Chilli Coconut Veggie Stir Fry- East Made Easy #BlueDragonMom

I have been terribly sick for the past month, with a virus I picked up from school. What I thought was a cold, has held on for weeks with no prospect of getting better. I finally went to the Dr's and was diagnosed with bronchitis. I am slowly getting better everyday and can not wait to be healthy again. Being sick is exhausting and the last thing on my mind, this past month, was cooking. I did still need to feed my family, so I turned to Blue Dragon to make things easy.

Before I fell sick, I was sent a package full of wonderful Blue Dragon Stir Fry Sauces, Coconut Milk, Noodles and Curry Pastes. The timing couldn't have been better, because little did I know, I'd be sick and need some major help at dinner time. With the help of my goodies, I was still able to create delicious dinners, without slaving away in the kitchen.

Hun... What's for Dinner?| Asian Beef Kabobs-  East Made Easy #bluedragonmom
Stewing beef marinated over night in Broccoli Beef Stir Fry Sauce,
then skewered with cremini mushrooms and red onion. A few minutes on the grill
and you have a wonderful dinner in minutes.

The first two products that caught my eye were the Chilli Coconut Stir Fry Sauce and the Broccoli Beef Stir Fry sauce. I decided to marinate some stewing beef overnight, in the Broccoli Beef Stir Fry Sauce and turn the meat into kabobs the next day. Queenie was in the kitchen when I was pouring the sauce into the zip top bag and asked to smell it. She absolutely LOVED the way it smelled and was more than eager to have kabobs the next evening. With on only a few minutes of prep, to put the meat and veggies onto the skewers; we had a fabulous dinner! The meat was so tender and full of amazing flavour. Slightly sweet, deliciously savoury, these Asian Kabobs were a total hit!

One of my go to meals, when I don't really want to be in the kitchen, is a good veggie stir fry. Hubby had picked up some gorgeous baby bok choy cabbage and snow peas, so I decided to incorporate those into a delicious stir fry. I decided on the Chilli Coconut Stir Fry Sauce, to bring this dish together and it was absolutely delicious. I'm a total wimp when it comes to spice, so I felt it was a bit on the spicy side (I've never had my lips go numb while eating food before. LOL). Hubby on the other hand, was in heaven. The kids opted for a sauceless version of the stir fry, with only noodles, veggies and a drizzle of sesame oil. It was a quick, delicious and healthy meal, on a night where I was dreading making dinner.
