Saute garlic and onions.

Add ground beef and cook until brown.

Add salt and pepper.

When ground beef is cooked, add frozen veggies – then add oyster sauce. That’s it!

You can cook this is advance and freeze it when it has cooled.

We like making fried rice or pizza with this recipe. The possibilities are endless.

I love using a chopper to chop my garlic and onions and to make it so much easier for me.
