Gluten-Free Ponzu Stir Fry Bowls

Flank steak is an excellent cut of meat to use for marinades. It’s often used for fajitas, London broils, and stir fry recipes. In my opinion, flank steak works best in a stir fry if you marinate it first, like I did in these Ponzu Stir Fry Bowls. This is because the cooking process is so quick in a stir fry, so the marinating process beforehand lets the meat get more tender before it hits the sizzling pan.

For the marinade, I used Marukan’s ponzu soy dressing, which is a delicious gluten-free soy sauce with the added pop of citrus. Simple as that! The rest of the ingredients get added to the stir fry itself. If you happen to have another vegetable on hand that you want to swap with the broccoli, such as carrots, cabbage, bok choy, or snap peas, you can certainly do that – or add them in addition to the broccoli. Be sure, if you’re going to add something like carrots, that you blanch them first or cut them small enough so that they cook properly within the stir fry.

What are your favorite veggies to use in stir fry?
