2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and steam the vegetables

  • Cut away any core from the cabbage; cut the cabbage into 2-inch pieces.
  • Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Scrub or peel the carrot and trim the ends; cut the carrot on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp]. 

In a large sauce pot, bring 1 inch of water to a simmer. Add the cabbage, zucchini, carrot, and garlic, season lightly with salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Cover and cook until the vegetables are tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain the vegetables, then return to the pot and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and keep warm. While the vegetables are steaming, prepare the stir-fry.


Prep and cook your protein

  • Steak strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Chicken breast or pork loin chops: Pat the meat dry with a paper towel; cut into 1-inch strips. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Shrimp or scallops: Rinse and drain the shrimp or scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes for regular shrimp; 4 to 6 minutes for jumbo shrimp, scallops, steak, or pork; and 6 to 8 minutes for chicken. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. Meanwhile, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the stir-fry

  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; cut the scallions on the diagonal into 2-inch pieces.
  • Peel the ginger and cut into matchsticks.

In the same pan used for your protein, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the scallions and ginger and cook until fragrant and starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the stir-fry blend and cook until thickened slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in your protein and any accumulated juices, toss to coat, and cook until heated through, about 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Transfer the steamed vegetables to individual bowls, top with the stir-fry, and serve.
