Stir-Fried Beef and Vegetables

Author: Canadian Living

Added flavour comes from tamari soy sauce (available in health food stores), which has a more pleasant taste than most soy sauces; substitute Japanese soy sauce if tamari is unavailable. Oyster mushrooms enrich the stir-fry, too, but regular mushrooms can be used. If you like more heat, add 1/4 tsp (1 mL) hot pepper flakes.
