quick and easy tomato beef stir fry

shell loves asian food.. she could probably eat it every day.. she looooooooooves plain steamed white rice.. when she isn't feeling well it's a pretty good guess she is going to ask for white rice.. her favorite is jasmine rice.. now jake not so much... he doesn't like asian food at all :/ not sure how that happened.. so the other night it was just shell and i.. pete was away for work and she asked for "stir fry" i told her she would have to go to the store and get a few items and she then said never mind i don't want stir fry ha ha but i decided i would see what i had to make it and this is what i came up with... it was really good.. we both enjoyed it!! the recipe was inspired by here.. with a few minor tweaks..
