Weekday dinner: broccoli, zucchini, and beef stir fry

While organizing my kitchen on Tuesday evening, I found an unopened jar of satay sauce.  Deciding to use some, I defrosted and sliced up a piece of beef (unfortunately I didn't buy it, so have no idea what its cut was) and marinated it for about 20 minutes in a two-to-one mixture of satay sauce and water.  The beef was then sauteed, followed by some broccoli and zucchini (with warmed, minced garlic), and then everything was combined and served over jasmine rice. 

The result tasted good, since I liked the satay sauce's peanut flavor.  But perhaps due to an excess amount or duration of marinade, the sauce flavor definitely overpowered the beef; I'll keep that in mind for next time.
