Greek Stir Fry Recipe

Greek Stir Fry Recipe

Many of my recipes are simple stir fry type recipes because these are the ones I most often cook myself! From a convenience perspective, I certainly understand why many people choose fast food or processed food options… they save time (and sometimes money too).

That being said, with a little ingenuity, it is possible to make healthy options that are also fast and simple to prepare. I’ve found that by changing the spices used, it is easy to make a simple ground beef recipe taste delicious and add variety to a basic meal.

This simple stir fry is one of our favorites, and it is somewhat inspired by my Greek Meatloaf Recipe, which is one of my all time favorite recipes…

  1. Wow, this looks awesome! I tried a greek inspired stew last night, but it just was too watery. Have to try this.

  2. Hi– are the fennel greens the stalk part or the fronds? Sorry I’m not too familiar with cooking with fennel but this recipe sounds great

  3. I really appreciate blogs like this that gives simple healthy recipes. I really want my mom to eat healthy stuff that is why i keep searching and trying recipes that looks easy, good and really healthy. Thanks for this one, ill give it a try asap! 🙂

  4. Super tasty! I upped the herbs a bit and added a sprinkling of cinnamon, delish!

  5. This was delicious! I had to add an extra can of tomatoes bc it was way too dry and didn’t think that chicken stock would help as much. Just saw the comment about adding cinnamon and that’s a great idea for next time!

  6. Love this dish!!!! Great flavor, and love how versatile it is. We had elk meat so used that instead of beef, and crushed tomatoes instead of diced. We served it over rice. Will be adding this to our regular rotation. Thanks for the recipe!!

  7. Looks awesome! How many calories is this?
