- Lean turkey mince- You can absolutely use minced beef or even chicken in this recipe. But it is ultra low fat when you use turkey mince.
- Teriyaki sauce- Forms the base of this stir fry sauce. This sauce is thick so note in the recipe card at the bottom, that there has been water added to the sauce to thin it out a little bit.
- Sriracha- Brings the much-needed heat to the sauce.
- Soy sauce- Brings the heat of sriracha and the sweetness of teriyaki together and balances everything out.
- Ginger & garlic- A must for any stir fry or Asian inspired recipe.
- Broccoli- The all-important vegetable factor. You can use regular broccoli but I've used the Tenderstem because it cooks quickly. You can toss in green beans, or asparagus for another quick-cooking green vegetable.
- Basmati rice- I'm a carb lover, so I always have my stir fry's over rice or noodles, but you can keep this low carb if you want to and wrap the stir fry in lettuce leaves or stuff them into gem leaves.
- Green onions and peanuts- For serving the stir fry. You can skip them or add in some cashews if you prefer.
- Chilli peppers- Again for serving and completely optional. I just had a red chilli in the bottom of my fridge so sliced it and tossed it on the side. But the Sriracha brings enough heat you don't need a chilli pepper.
Step by step cooking directions
Before you start- Cook the rice according to the package instructions. While the rice is cooking, make the stir fry.
Step 1 & 2
Making the sauce and browning the turkey
- To make the stir fry sauce- whisk the Sriracha, soy sauce and teriyaki sauce in a bowl. Add in some water 1 teaspoon at a time until the desired consistency is reached. I like a sauce that is the consistency of very runny honey. It will thicken as in the heat of the pan as it coats the turkey.
- Heat some olive oil or vegetable oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the turkey mince to the hot oil and use a fork to break it up. Continue to cook the turkey until it starts to brown all over. This will only take about 8-10 minutes.
Step 3 & 4
- Once the turkey is browned, add in the ginger and garlic and pour in the stir fry sauce. Stir well to coat the turkey.
- Add in the tenderstem or whatever green vegetable you are using and let the hot sauce cook the broccoli. Using tenderstem this will only take about 3 minutes. You want the broccoli to still have texture and not be overdone.
- Serve over the rice or with noodles. Top with the chopped peanuts and green onions.
Traditionally a stir fry is a meal made up of veggies or meats and an Asian sauce. The great thing about it is that you can customize this incredible mixture of flavours and textures depending on what veggies and meats you have on hand.
- Protein- This stir fry would great with beef mince like I already mentioned or chicken, but really incredible with prawns. You should definitely try that and let me know!
- Veggies- Let's be honest, a stir fry is the best way to clean all the unused veggies out of your fridge. You can add in mushrooms, courgettes, baby corns, snap peas, and almost any other vegetable you can imagine.
- Carbs- This stir fry is fab when it's served over a bed of fluffy rice, but it's equally amazing with some noodles. You can even use spaghetti if you don't have traditional stir fry noodles. Do what you gotta do! And also can be served in gem cups for a lettuce wrap.
This keeps great in the fridge for up to 3 days. To reheat just use the microwave or a non-stick frying pan. The veggies may go a little more tender when the stir fry is reheated, but it's so quick that you really won't notice it.
