A Step by Step Guide to Stir Frying Beef
Step: 01: Prepare your beef
Cut beef into thin ¼-inch strips and marinate in your favorite stir-fry sauce for 30 minutes-2 hours for flavor or overnight for tenderness.
Step: 02: Stir-frying beef
Add beef strips to a hot skillet, cooking in a single layer. Cook beef on both sides until it is no longer pink. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
Step: 03: Stir-fry veggies
Add your favorite vegetables like broccoli, squash, carrots and mushrooms to the skillet along with your favorite stir-fry sauce. Cook until vegetables are tender.
Step: 04: Stir in cooked beef strips
Add beef strips to the veggies and heat through.
Step: 05: Serve & enjoy
Serve beef stir-fry with rice or noodles.
Freeze beef for 30 minutes for easy slicing OR consider purchasing pre-cut beef strips. They can be found in the meat case or your butcher will slice them for you at no cost. We often say "the thinner the meat, the higher the heat". Cooking the beef strips at high heat in a single layer will give them a nice crisp on the outside and prevent them from steaming in the skillet. Consider purchasing pre-chopped vegetables to save precious time. Also try making your own marinade like this Ginger-Soy Marinade. Get creative! Toss stir-fry into a tortilla for an Asian/Tex-Mex fusion meal!
