One of the meals that we enjoy cooking and eating is Stir-Fry. It’s a quick and easy meal to throw together, especially if you have the meat pre-cut. After grocery shopping, I often cut the meat, put it in a freezer bag and add soy sauce. Then stick it in the freezer and it’s ready to cook. I usually cook Chicken Stir-Fry, but I recently received some Holland House wines for cooking  and decided to give the Broccoli Beef Stir-Fry a try.

I have never cooked with wine before and found the taste to be really rich and good. The boys even went back for seconds.
