Healthy Fast Food Part One

In reality, fast food is probably the most healthy kind since when we cook quickly, we tend not to overcook and destroy nutrients.

The fast food found at your local burger joint has nothing to do with the kind of fast food I'm describing.

Tonight, I found myself alone with a small head of bok choy, an onion, and a few broccoli heads. A scavenging trip to the freezer revealed a tiny bag of lean steak that we had cut up and frozen "for stirfry".

Yes!

I browned the meat first in sesame oil with a chopped garlic clove and the onion. This was set aside for a few minutes.

I whacked up the veggies. Since it was dinner for one ... me, I left the pieces nice and big ... none of this dainty bite size nonsense for FC.

Once the veggies had been around the wok a few times, I added the meat back in. This was all tossed around together and then a half cup of sauce that consisted of Teriyaki sauce, tabasco, vinegar,wine, and a little cornstarch went in.

At that point, the heat is turned off and everything gets folded and flipflopped until it's all coated with the thickened sauce glaze.



Then you eat it.

Prep time under 30 minutes.

The awareness of the fast food these days is increasing at an alarming rate due to
its availability always and the taste. Therefore, you do not need to eat fast food
for eating sake but you have to eat a healthy fast food
