Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry Recipe – 8 Smart Points

Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry

I can honestly never get enough of Chinese stir fry. I love it in all forms. But the restaurant version can be pretty high in Points. So I like to try my hand at healthy knock-offs of my favorite Chinese fast food dishes. One of the easiest and best attempts resulted in this delicious Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry Recipe that is so ridiculously good, it’s hard to believe it’s just 8 Smart Points. Marinating the beef and making sure to cut it against the grain, helps to keep it tender and flavorful. This recipe also works really well with chicken or shrimp, as an alternative to beef. Serve it atop some steamed brown rice, or just enjoy it as is!
