Quick and easy is all I know how to do and its stir fry just about any meat and veggie combo – takes about 15 minutes.  This is my weekday cooking since I dont get home until 8 most days and am starving by then and have no patience to wait more than 20 minutes for food.  Some of my favorites:

Beef and tomato – slice flank or sirion tips, cube tomatos, and onion if you like onion, toss them in a pan with a little oil.  Top with some oyster sauce – just cook, stirring occasionally.  It’ll end up juicy, just crack an egg in it and stir.  Done.

Curry beef and veggie – slice beef, cut veggies toss in pot.  Add a little curry powder, sugar, oyster sauce, cook and done – 10 mintes

Black bean sauce or chili sauce with some meat or veggie — same thing.

Hopefully its not too bland for your taste, but, at least its pretty healthy too.  No creams and butters or too much soduim.

I love the crockpot too.  I usually do that on Sunday and pack left overs for lunch.

@bunting: Oh no! That’s where I get all of my “unusual” ingredients. If you can find an Asian market near you, they should carry it. Otherwise… Amazon to the rescue? ๐Ÿ™‚

Crockpots are the best BUT for an alternative, and I’m cooking it now: chicken covered with cream of mushroom/cream of chicken soup mixed with a bit of milk and a 1/2 packet of french onion soup mix. Bake at 350 for 1 hr and serve over rice. YUM and the oven just beeped ๐Ÿ™‚

@bunting: Not sure if this is what you’re talking about, but I saw peanut oil at our chain grocery store like where the vegetable oil is the other day! ๐Ÿ™‚
