Kielbasa Stir Fry and Quinoa Pilaf

This is catchup. On June 20, I pretty much re-made my Chicken Stir Fry and Quinoa Pilaf using beef kielbasa instead of chicken. Not quite as healthy, but delicious. Kielbasa is definitely in my top ten extruded foods.


Ingredients:
  • Stir Fry
    • beef kielbasa
    • onion
    • yellow pepper
    • garlic
    • black pepper
    • red pepper
    • ground ginger
    • paprika
    • oregano
    • olive oil
    • Dale's
    • soy sauce
    • kosher salt
    • blackberry honey
  • Pilaf
    • white quinoa
    • peas
    • carrots
    • garlic
    • kosher salt
    • black pepper
    • oregano
    • olive oil
For the pilaf, I added some frozen peas and carrots and the seasonings to some quinoa and cooked it with a little more water than you usually would. Turned out great and went perfectly with the stir fry. I used more peas and carrots and seasoning this time and it was fantastic.

For the stir fry, I cut up all of the ingredients and cooked them in olive oil until the onions and peppers were carmalized, and the kielbasa was browned thoroughly. I added the Dale's, honey, and soy sauce near the end. On a side note, Dale's is one of the very few pre-made sauces or seasoning mixes I use.

This turned out great. The pilaf was a big step above last time, with more vegetables and seasoning. It was a hair underdone, but the leftovers were perfect after re-heating. The stir fry was incredible, but it is pretty much impossible to screw up something involving kielbasa. I only wish I hadn't been out of celery. That really would have brought things together.
