A delicious stir fry recipe made with marinated strips of sesame beef and fresh vegetables – a tasty dinner that the whole family will enjoy!

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.

I serve this stir fry on rice and my family love it! It’s a great dinner for a family with growing children because it’s packed with healthy fresh veggies and a good source of protein.

Stir Fry

  • 500g beef strips
  • 1 carrot, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup snow peas
  • 6 spring onions, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon corn powder
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon beef stock powder
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • White rice, to serve


  1. In a medium bowl add marinade ingredients: garlic, ginger, sesame oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame seeds, Chinese five spice, and black pepper. Mix.
  2. Add beef strips and stir to coat.
  3. Set aside to marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes, or cover and refrigerate for at least 4-8 hours (preferably overnight).
  4. Meanwhile, cook rice following packet directions and prepare vegetables.
  5. Begin to make sauce: in a jug add water and corn powder. Whisk together.
  6. Add to jug garlic, ginger, stock powder, rice vinegar, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil and red pepper flakes. Stir to combine and set aside.
  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.
  9. Heat remaining oil, then add carrots, snow peas and spring onion. Cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until just browned. Spring onions will cook quickly, do not burn.
  10. Return beef to pan and pour in sauce mix. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and allow to cook for a further 2 minutes.
  11. Serve with rice.
