Directions

Mix meat with soy sauce, garlic, rice wine, ginger powder, sugar and corn starch in a bowl.

Heat olive oil in a large pan to Medium heat. When hot, add chopped onion & let sizzle for a minute. Then add meat. When meat is browned a bit, add green onion and ginger slices. Saute, moving meat around in the pan for about 3-5 minutes.

Meanwhile, separate veggies into 2 bowls: One for hard veggies, one for delicate leafy veggies. Add garlic sauce, a little additional soy sauce, and a light sprinkle of powdered ginger to vegetables.

Add veggies to pan--crunchy veggies first. Very hard veggies should be allowed to cook until slightly soft. You may want to steam very hard veggies (like broccoli stalks) in the microwave for a minute before adding them. Add delicate veggies last. Mix in with meat, and cook until slightly wilted.

Serve with Rice!

**Adjust Soy Sauce and Garlic Sauce amounts accordingly to minimize salt intake.

    As the previous reviewer said, the meat is not listed in the nutritional facts. There are not 3 cups of veggies listed also (I counted 1.5 cups, plus a broccoli spear). Finally, the serving size is 1, and almost six oz of meat and 3 cups of veggies are a lot for 1 person. 391 cal w/chicken and rice. - 10/17/09

    It appears the calorie content/full ingredient list is missing the meat. Am I the only one who noticed this? I thought it was too good to be only 250 calories. - 8/22/09

    Chopping all of the vegetables took a while but it was worth it. I did add a little extra cornstarch and some chicken broth so that I could have more sauce. Great fix when you are craving Chinese. - 1/7/08
