Oriental Stir Fry - our newest favorite Aldi product

I like to watch YouTube videos while I am doing home things.  One homemaker I like cooked this Aldi Oriental Stir fry.  Hers looked very good so I bought some on my next trip to Aldi.
It comes in a 32 ounce bag in the freezer section and sells for $2.89 here.  There is also a teriyaki with noodles version but we have not tried that kind. 
The bag contains lots of nice vegetables and a packet of a thickened soy and slightly ginger sauce. 
The ingredient label is not scary either. 
It is very quick to prepare. Just heat 1 tablespoon of oil and then stir in the frozen vegetables, cooked covered for 5 minutes, stirring a few times.
Then add the sauce packet and heat through. 
We had it last night with rice and some chicken my husband smoked.  
That is his plate below.  
The sauce tastes like a good sauce from a good Asian restaurant and we enjoy it very much. 
This is a product I will be keeping in our freezer, especially for busy meal times.

I've cooked it twice and both times have cooked it plain just as the bag describes. 
The YouTube homemaker added frozen scallops and shrimp to hers and I think she also got her seafood at Aldi.  
I may sauté an onion next time to add to ours next time I cook it.

  4. We adore Aldi in our household. I'm not sure we have an equivalent product to this one, but I'll check next time. We too, love the lack of scary ingredients. A great initiative on their part! Looks scrumptious Rhonda!

  7. Yum! what a great go-to meal. BTW, we always when to Aldis here but it's called Hoffer in Austria and we were amazed when we went home one year and seen it in Texas. The names are different but the signs and store are the same.

  8. That looks yummy! We love Aldi--so many great deals and I really like the line of organics they carry now.

  9. This looks good, but I would have to make my own sauce due to the sodium content. It is a good price just for the veggies alone.

  10. Good to know it was tasty! I don't always like everything from Aldi's but I've had good experiences with all of their frozen foods (especially the desserts).
