Beef Courgettes and Capsicum Stir Fry

Beef, Courgettes and Capsicum Stir Fry

Another free style stir fry dish from yours truly, I can’t think of what to serve today but we have the proper ingredients left on our fridge to have a tasty dish!  Beef, courgettes, dried mushrooms and yellow capsicums.  It’s a good mix of flavours from the earthy mushroom to the sweet capsicums; it also has a good mix of colours and textures.  Now to give this dish another dimension to its flavour we will be using soy sauce and Chinese wine.  A really easy dish to prepare but flavourful enough that will leave you asking for more, Try it out and enjoy!
