How to make Beef Stir Fry
Step 1: With salt and pepper, season the steak, then toss with cornstarch. Set the steak aside while you ready your vegetables.
Step 2: In a pan or wok, heat a tbsp oil. Once hot, add the beef to the pan in 2 small batches and brown for about 2 to 3 minutes over medium-high heat. Note that the beef does not have to be cooked through. When done, take the browned beef from the pan and set it aside.
Step 3: To the same pan, add the vegetables and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes until tender but still crisp. Set the cooked veggies aside with the beef once done.
Step 4: In a bowl, mix the sauce ingredients until well combined.
Step 5: Adjust the heat to medium-high before adding the sauce into the pan. Bring the sauce to a simmer. Meanwhile, whisk the cornstarch with 3 tbsp water or broth, then slowly add this to the sauce, whisking until you reached your desired consistency. Allow the sauce to simmer for another 2 minutes, then add in the veggies and beef along with the juices and continue to cook until heated through.
Step 6: When done, serve the Beef Stir Fry over rice or noodles. Enjoy!
