Ginger and Teriyaki Beef Stir Fry

 I found myself fancying vegetables tonight so thought a stir fry would hit the right spot. 

This was a very quick and easy dish to prepare, cook and eat.  Love the freshness of the crisp vegetables and I have to admit that teriyaki would also be one of my favourtie sauces to use.  I has a sweetness yet saltiness that I enjoy and it can be used with all meats.

Everyone enjoyed dinner, there was some left over which has beccome lunch for tomorrow so that was a good sign too.

My other good news is that I am now the proud owner of Heston's DVD - How To Cook Like Heston.  I actually won this from a competion which was run by Lorraine over at Not Quite Nigella.
