Ground Beef Stir Fry

Paleo Ground Beef Stir Fry

Need some inspiration for a quick dinner tonight? How about a little stir fry to get the creative juices flowing?

My friend Vic is the King of the Wok! He just recently published his second Kindle Paleo cookbook, both of which have a host of Paleo friendly stir-fry recipes.

Whether you use a wok, a heavy iron skillet or a regular ole’ pan…a healthy stir fry meal can be whipped up in a matter of minutes.

It’s as simple as this: throw a bunch of your favorite veggies in the pan, add some chicken, beef, game meat, offal or seafood…stir stir stir like a mad-man (or -woman!) and serve! Donzo! :)

In this recipe I used ground beef for the first time and it turned out so well that I wanted to share with y’all.

Another good thing about stir fry is it’s so simple a ten year old could handle it. Assuming you don’t mind having 10 year olds prepare your meals.

Get in the kitchen and give it a try. Make it a Stir Fri-day kinda night! Then change it up by adding your favorite ingredients or, you know, whatever is left in your fridge. ;)
