Black Pepper Steak Stir Fry– Most people wouldn’t consider steak and stir fry to be a healthy meal but with the right balance of ingredients, you can maximum flavor while maintaining a small waistline. I love using lean cuts of beef flank, filet of sirloin are always reliable and cooks fast, which is great for a post-work or post work out meal.
