I have a confession. I’m the type of person that tears out tasty-looking recipes from magazines, and then I put them in a cookbook so I can make them in the future. Unfortunately, I often forget to make them. That’s what happened with this easy Beef Stir Fry recipe.
The good news is that I was flipping through my cookbooks a few weeks ago, and I found the page that I stashed in the cookbook. I made the recipe and it’s really good!
This Beef Stir Fry has become one of my go-to weeknight meals. It’s a one-skillet-sensation that takes less than 30 minutes to make. Plus, you can adjust the vegetable or beef cut based on what you have available in your kitchen.
Beef Stir Fry
- 1 to p sirloin steak thinly sliced (approx. 1 ½ lbs)
- ½ cup reduced sodium soy sauce
- ½ cup water
- 2 Tbsp cornstarch
- 2 tsp sugar
- 2 Tbsp canola oil divided
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 1 medium onion cut into thin slices
- 8 oz vegetables. We like fresh green beans asparagus, snow peas, or a frozen medley of Green Beans, Wax Beans & Carrots
- Hot cooked rice
- In a small bowl, mix the soy sauce, water, cornstarch and sugar. Place ¼ cup mixture in a large bowl and set aside the small bowl.
- In the large bowl with the ¼ cup mixture, add 1 Tbsp oil and garlic. Add beef, mix to coat, and let beef sit in mixture for 15 minutes.
- Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add half the beef mixture. Stir-fry and cook beef for 1-2 minutes until it’s no longer pink. Remove from pan. Add remaining beef to skillet, cook for 1-2 minutes and remove from skillet.
- Then, heat remaining oil in the skillet on medium-high heat. Add onions and cook until tender. Add vegetables of choice and cook until tender.
- Add remaining soy sauce mixture to skillet and stir. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir 1-2 minutes until sauce is thickened. Return beef to pan, heat thoroughly and serve with rice.
