My kids love anything stirfried. I love it too because it’s one of the easiest meals to prepare. You simply cut up the ingredients, toss them in a wok and voila!

Now. doesn’t that look yummy? The base recipe was adapted from www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/pork_stir_fry_with_green_onion.

Beef and Vegetable Stirfry


  • 1 pound beef (sirloin or tenderloin), cut into strips
  • 2 Tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp rice wine
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • 4 Tbsp peanut oil or other high smoke point oil (canola, rice bran, or grape seed)
  • 5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 8-12 scallions/green onions, sliced diagonally into 1 to 2-inch pieces, green and white parts included
  • vegetable cut ups (whatever you find in your fridge)
  • ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil (optional)
  • toasted sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Cut the tenderloin against the grain into thin strips, about 1 1/2 inches long.
  2. Put the light soy sauce, sugar, rice wine and corn starch into a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add the beef strips to the bowl with the marinade and toss to coat completely. Set aside for at least 10 minutes.
  3. Heat the peanut oil in a wok or large sauté pan on high heat. When the oil is hot (shimmering but not smoking) add the garlic slices and stir-fry until they begin to turn brown at the edges, about 30 seconds. Add the beef strips then season with ground pepper. Stir-fry until the beef is tender, about 90 seconds (longer if using sirloin), stirring constantly.
  4. Add the veggies. Add the tough ones (broccoli, chayote, etc). As soon as the veggies are tender, add the other vegetables and sliced green onions and continue to stir-fry for another minute, or until the green onions wilt. Turn off the heat and stir in the sesame oil, if using.
  5. Transfer to a serving platter, then sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
  6. Serve with steamed rice. Enjoy!
  7. ***Note: You may double or triple the marinade depending on the amount of vegetables you will add.
