Marinated Beef Stir Fry

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

I made this up using the marinade recipe from my Marinated and Crumbed Pork Schnitzel dish. I believe it is quite tasty :) You can make it with the vegetables I used, leave them out, or, use what you have on hand.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice meat across the grain into strips and place in a glass dish.
  2. Mix together the soy sauce, lemon juice and garlic and pour over the meat mixing well.
  3. Leave to marinate for approx 2hours to get the best flavour or longer if you wish.
  4. Meanwhile steam the brocolli, cauliflower & carrots or cook til just crisp tender in a microwave.
  5. When ready to cook, drain meat reserving the marinade.
  6. Heat oil in a large pan or wok until very hot.
  7. Add beef strips and cook quickly to seal. You may need to do this in 2 batches.
  8. Add the onion & cook, stirring til lightly browned.
  9. Add in the drained vegetables and toss to mix.
  10. Mix the cornflour with a little cold water and then add in the reserved marinade and more water to make 1 cup liquid.
  11. Add the liquid to the pan and stir til thickened and heated through.
  12. Serve over steamed rice and top with sliced spring onions.

Love stir fries and this one is no exception. The ingredients combined to make for a wonderful evening meal. Other than adding some mushrooms that I had on hand made as posted. Definitely be making this one again for sure. Made for the Auz/NZ Swap.

I used budget sirloin and after cutting of fat had 700grams of meat which I thinly sliced. The DH did the cooking and he stir fried the vegetable (I used carrot juliened, small tin of champignon [halved], brocolli, cauliflower, snow peans, bean shoots, baby corn and spring onions). We also added 3 finely sliced red thai chillies, adding some of them and the garlic to the marinade and the rest to the stir fry. We upped the sauce to 1 1/2 cups as we prefer more sauce and served over doongara rice. Thank you JenT, made as a recipextra for Recipe Swap #26.

My whole family really enjoyed this meal! My 7 yr old came back for a big bowl of seconds! I don't know what schnitzel is - there is nothing by this name at our supermarkets - so I used stir-fry beef and just cut it very thin. I would have never thought to use cauliflower in a stir-fry - it was very tasty! Made for the NZ/Aussie recipe swap.
