    Heat remaining oil in wok. Add frozen vegetables; stir-fry for 4 minutes or until vegies are just tender. Return beef to wok or pan; stir-fry for 2 minutes or until heated. Serve topped with onion.


Buy a 1kg packet frozen stir-fry mix; use remaining vegetables in another meal. Measure and chop all ingredients before starting to cook. You can use the same quantity of fresh vegies instead of frozen.
