This Steak and Vegetable Stir Fry dinner was a winner. The whole Hughes clan approved of this one. If you have never had broccoli coleslaw before, you will definitely want to give this recipe a try. Sneak some extra vegetables into your diet in a fun way with this stir fry recipe.
What kind of broccoli coleslaw should you use?
The broccoli coleslaw I used was Mann’s Broccoli Cole Slaw, which is a shredded vegetable mix of broccoli, carrots, and red cabbage. It doesn’t sound like much, but I am telling you, with the right sauce, it can taste fantastic, and our kids loved it. Tossing it in with a little garlic, ginger, and soy sauce made this Steak and Shredded Vegetable stir fry absolutely delicious!
Honestly, I think I am going to have to come up with more ways to use broccoli coleslaw now that I have seen my kids’ reactions to it! Thank you, Manns!
My kids loved this dinner.
Sometimes my kids surprise me. This was one of those times. There is no hiding the veggies in this stir fry, so I wasn’t sure what my kids’ reactions would be when they saw that most of the stir fry was, in fact, vegetables. But apparently, when you shred the vegetables so that the broccoli stops looking like broccoli and more like veggie confetti, my kids are eager to dig in.
My youngest (9 years old) announced a couple of bites in that he thought the “chicken” tasted good. (steak)
My other two kiddos loved it all and were asking for seconds.
There is just something about vegetables being shredded that makes them fun to eat, for young and old alike. My kids had NO idea they were eating broccoli and carrots, actually, but they were curious about the “purple stuff” (red cabbage).
When we explained what was in the dinner they’d eaten, they were pleasantly surprised. My middle-school aged son let me know the next day that he likes meat with vegetables now! (Only took us 12 years to get here!) 🙂
A healthy dinner that tastes great for just 3 WW SP per serving.
I considered adding rice or chow mein noodles to this recipe, but I decided to make it without them first, just to see if they would be necessary. After taking a couple of bites, I knew I could leave the carbs out, so I did. If you are trying to bulk up the meal, or if you are feeding a larger crowd, using rice or chow mein noodles would be a quick and inexpensive way to do it. Alternatively, you could toss in an extra bag of broccoli coleslaw.
