Beef Stir-Fry with Peaches

Beef Stir-Fry with Peaches

This dish is satisfyingly balanced when it comes to savoury and sweet flavours, as well as crunchy and juicy textures. My favourite part? This dish is popping with colour, which makes my food-styling heart sing with joy. It’s the little things, isn’t it? Next time you walk into your house at a time that’s far too late to start organising a five-star gourmet feast, think of me and, of course, our beloved stir-fry.
