Apr 16: Supermarket Sushi; Beef Stir-Fry with Bell Peppers, Carrots and Bok Choy


A mid-morning trip to Whole Foods provided an opportunity to pick up some spicy tuna rolls, and a black rice avocado and cucumber roll.

In total, the sushi was $17.98 or $8.99 per serve.


Tonight we tried a Beef Stir-Fry recipe from Whole Foods (pure co-incidence) that we used sliced top sirloin for the meat, and augmented it with carrots and the remaining box choy.

  • The top sirloin was $4.05 per serve
  • The bok choy was $1.10 and we used half, or 55c per serve
  • Carrots were $1.99 but we only used half, or 50c per serve
  • The bell pepper was $1.49 or 75c per serve
  • Add 30c for seasoning.

This recipe was terribly bland. It is not a stir fry recipe at all, given that the meat stews in the liquid and the vegetables effectively steam. We added a little fish sauce after serving to bring some flavor to the dish. Disappointing for $6.15 per serve.
