Veal stir-fry

Veal stir-fry only takes a few minutes to cook.

Stir-fried veal and green beans is a Chinese dinner that can be made faster than sending out for Chinese food. It takes several minutes to gather the ingredients for stir-fried dishes, but only a few minutes to cook. A stir-fry tip is to line up all of the ingredients on a plate or cutting board in order of use. Then you won’t have to keep referring to the recipe while cooking.

Short cut tip: Omit the rice recipe below and serve the stir-fried veal over plain rice.

Helpful hints: If you prefer not to use sherry, unsalted chicken broth can be used. Boneless, skinless chicken breast can be substituted for the veal. 2 crushed garlic cloves can be used instead of bought minced garlic. Your wok or skillet should be very hot so the veal will be crisp.

Countdown: Marinate veal. Prepare other ingredients. Microwave rice. Stir-fry veal dish. Stir-fry rice.

To buy: 3/4 pound veal cutlet,1 small bottle sherry, 1 bottle reduced-sodium soy sauce, 1 jar minced garlic, 1 bottle sesame oil, 1/2 pound green beans, 1 cucumber, 1 package microwaveable brown rice and 1 package frozen peas.

Staples: cornstarch and black peppercorns.
