This is one of my go-to dinner recipes! I adapted this version from a Food Network recipe by Jet Tila to make use of the ingredients I usually have on hand, plus some more veggies (because who actually eats enough veggies?). This recipe is delicious with a variety of cuts - be sure to check out our Pasture Raised Beef and order some if you haven't already! I also recommend using a wok for this recipe since it makes a ton of food and it's harder to stir in a skillet. I use the Calphalon Elite Nonstick Wok by Williams Sonoma and the Littledeer Wok Paddle for this recipe. I recommend brown rice with this stir fry, or try it with no rice for a lower carb meal option.
approximately 1.5 pounds tender beef (such as skirt steak, sirloin, or flank steak)
1 pound broccoli florets
2 red bell peppers
6 ounces snow peas
For the Marinade
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cloves minced garlic
For the Sauce
1/3 cup beer (or stock)
1/4 cup oyster sauce
1 teaspoon cornstarch
For the Pan
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Prepare all the "For Slicing" ingredients:
Combine all the "For the Marinade" ingredients in a large bowl and whisk until well combined. Add the sliced beef to the marinade and stir until coated. Allow the beef to marinate for 20 minutes.
Combine all the "For the Sauce" ingredients in a small bowl and stir until well combined.
Heat the wok or large skillet and the "For the Pan" oil on the stovetop over high heat until a white wisp of smoke appears. This is how you know your pan is hot enough to start cooking!
Once the wisp appears add the marinated beef to the pan and cook for one minute, stirring constantly. The beef should be browned on the outside but not cooked through after one minute.
Add the broccoli and the peppers to the pan and cook for one minute, stirring continuously.
Add the sauce and the snow peas to the pan and stir for another minute until the sauce starts to glaze and thicken.
Serve hot and enjoy!
