Lean back in your chair. Gaze into the dance of the campfire. Listen to the crackling. Let the smoky aroma fill your nostrils. When you get hungry, place a packet of Fireside Stir Fry over the open flame and let the crispy yet tender green beans and the rosy, juicy steak cook to perfection in a sweet, tangy marinade. Even if you don’t have a campfire at the ready, this summertime meal can be made on the grill with the same delicious results (just less nature-filled ambiance); Fireside Stir Fry is a delightful dish for one that proves that cooking just for yourself can be just as adventurous and exciting as cooking for a whole party!
