This is a recipe I adapted (a little) from Martin Yan's Crunchy Apple Beef recipe. It is absolutely delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the tri-tip into 1/2 inch cubes.
  2. Mix the cornstarch, soy sauce, and beef together and let marinate while you finish prepping.
  3. Zest the lemon, and squeeze about a tablespoon of the juice.
  4. Combine the lemon juice, zest and five spice powder.
  5. Core and cut the apples into 1/2 inch cubes, and mix into the five-spice-lemon mix.
  6. Dice the red pepper (1/2 inch again!) and cut the green onions into two inch lengths.
  7. Put a stir-fry pan or wok on high heat till hot and add the oil, swirling it around the sides.
  8. Add the beef and stir-fry until it's rare (2 minutes).
  9. Add apples, peppers, and onions and stir-fry till apples are tender (2 minutes).
  10. Put it on a platter and serve!

Altogether this recipe was really underwhelming. It wasn't bad, but it turned out much more bland than I expected. Maybe if the whole thing had time to simmer together longer? I dunno, it was alright but we probably won't make it again.

I've had this when Ted makes it and it is mouth wattering!
