It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is SPRING VEGETABLE STIR-FRY !

I love this recipe because it’s refreshing and easy to make in minutes. Add some chunks of chicken or shrimp, or even strips of beef, and it becomes a one-pot supper. (Although it will take a bit longer to cook the meat.) Even meatless, served on a bed of rice or pasta, and you’re sitting down to a filling meal in no time.

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

(Serves 6) 

2 T. butter
1/2 lb. baby carrots
1/2 lb. sugar snap peas
1 lb. asparagus, trimmed, cut diagonally into 2″ pieces
1 T. minced fresh tarragon
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup white wine
1/4 tsp. Salt 

In large skillet or wok, melt butter over med-high heat. Add carrots; cook, stirring frequently, until just starting to soften, 8-10 minutes. Add asparagus and sugar snap peas, cook 2 minutes. Add wine, tarragon, salt and pepper. Cover, reduce heat to low. Simmer until tender, about 2 minutes. 

Note: To add strips of chicken or beef or shrimp, simmer until just cooked. Shrimp should cook well in the original 2 minutes. Chicken and beef, it may take 1-2 minutes more depending on the size of the strips.

If desired, serve over rice. You can also mix with cooked pasta with melted butter, chopped green onions, parsley, tarragon, salt and pepper to taste. 

Happy Eating!
