Stir Fry or Stew? Asian or Indian? Low Fat Low Sugar

I gave a cooking class yesterday, July 26. Everyone did their version of stir fry (or stew ?) using ground meat plus different spices. Here's the ingredients of the dish I did with the ingredients I saw on the table after everyone did their own version of stir fry/stew.


2 T ground 'grass-fed'  beef
3 T ground 'pastured' pork
1 cup water
1/2 T roasted garlic chopped
1 T ginger chopped finely
1/4 c mixed nuts
1/4 cup onion sliced
2 tsp Garam Masala
1/4 cup white mushrooms sliced
1 tsp anchovy paste (or 3 anchovies)
1 cup broccoli sliced
1/4 cup red bell pepper
3 asparagus spears sliced
few drops of sesame oil

* Since I used anchovies and the mixed nuts are salted, add salt only when needed.
*Add a sweetener of your choice when needed


Heat the wok under medium to high heat
Put the water in the wok
Add the meat  and the mixed nuts 
Boil until meat is cooked
Add all the ingredients
Option 1 Indian: Put the Garam Masala, Add 3 kari leaves (from Indian shop) and/or 1/4 tsp. fenugreek seeds
Option 2 Asian : Do not put the Garam masala, Add 1/4 tsp 5 spice powder, fresh chopped garlic instead of roasted garlic.
Mix until all vegetables are cooked
Serve warm
