Dinner on the Fly

What do you get when you have a freezer full of meat, a fridge full of veggies, and a pantry full of grains?  A random smorgasbord dinner :)  The meal was a complete experiment, but I think it worked out well!

What are your favorite concoctions for dinner on the fly?

Beef with Veggies and Grits

1 Tbs olive oil
1 pound beef stew meat
1 cup vegetable broth
1 bundle green onions/scallions, chopped
4 radishes, sliced
1 sweet potato, peeled and sliced
3-4 summer squash and zucchini, peeled and sliced
1 Tbs garlic salt
2-3 Tbs McCormick's Smokehouse Maple seasoning  (or flavor-crack as we refer to it)
1 Tbs lemon juice
1/4 cup parmesan cheese

In wok type pan (or size), heat oil.  Brown stew meat.  Generously add garlic salt and flavor crack :).  Add vegetable broth and continue to cook beef (stew meat always gets dry for me, so the broth helped to keep it moist).  Add veggies and generously add garlic salt and smokehouse maple seasoning.  Cook, covered.

Meanwhile, cook grits according to package instructions.  At the end, add lemon juice and cheese.

Serve beef and veggies over/next to grits.  When adding beef and veggies, use a slotted spoon or else there will be too much broth on the plate.

10 points a serving, serves 3-4.
