Easy Beef Stir Fry

Updated: Feb 1, 2021

Rather than being deep-fried, the ingredients in stir-fries are cooked quickly in a very hot pan. There is just a small amount of oil used, so stir-fries are a healthy option. The vegetables, in my opinion, are really what make the flavours in this stir fry shine, so choose your favourites!

Ready in: 30 mins

Serves: 4


  • 500g beef strips

  • 1 cup rice (I use brown basmati)

  • 1/3 cup soy sauce (I use a reduced-sodium soy sauce)

  • 1/4 cup sesame oil

  • 1tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 tbsp cornstarch

  • 2 tbsp fresh ginger, minced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 200g mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced

  • 1 cup shallots, sliced

  • 1 bunch broccolini florets, sliced

  • 1 x 225g can water chesnuts, drained


Step 1. Cook rice according to packet instructions or in a rice cooker with a pinch of salt and dash of olive oil

Step 2. Heat a splash of sesame oil in a pan over med-high heat. Add beef strips, 1 minced garlic glove, salt and pepper, sauteing for 2-3 minutes until seared. remove from heat and transfer to a plate

Step 3. Without wiping pan clean, add all the veggies and cook for 3-4 minutes until veggies are tender, stirring occasionally. Add in water chestnuts, sauteeing another 2 minutes.

Step 4. Add beef trips back to pan, along with soy sauce, sesame oil, maple syrup cornstarch, 2 tbsp fresh ginger and remaining garlic clove, tossing well to coat. Cook 1-2 minutes until sauce thickens slightly

Step 5. Serve with rice and enjoy!


  • Optional step for more tender beef (skip if you're in a rush). Add 1 tsp cornstarch, 1 tsp baking soda and 2 tbsp soy sauce to beef trips. Toss to combine and let marinate for 30 mins in a large bowl

  • Veggies can be swapped out for whatever you have at home
