Round Steak Stir Fry Recipe

I don't normally do this, recipe posts that is.  But we have a whole beef in our freezer, well we've had beef since about December.  It's a small one so equivalent to half a beef.  Anyway, we've gone through a lot of cuts that we know what to do with... especially the steak, ribs, etc.  But I have all this round steak.  I knew it wasn't exactly steak, but I wasn't sure what to do.  My parents suggested using it for stir fry and my friend Holly suggested slow cooking it, shredding it and adding 'primal ketchup'.  Well we tried the stir fry tonight, and then the slow cooking is for tomorrow.

1lb of round steak, Grilled then sliced

1 package of frozen organic broccoli
1/2 package of frozen organic green beans
2 teaspoons of orange zest, or about half a zested orange (I didn't measure)
2 small oranges peeled and sliced
half a purple onion sliced
2 teaspoons or so of fresh grated ginger
1 heaping teaspoon of crushed garlic
some pepper to taste
olive oil

I just poured the olive oil in the pan and when it got hot I added the onion and garlic.  Once the started to get tender I poured in the frozen veggies.  Then the oranges, zest, ginger, pepper and grilled steak slices.  Then basically you just stir until it's all defrosted and hot.  It was really good.  I'm sure I'll make this again.

Oh, and I added Sriracha to mine of course :)

Did you save the onion skins for egg dyeing???

That sounds pretty easy. I never know what to do with frozen vegetables.
