My favorite stir fry recipe. Beef can easily be replaced with tofu, chicken, pork or any other protein.

Recipe Ingredients for Beef Stir Fry

1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup vegetable broth
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 tbsp ginger
2 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp rice vinegar
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tsp sugar
1 lb sirloin, sliced
1 tbsp canola oil
2 red bell peppers, sliced
1/2 yellow onion, sliced

Recipe Directions for Beef Stir Fry

  1. Slice beef thinly and place in a bowl with a few splashes of soy sauce.

  2. Meanwhile, mix up a sauce with the first eight ingredients (soy sauce through sugar).

  3. Heat oil in a pan and cook beef slices, about two minutes per side. Remove beef to a plate or bowl.

  4. In the same pan, cook the onions for about three minutes.

  6. Return the beef to the pan and stir to combine.
