Sesame Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry

This Sesame Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry recipe is packed with fresh veggies! I put carrots, snow peas, string beans and shallots in my stir fry, but you could also use capsicum, onion, or even bok choy – the options are endless.

I make everything in this meal from scratch (it’s well worth it, I promise!). The sauce mix can be make pretty quickly in a mixing jug, which I then put aside until the very end when it’s added to the cooked beef and veggies.

The marinade I use on the beef is made from garlic, ginger, sesame oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame seeds, Chinese five spice and black pepper – it’s so tasty! The beef strips can be marinated in it for 20 minutes, or if you’re wanting a really flavoursome dinner, let them marinate overnight in the fridge.

Once the meat is marinated and the veggies and sauce prepped, it’s just a matter of cooking it all up and adding in the tasty sauce.

  7. In a large frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat.
  8. Strain meat from marinade, then stir fry meat in small batches, for 1 to 2 minutes, until just browned. Don’t overcook as meat will continue to cook while resting. Transfer meat from pan and place on a plate.
