Let me start by saying: Don’t let the name of this dish fool you.

It may be called “Beer and 5 veggie stir fry,” but it does not taste like warm beer. You just use a little beer to make it.

I use chicken as my base for this healthy, tasty version of stir fry, but you can sub in a different meat or even tofu, if you want to make it vegetarian.
