Omit almonds and use a sprinkle of sesame seeds instead, if desired.
To toast almonds, place sliced almonds in small dry skillet and toast over medium heat, stirring constantly, for about 3 minutes or until golden and fragrant. Transfer to a bowl immediately and let cool.
If you have fresh veggies you want to use for this stir-fry, a great combination would be broccoli, green beans, sweet red pepper and sugar snap peas. You will need 6 cups (1.5 L) chopped or pieces; cook until barely tender-crisp before adding the beef.
