For Thanksgiving my husband smoked the most amazing turkey. We ate and ate and ate from that bird, and I still had a ton of leftover meat. After freezing some of it, there was fresh meat that I needed to use soon.
Well, today came and it was a really long and hard day for us, my son had surgery. He was in the hospital for 6 hours today, which was exhausting for all of us (emotionally and physically). He is doing great and is home now, but we got home later than we expected.
My family was so hungry and I needed a quick and healthy meal FAST that used up the turkey. Turkey Stir-Fry was it…and oh my goodness was it delicious!! I only wished I had doubled it so I could eat it again. The beauty of this recipe is that it is so versatile! You can sub out chicken, shrimp or steak for the turkey, and as far as the veggies go, the combinations are endless. Sub broccoli for the green beans, add mushrooms, water chestnuts or
Just take your leftover meat, add 2 or more vegetables and you will have an amazing, quick, and nutritious meal.
