Steak Stir-Fry Recipe

"No one would guess this elegant entree is a snap to prepare at the last minute," remarks Janis Plourde from Smooth Rock Falls, Ontario. "To save even more prep time, use frozen mixed veggies instead of fresh. Sometimes I substitute chicken, chicken bouillon and curry for the beef, beef bouillon and ginger."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 teaspoon beef bouillon granules
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1 pound beef top sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 large green pepper, julienned
  • 1 cup sliced carrots or celery
  • 5 green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Hot cooked rice


  • 1. Dissolve bouillon in water. Combine the cornstarch and soy sauce until smooth; add to bouillon. Set aside. Toss beef with garlic, ginger and pepper. In a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat, stir-fry beef in 1 tablespoon oil until meat is no longer pink; remove and keep warm.
  • 2. Heat remaining oil; stir-fry vegetables until crisp-tender. Stir soy sauce mixture and add to the skillet; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Return meat to pan and heat through. Serve with rice. Yield: 4 servings.

"This was an absolutely delicious dish, tasted like it was straight from a restaurant. I also tried a small portion with turkey breast tenderloins and it was also a hit. I used low sodium soy sauce and added corn. Will definitely be using this recipe again"

"I loved this! I did buy the frozen bag of stir fry veggies and it came out delish! I just had to add some salt. I also mixed the rice in the pan with the veggies and meat to get the sauce all mixed in throughout."

"Very good, cooking the beef with the garlic and ginger really added flavor. I didn't have any fresh veggies, so I added frozen mixed veggies and scallions from the garden. Turned out very good, no leftovers."

"I marinated the steak in a marinade and also used both carrots and celery. Next time I will use 1 cup of each of the carrots and celery. I will also use low sodium soy sauce because it was a bit salty but otherwise delicious and very easy to prepare."

"this was very good. I did use both carrots and celery and added some broccoli and cauliflower. I did not have canola oil so I usd olive oil and sesame oil. I used 1 1/2 pounds sirloin steak. I found the sauce a little too thick so I added 1/3 cup water at the end. Perfect!"
