This simple five ingredient recipe for Beef and Vegetable Stir-Fry is a perfect choice when you have some leftover roast beef on hand. All you need is some frozen mixed vegetables and some stir fry sauce and you'll have dinner on the table in less than 15 minutes.

This is a full meal all in itself. All you need to serve with it is some hot cooked rice, either brown or white. But you could add a fruit salad or a nice green salad tossed with some fresh mushrooms and drizzled with a simple vinaigrette.

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup stir fry sauce
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 2 cups cubed cooked roast beef

How to Make It

Heat the olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium high heat. Add the frozen vegetables and the water. Stir, cover the skillet, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, shaking the pan once during cooking time, until the vegetables are thawed. 

Meanwhile, mix the stir fry sauce and the cornstarch in a small bowl. Add this mixture to the skillet and stir to combine.

Add beef and stir again. Cover the skillet and cook over low heat for 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are crisp-tender and the beef is hot.

Serve with cooked rice or egg noodles.
