Tony’s stirfry and BSI recipe!

I had to work an hour late today.  I texted Tony to tell him I was on my way home, and he said “what do you want for dinner?”  I told him I had stirfry on the menu, and I walked in the door to this deliciousness!

I was going to use tofu, but steak was good too!

So Andrea is the hostess of this weeks Blogger Secret Ingredient Recipe Contest – the ingredient this week is Ginger!

When I explained my recipe to Tony and Hannah I think they both threw up in their mouth just a little bit.  Don’t worry!  I am taking it to work tomorrow to subject my co-workers to this amazing combination!

I don’t know what it is about ginger, but it kind of sticks to the back of my throat a bit.  My neighbor brought back ginger beer from his vacation over the summer, and I have that same feeling when I ate my dish.  I should say that I don’t think I have EVER done anything with ginger other than to shave some in stirfry!

Here are the ingredients I used:

I love the new layout of WordPress!  I think its a lot more user friendly for someone like me who isn’t that technical!

Cannot believe tomorrow is Friday again already!  I have to be at work EARLY so it may be a late breakfast post tomorrow.   See you then!

  1. Wow, great recipe Biz! Delicious!

  2. I’m excited about this week’s BSI! I think it’ll be my first entry, plus it works out well b/c I still have ginger root from when I made those ginger ribs.

  3. Your entry looks really good, I wouldn’t have thought to make a salad including ginger.

  4. The stirfry looks yummy, so do the wraps. I love wraps and those look really easy to make. I might give the recipe a try. If I do, I’ll let you know how I (we) like them.

  5. great stir fry (soooo juicy) and great BSI submission! I’m in love with ginger lately. :)

  6. Great stir-fry and BSI salad!!

  9. Great recipe, Biz! Thanks for letting me know you posted it…no need to email, I’ve got you down! :)

  10. I am one of the at-work guinea pigs…and this wrap WAS delicious! The perfect blend of sweet, tangy, and spicy, and the chicken was tender and juicy…great job, Biz!

  11. Great Recipe! Those tacos look amazing!

  12. that looks absolutely delicious!!!

  13. When you’d like some tasty Ginger Beer to go with your dish, try Fentimans Botanically Brewed. It’s made over 7 days starting by fermenting bruised ginger with sugar and yeast, then additional botanicals and water is added to bring the alcohol down below 1/2% so that it can be sold as a soda. The result is an amazing aroma and layers of flavour that you just can’t get without this lengthy process. It’s great all alone or as an ingredient for a Dark & Stormy, Moscow Mule or other mixed drink to complement your stir fry, salad wrap or other ginger inspired dish. Cheers!
