Chilli & Ginger Beef Stir fry


Food prep, eating six meals a day and trying to fill your macros isn’t cheap! If you’re like me most of your money goes on food!
You get into a certain routine with eating. It can be cheaper & more convenient to prep with frozen bulk meat – because food is just fuel right?
But I recently got sent some meat from leanmeatldn and OH MY the quality of meat was so good and lean i couldn’t wait to get cooking with it. Also you can’t beat meat that is sourced within your own country. 👊
Spicy Thai food is my absolute favourite, anything with chillies really. The extra lean beef chunks from leanmeatldn inspired me to create a chilli & ginger beef stir fry.

Recipe below guys hope you enjoy
