket and hot air rapidly circulates all around the food, making the food crisp – much like deep-frying, but without the oil. You can cook anything you’d make in the oven. So, yes, DO IT!
