Asian Beef Vegetable Stir-Fry

My aunt lived in the town where I went to college, and for my birthday, I could request any meal, and she would prepare it for my friends and me. This recipe of hers remains one of my favorites.

    Very tasty. I was out of celery and used celery seed instead. Still had the celery flavor somewhat. Tried this with fresh swiss chard and was just as good as with the spinach. Will try it with Bok Choi next time.

    It was tasty! A little too runny but just add it to more rice. YUMMY!
