Beef Stir Fry - Asian Style

"Preparation time does include marinade time, just to allow the marinade to soak into the beef. To get neat thin slices of beef I freeze the beef for 45 mins and then slice thinly, giving me the perfect cut. I don't eat red meat but Hubby and Little Miss (DD) love beef and they enjoyed this quick recipe. Original recipe comes from Annette Sym's which was featured on Channel Nine's Extra but I have twinkled with it"

Ready In:




  • In a medium bowl add 'marinade ingredients' (cornflour, mirin or dry sherry, sesame oil and reduced sodium soy sauce) and mix well.
  • Add the meat to the bowl and mix, making ensure all the slices are evenly coated. Set aside for 15 minutes so the beef could absorb the flavours.
  • Heat wok or frypan, add oil, heat and add onion, garlic and ginger cook until soft but not browned.
  • Add thinly sliced beef with the marinade and cook over a high heat for 3 minutes.
  • Add the greens of your choice (example broccoli, Chinese broccoli, snow peas, bok choy or Asian greens) and beans.
  • Add water to the wok and mix scrapping the sauce on the bottom of the wok.
  • Cook until the vegetables are just tender but retain their vibrant green colour (approximately 4 minutes).
  • Enjoy.

  1. This was tops. I added a very little extremely hot chilli to the marinade and to the stir fry vegies. I also added a drop of sesame oil near the end. My unit smells like walking into a chinese restaurant. Excellent recipe.
  2. This is the best Beef Stir Fry I have ever made! I love the marinade the beef soaked all that delicious flavors! I used rump steak. Didn't have mirin or sherry so I used Worcestershire sauce instead and it worked fine. Definitely keeper! Thank you!
  3. In one word, it was totally 'delicious!' loved the crunchy vegetables and the flavour was perfect, will definately be making this again, thanks so much for posting
  4. A really quick and delicous stir fry. I used a packet of frozen thai style vegies and the only change I made was to add a little cornflour at the end to thicken the sauce, the frozen vegies had a fair bit of water content so the extra water probably wasn't needed.
  5. This was very delicious!!! I marinated the beef overnight and the flavour was awesome after cooking. I also upped both the amounts of garlic and ginger but that was just personal preference as we love our garlic and ginger. I also added extra veggies than just the greens listed as I had a bag of minute veggies I wanted to use up, which included things like carrots, cabbage, spanish onion and other veggies. Thanks Chef floWer for a really nice stir fry and one that we will be enjoying again!!!
