I’m sure most of you love stir fries & chilli fries. I prefer seafood but my family loves meats. But when it is a chilli fry or stir fry then I really enjoy it. I prepare simple roasts which are really very handy when you are running short of time or are behind schedule.
There are numerous ways of making a stir fry or a chilli fry. They are so versatile. I made this simple but delicious spicy beef stir fry with capsicum/green peppers which turned out fabulous.
It tastes just wonderful stuffed in bread rolls as a quick snack or a dry work lunch. It is good to pack this as a school lunch as it is easy to handle as compared to messy & drippy food. You can have this at breakfast with fresh bread slices if you like.
Many a time I make this Beef & Capsicum Stir Fry for dinner & we enjoy it with pavs, bread slices or with chapattis. If you like it very spicy then just add more red or green chillies to increase the heat! Besides, it goes well as a starter with cocktails.
Well, if you are looking for a break on a week end then this stir fry will definitely give you a much needed break! :D
