From Eatingwithhim blog – My Big Fat Beef Stir-Fry

September 15, 2014


I was really craving something hearty this evening, but was also feeling a little lazy. Stir-frys are perfect for this as hey are quick to make and always delicious. Beef was the best looking cut of meat in my limited local grocer, and it was conveniently already cut into strips.

Delicious over hot steaming Japanese Rice

Cal: 235 | Carb: 10 | Fat: 11 | Pro: 26 | Sugar: 2 | Fibre: 1

Ratio: 6:2

500g Frying steak cut into thin strips.

2 tbsp Cornflour

3 tbsp Sesame Oil

1/2 Red Onion in Slices

1/2 Red Pepper in Slices

Handful of Sugar Snap Peas or Mangetout

2 cloves Garlic roughly chopped

pinch of chill flakes

2 Spring onion, green bit only roughly chopped

1 tbsp dark soy sauce

2 tbsp brown sugar or honey

Coat the steal evenly in the cornflour. This keeps the beef tender when frying and also makes the sauce stick to the surface of the meat.

Heat 2 tbsp Sesame Oil in a large wok, frying pan or skillet and add the beef. Toss this in the skillet until the meat is just brown, and then tip the beef out into a plate to use later. Be careful not to over cook this.

Next add the remaining sesame oil in the pan with the onion and red pepper strips. If you want the stir fry to be spicy add the chilli now. Once the onion has softened add the garlic, sugar snap peas and mange tout.

Immediately add the soy sauce and the brown sugar/honey, give the contents a quick toss and then add the beef back into the pan.

Once the beef is all coated and mixed into the vegetables take off the heat and put the pan on the table to serve directly onto plates. Spinkle the spring onion over the top.

If you like an additional kick, squeeze some lime juice over the top to add acidity and brighten the flavour

This dish is even more delicious served with a cup of hot white Japanese rice, but I forgot to make some before I started, and I was too hungry to wait!
