Stir Fry Celery and Beef

Stir Fry Beef and Celery

Many people always ask me how I make dinner for a family of 6 and not break the bank. I always try to shop based on what is in season and what is on sale. Yesterday, my supermarket had celery on sale for $.99 and 2lb. of beef for $10. My mom actually use to make this simple dish. Its a simple beef and celery stir fry but so good. (I added extra garlic to it but it’s so flexible you can add ginger or chili flakes, be creative!) Traditionally we served it with white rice but you can serve it with steamed quinoa or brown rice. I buy my rice and quinoa in bulk, since its a commonly served item in my house.  At the end, I spent under $15 for dinner for my family of 6! Economical and gluten free, what more can you ask for? 😀
