Thanks to the Ohio Beef Council for sponsoring this post!
One of my boys eats his veggies first, the other one eats his veggies last (if at all). Except for stir fries. Stir fries have magical powers, especially when tossed in peanut sauce. At least they do in my house.
So this one is for my veggies-last boy. We recently found out that his iron levels are slightly low, so I’ve been focusing on iron-rich foods for him. A three-ounce serving of beef has the same amount of iron as eight ounces of chicken! So it packs a lot of iron in a small amount. Adding beef into meals also helps your body soak up the iron in any plant foods you’re eating with it. Plus, beef is rich in protein and a great source of essential nutrients like zinc and B vitamins.
I used skirt steak in this Beef Stir Fry, but you could use flank steak as well. Both slice into thin strips that cook up quickly and work well in a stir fry. When shopping for beef, I usually opt for organic or grass-fed when I can find it–or I buy from a local farmer here in Central Ohio. The Ohio Beef Council represents the 17,000 beef farming families in Ohio, including both conventional and organic.
