Feeding My Husband - A Very Old Shaun Lunch & Recipe

You'll have to excuse the quality of the picture, it is the only one I could find for this post on short notice.

I made Shaun's favorite stir fry recipe for dinner last night and he mentioned how much he likes the recipe and how great the leftovers are for bentos the next day. This was followed by "You should add a post on that." Well, I can definitely add the post, but there were no leftovers to make said bento, so I'm recycling a really old picture because it is a meal worth sharing.

Stir Fry Bento Lock and Lock

This would be a larger 2-sided Lock & Lock box. It's great in that each side lifts out separately so you can have a food that needs to be warmed and still have a food that needs to be cold or room temperature. In this case, he has a salad of sorts, steamed rice, a beef stir fry, and a little pig bottle for extra soy sauce.

And the stir-fry recipe that everyone needs to try! (I've shared it on my mommy board a number of times and the response is favorable.)

1.5 lbs, your choice of meat, sliced for stir fry
4-5 cups of veggies, either fresh and sliced or frozen
Sauce:
1 packet of Italian Salad dressing powder
1/2 cup of orange juice
1/4 cup of oil
2 tbsp of soy sauce

Mix the 4 ingredients together very very well.
Cook your choice of meat in a little Italian salad dressing or a couple of teaspoons stir fry sauce, until cooked through
Add veggies and well-mixed sauce and stir-fry until veggies are desired texture.

That's it, so easy, but very very good and great for a bento leftover if you have microwave access.

  3. I always thought stir fry uses Chinese ingredients but you've not introduced me to a whole new way to tantalize our taste buds! :D Thanks!
