Spicy Garlic Beef Stir Fry

"This stir fry is delicious with tender strips of beef, sweet fresh veggies and a spicy beef sauce. I like to marinate my stir fry meat before cooking to add an extra layer of flavor. I like to use Dale's Liquid Steak Seasoning, but it can be difficult to find. If you can't find this product, substitute 1 1/2 tbs. soy sauce plus 1 tbs. Worcestershire Sauce. It's not the same but close enough. The heat level of this dish is just right for me, but you may adjust the amount of cayenne pepper per your taste."

Ready In:




  • In a small mixing bowl, dissolve beef bouillon cube in boiling water. Set aside to cool.
  • Place beef and steak seasoning in a plastic resealable bag. Seal bag, releasing as much air as possible, and toss/squeeze with hands until well coated. Marinate for 30 minutes at room temperature.
  • Once beef bouillon mixture has cooled, whisk in soy sauce, garlic powder, ginger, cayenne pepper and cornstarch. Set aside.
  • In a wok, heat 1 tbs. oil until glistening. Brown beef strips on both sides, leaving a slight tinge of pink in the middle. Remove to another dish, cover and set aside.
  • Add remaining 1 tbs. oil to wok. Add vegetables and black pepper and cook until crisp-tender. Once vegetables are cooked, return beef to wok and toss to combine.
  • Make a well in the center of the wok and add sauce mixture, stirring constantly until slightly thickened. Then toss all together.
  • Serve immediately over rice.

  1. This was very tasty ~ just the right amount of heat! Due to some allergies, I didn't use the Dale's Liquid Steak Seasoning so I subbed the soy sauce and the Worcestershire sauce as noted in the intro. Also, because DD doesn't like asparagus, I used matchstick carrots. Will definitely make this again using whatever veggies we have on hand. Thanks for posting this. Made for Bargain Basement Tag.


<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am&nbsp;33 years old and live in Rochester, New York, USA. I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years.&nbsp; We have a beautiful 5-year-old&nbsp;daughter and a 3-year-old&nbsp;son.&nbsp;&nbsp;I am amazed at how quickly our kids are&nbsp;growing and developing.&nbsp; I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as&nbsp;preservatives,&nbsp;hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc.&nbsp; With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century&nbsp;of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed.&nbsp; I'm doing the best I can to protect my family&nbsp;from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive.&nbsp; I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of&nbsp;cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
