What do you do when you want something that’s quick, filling, tasty, healthy, has minimal ingredients and will leave you enough leftovers for lunch tomorrow? You whip up a Thai beef stir fry, of course.

As a new mom, I’ve quickly learned that I have to be strategic in the kitchen. There’s really no time to mess around. The going rate of my kitchen time is about 20 minutes, so I’m always dreaming up meal ideas that will yield the most in terms of flavor, portion, and nutrients. (Minimal clean-up is also a bonus.) This easy Thai beef stir fry recipe checks all of those boxes, and it’s cheaper and healthier for you than ordering in Thai food, which can be heavy on the saturated fat. All I’m seeing here are wins!

Aromatics like garlic, onion, and fresh basil leaves are plentiful in this recipe, while fish sauce and oyster sauce lend Asian flavors. For crunch, vitamins, and texture, I added crisp-tender veggies like snow peas, mushrooms, and bell peppers. But the beauty of making a stir-fry recipe is that you can use up most of the veggies you already have in the fridge—you may not even need to hit up a grocery store. Fresh and frozen vegetables will work and don’t be shy to load this baby up. The more veggies, the better.

Serve this Thai stir-fry over jasmine rice, brown rice, or quinoa. The grains can be cooked beforehand to save time, or while the stir-fry is sizzling away.
