This ginger beef stir fry recipe is another of our easy dinner recipes.

It features an easy marinade and lots of tasty, healthy vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds flank steak, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 6 green onions, sliced in half, then sliced lengthwise (or 1 small onion, chopped)
  • 1 large or 2 small carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1 green or red pepper, cut into julienne strips
  • 1 cup snow peas, whole or sliced
  • 1" piece of fresh ginger, slivered or 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 5 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sherry or Chinese cooking wine
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Method

Step 1

Combine the marinade ingredients (soy sauce, sherry, sugar and cornstarch) and mix well. Pour the marinade over the meat and marinate for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Heat the oil in a skillet or wok. Add the ginger to the pan (sprinkle ginger in the pan if using ground ginger). Add the meat and stir fry about 5 minutes, stirring often.

Step 3

Remove the meat mixture and it set aside. Add the carrots to the pan and stir fry over high heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the other vegetables and stir fry for another 2-3 minutes. Add the meat back and heat it all through.

Step 4

Great served over Chinese egg noodles or rice.

Tips and Variations:

  • Up the vegetable content. Add frozen peas, broccoli, chopped tomatoes, chopped onions, celery or sliced mushrooms.
  • Omit the sugar for a healthier sugar free or diabetic recipe. It will still taste good.
  • Start boiling water for the noodles before you begin cooking the ginger beef. Prep the vegetables while the water comes to a boil, then begin cooking the beef and vegetables. The same with the rice. They take longer to cook than the dish takes to make.

Did You Know?…

Oriental beef dishes cook up quickly because the meat is always sliced into thin slices.

This is a great flank steak recipe, but you can substitute other cuts of beef as well. I often use round steak. Sliced thinly it works very well.

See the Variations section above for more options and cooking tips.
