My mom is diabetic, and I ran across this recipe when I was leafing through her cookbook one day.  I tried it, and fell in love with it!  My husband and young son enjoy it as well!  We make a double batch of it, adding in chicken breast, to ensure there is plenty of leftovers to eat on for a couple of days!

Mr. Food’s Singapore Stir Fry

This Singapore Stir-Fry recipe was developed for my original Diabetes recipes, but it’s so tasty, everyone will enjoy it!

  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the steak strips and brown for 5 to 6 minutes per side.
