Zesty Beef Stir-Fry Over Brown Rice

Categories > Dairy Free, Dinner, Entrees, Grain Free, High Protein

Created in partnership with BOU.

Listen up: You can get this flavor-packed beef stir-fry on the dinner table way faster than the Chinese food delivery guy can get to your house. And your body will thank you later.

Your family will, too, since this is a universally satisfying meal with tons of flavor thanks to the easy addition of  BOU Miso.

While it puts beef front and center for meat lovers, it’s 90 percent plant-based. Kids will love that it’s familiar and colorful. Meanwhile, those with more sophisticated palates will appreciate the depth of flavor thanks to ingredients like miso, ginger, soy sauce, coconut oil, and red pepper flakes.

One tip to keep in mind: If you want to make it gluten-free, just swap in liquid aminos or tamari for the soy sauce.

It’s a protein- and antioxidant-rich meal that’s super easy to prepare. Just a few of the nutrients you’ll be getting? Beta-carotene in the carrots, vitamin K in broccoli, vitamin C in cauliflower, vitamin A in peppers, and tons of fiber from all of the veggies and brown rice. Well-rounded is an understatement.
