I adapted this from a recipe in BBC Good Food magazine. It's quick to make, especially if you make up the beef marinade ahead of time and let it sit for a few hours, which, incidentally, makes it taste better too! To really save time, but not money, buy the pre-cut strips of beef for stir fries.
- 350 g rump roast, cut into strips
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 carrots, trimmed and thinly sliced on a diagonal
- 1 small red pepper, thinly sliced
- 200 g fresh bean sprouts
- 6 -8 spring onions, sliced on a diagonal
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, to garnish
- Marinate the beef by combining it with the vinegar, soy sauce and worcestershire sauce in a non-metallic bowl.
- Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 20 minutes or as long as overnight if you have the time.
- Heat the sesame oil in a large frying pan or wok.
- Add in the carrots and peppers and cook for two minutes.
- Add in the beef and marinade and cook for another two minutes.
- Finally add the bean sprouts and spring onions.
- Cook for a final two minutes.
- Serve over cooked rice and sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.
