I usually do some variation of this. Add these ingredients into a large frying pan in the order listed:
1 T Ghee (or Olive/Coconut Oil)
2 Onions, chopped
1 bulb Garlic, peeled and chopped
1 T ginger, grated
1 t basil
1 t oregano
1 t tumeric
1 t cumin
1/2 t coriander
1/4 t chilli powder (vary depending on how hot you like it)
-- stir for 2 min --
2 carrots, chopped
-- stir occasionally for 5 min, until the onions are nearly cooked --
1 lb beef mince
-- stir for 2 min --
2 Capsicums, chopped
6 large mushrooms, chopped
1 broccoli, chopped
2 T fish sauce
-- stir 5 mins --
1 440g tin of Coconut Cream
-- cover and simmer for 15-20 mins --
I don't really have recipes for this as they are usually born out of portions of meat that are too small to serve on their own or veggies (especially mushrooms) that are starting to wilt. A couple or a few meats, a couple or a few veggies (I really like onions in stir fries), some five spice, garlic or garlic powder, coconut aminos, maybe some curry powder. Fast "fried" in whatever oil or fat I'm in the mood to use. Break an egg in the center, let it set a little, then stir it in with everything else.

I do stir fry ALOT in the summer... usually use chicken as the meat, sometimes pork, (as I did today), veggies are varied, but usually include onion, garlic, peppers (usually red and green bell). Other veggies depend on availability such as bok choy, yellow squash, zucchini, carrots. Spices are also varied. Sometimes I use salt, pepper, garlic, cumin, tumeric others I just use tamari sauce...
Do what tastes good to you. It's a culinary adventure......
My usual stir frys include beef, buffalo, or lamb for the meat. Scrambled eggs. Spinach, carrots, green beans and sugar pea pods for the vegetables. Seasoned with garlic salt, rosemary, oregano, and thyme. Fried in olive oil, tallow, or ghee.
My advice is to not over think it and go crazy with ingredients. I was guilty of this for years. I used to do this with my stir fries adding all kinds of spices and sauces, chicken broth, corn starch, etc. Lately all I use is coconut oil (at the begginning), and finish with sesame oil and tamari. Let the vegetables speak for themselves, for they are delicious (especially in the summer!). If you are cooking something like broccoli and desire it to be more cooked than raw, try adding a little water to the wok here and there so that the veggies steam a little.
