Sesame-Ginger Beef Stir-Fry

If classic beef and broccoli is what you're in the mood for, this recipe is for you! Take this dish to the next level by stirring in red peppers, onions, and plenty of zesty spices.

Gingered Vegetable-Tofu Stir-Fry

Of course this stir-fry is seasoned with plenty of fresh ginger, but we also used soy sauce, dry sherry, and even a pinch of sugar! A full pound of fresh asparagus, plus tofu and summer squash, makes this vegetarian entree hearty enough to satisfy even the meat-eaters at your table.

Cajun Shrimp and Sausage Stir-Fry

When we think of stir-fry, we don't usually picture okra or Cajun seasoning in the mix, but that's exactly what makes this dish uniquely delicious. Spicy shrimp and sausage help turn this stir-fry into a meal straight from the bayou.

Pineapple-Chicken Meatball Stir-Fry

One of the speediest stir-fry recipes of them all, this dish goes from ingredients in your fridge to a meal on your table in just 15 minutes. A double dose of pineapple lends this nontraditional dish a taste of tropical flavor.

Tofu Stir-Fry with Soba Noodles

Making a vegetarian dinner is no excuse to skip out on protein. Luckily, thanks to tofu stir-fried with ginger and teriyaki sauce, this veggie dish still packs over 20 grams of protein into each serving.

Greek Leeks and Shrimp Stir-Fry

What makes this stir-fry Greek? Couscous, fresh leeks, and a handful of crumbly feta cheese. But what really makes this dish stand out from the stir-fry crowd is the zesty lemon and oregano sauce.

Stout, Beef, and Cabbage Stir-Fry

Extra-stout beer may not make for a typical stir-fry sauce, but this beef dish thinks way outside the box. Serve over rice for a slightly more traditional stir-fry dinner, or sub in mashed potatoes to make a hearty meat-and-potatoes meal.

Snappy Chicken Stir-Fry

We don't call this recipe snappy for nothing. This simple chicken and rice dish can be on your plate in just 20 minutes. And unlike some stir-fry recipes, there's no long list of ingredients to gather—seven is all you need.

Pork and Broccoli Noodle Stir-Fry

It's not quite beef and broccoli, but this pork and veggies dish will be just as popular at your dinner table. Using broccoli and carrot ribbons for noodles alongside pork helps keep this meal low in carbs and high in protein.

Chard, Beet, and Mushroom Stir-Fry

Instead of rice or noodles, this ginger- and garlic-flavor stir-fry is served over creamy polenta. And if you want to make this veggie-filled dish completely vegetarian, just substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth.

Spanish Shrimp Stir-Fry

You won't find soy sauce in this Spanish-inspired stir-fry, but you will find zesty salsa coating shrimp, fingerling potatoes, and black olives. Serve over rice for a paella-meets-stir-fry meal.

Pork Stir-Fry with Pumpkin Pasta Sauce

If you can't get enough pumpkin from your pie and lattes, then the thick pumpkin sauce topping the noodles and pork in this recipe must be calling your name. But pumpkin isn't the only taste here—fresh sage leaves and a drizzle of soy sauce give this autumn-ready stir-fry a major flavor boost.

Mediterranean Chicken-Pomegranate Stir-Fry

Your stir-fry dinner goes Mediterranean when you add the spice trio of cumin, coriander, and paprika. To give this chicken stir-fry even more flair, we mixed in a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds with the carrots and onions.

Brussels Sprouts and Noodle Stir-Fry with Cilantro and Almonds

Plain spaghetti is getting a huge upgrade, thanks to this stir-fry. We mixed whole wheat noodles with Brussels sprouts, ginger, and red pepper to make a fresh and veggie-filled 30-minute dinner. Trust us—you won't miss the meat.

Vegetarian Stir-Fried Rice

Yep, that's right—we combined two of our all-time favorite dishes into one epic stir-fried rice dinner. Instead of serving over rice at the end, the rice is stir-fried with the veggies and soy sauce for a two-in-one Asian-inspired meal.

Pear and Pork Stir-Fry

Unlike most stir-fry recipes, this dish brings a helping of fruit and veggies to your plate. Pear slices and chopped radicchio are glazed in soy sauce, honey, and crushed red pepper in this speedy 30-minute meal.

Jamaican Pork Stir-Fry

Dinner in 20 minutes with just six ingredients? Count us in! Even better than the speediness of this recipe is the Jamaican jerk seasoning and plum sauce that gives this pork and veggie stir-fry its bold and powerful flavors.

Mango-Chili Chicken Stir-Fry

Take your taste buds on a tropical vacation when you serve chicken stir-fried with mango chutney, fresh ginger, and chili garlic sauce. Serving with fresh mango on top also brings island vibes to this 25-minute dinner recipe.

Spicy Stir-Fried Turkey and Greens

You won't miss out on a healthy serving of veggies when you serve this supper. It has a full six cups of spinach, plus sweet peppers and onions, stir-fried alongside turkey. A few spoonfuls of curry powder lend this dish plenty of spice, while fresh ginger adds classic stir-fry flavor.
