Sizzlin' Stir-Fry

Stir Fry Beef and Vegetables

With this foolproof formula, you can make a takeout favorite right at home!

What you need


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup beef broth
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. minced ginger
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic

Stir Fry

  • 16 oz. chopped stir-fry vegetables of your choice, such as snap peas, carrots, green beans, and broccoli
  • 16 oz. stir-fry beef or any tender cut of beef (such as flank steak or sirloin), sliced into strips.
  • 2 tbsp. canola or vegetable oil

For Serving
Cooked rice or yakisoba noodles

Note on vegetables:
Try any combination of vegetables your family likes: small broccoli florets, 1/4th-inch thick carrot rounds, strips of red bell pepper, snow pea pods, chopped onion, inch-long asparagus pieces, sliced mushrooms, half-moons of zucchini, or sliced cabbage. Just make sure the pieces are all relatively the same size for cooking!


Season beef with salt and pepper, and set aside. 

Put all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until the brown sugar has dissolved and set aside. Chop vegetables, and place in another bowl. 

Once all of the ingredients are prepped, place a high-sided frying pan or wok over high heat. Place one tablespoon of the oil in the pan. When the oil is shimmering and slightly smoking, add the beef and fry, stirring constantly. Fry for 5 minutes or until browned and remove to plate. 

Add the second tablespoon of oil and allow to come up to temperature. Add vegetables and fry for 4-5 minutes or until vegetables have cooked through.

Place meat back into the pan with vegetables, and add sauce. Stir frequently until everything is coated and the sauce has reduced down (about 3 minutes).

Remove from heat and serve immediately over cooked rice or noodles.
