Sesame Beef Stir-Fry

After a super crazy { fun! } weekend, I’m so grateful for quick, easy, weeknight meals.

Yet, instead of cooking in the kitchen this weekend where I should’ve been, I was climbing rocks, hanging from trees and dodging waterfalls.

Ok, not really.  But, I was shooting someone who was!  Forgive me?

I had the opportunity to do a fitness photo shoot with a beautiful model.

How rad is that?

I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity.  And the photos we did are amazing.

Anywho…on to the recipe.  Which is what you came for in the first place right?

Ok.  First, whip up all your sauce ingredients and set them aside.  Then, get yourself some lean sirloin steak and slice it real thin, like this.

Next, put it in a bowl so that you can toss it with salt.

Slice your green onions into bite-size sticks and rinse your (isn’t it your favorite super-food too?) spinach.  They’ll both take a splash in the pan!

Then, get your sesames at the ready to top it all off!

    That sounds like one really cool opportunity! And meals like this are perfect for during the week – things always get so crazy that the last thing I feel like doing is making a fussy meal. And I do love a good stir-fry!
