Ingredients

For the Sauce

  • 3 tbsp (45 g) soy sauce gluten free if needed
  • ¼ cup (84 g) honey
  • ¼ cup (56 g) peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp (30 g) Chinese cooking wine or rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp (10 g) sesame oil
  • 1 tsp (3 g) red pepper flakes
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  • This is a low effort meal prep perfect for a week when you want to take it easy in the kitchen but still have food ready. It uses frozen vegetables to save time, you can obviously use fresh if you wish. Replace them with an equal weight of whatever you desire.

For the Rice

  • Prepare enough rice to yield cups (563g) of cooked rice. 1 cup of dry rice will make between 2-3 cups of dry rice depending on what kind you use. I used 240g of calrose rice.

For the Sauce

  • You can prepare the sauce while cooking the turkey to save time. Add ¼ cup (56g) of peanut butter and ¼ cup (84g) honey to a bowl and microwave it for a few seconds to make it easier to stir. NOTE: If you use a peanut butter that already has sugar in it, you may want to use 1 tbsp less of honey. The peanut butter I use is made of just peanuts and salt.
  • Then add in the soy sauce, cooking wine, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes. Stir to incorporate.

For the Stir Fry

  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add in 1 tbsp of oil. Add in your turkey and brown on both sides to cook.
  • While the turkey is cooking, add lbs of the frozen stir fry vegetables to a large microwave safe bowl and thaw in the microwave. Frozen vegetables tend to hold a lot of excess water so thawing them out will help to draw this out before adding to the stir fry.
  • Once the vegetables are heated through, drain away all of the water in the bottom of the bowl.
  • When the turkey is about 90% of the way cooked, it is time to add in the vegetables. If there is water remaining in the bottom of the skillet from cooking the turkey, you will want to spoon it out or boil it off.
  • Next, you can dump in the vegetables and stir fry with the turkey to finish the cooking process. Cook for 1-2 minutes then pour in your sauce and stir to incorporate.
  • Once the sauce thickens up, the stir fry is finished.

Plating

  • This recipe makes 5 servings. Each dish gets ¾ cup (112g) of cooked rice and the stir fry can be divided evenly 5 ways. This meal will last for up to 5 days in the fridge.

    Hey Josh, made this today and it’s great! I think the recipe is missing a few steps in the sauce section though.

      Whoops, I must have deleted that line on accident. Thanks for the note

    Excellent.,. Of course I added a boat load of lightly salted peanuts!
    And BTW, this business about not having a big enough pan that’s clean seems to be contagious.

    Substituted the turkey for 3lbs of thinly sliced chicken thighs, doubled the sauce, and went easy on the rice.

    Outstanding.
