Veal fillets are a common ingredient in the kitchens of many families. It is a healthy dish if cooked on the grill, although it can end up being somewhat boring.
When I get tired of grilling meat, I take out the wok and the vegetables I have in the pantry to cook an Asian-inspired sauté, like this recipe for veal wok and peppers with rice noodles.
It is not necessary to have a wok to prepare a recipe like this, a good frying pan also allows us to make healthy sautées. For dishes of this type I like to use sunflower oil because it has a neutral taste, but you can use olive oil without any problem.
What I like most about cooking sautéed in the wok is to leave the vegetables al dente, in this case the peppers, with a delicious crunchy spot.
