  • This chicken and broccoli stir fry and pepper steak are old favorites.
  • We never get tired of this easy cashew chicken.
  • When we’re in the mood for noodles, instead of rice, this ramen stir fry hits the spot every time.

Each one has a perfect balance of savory, salty, tangy, and sweet, but still with its own unique flavor. I adore that about stir-fries.

Beef Stir Fry Recipe Ingredients

Beef Stir Fry Sauce

  • Soy sauce, Shaoxing wine, and Brown Sugar: The combination of these three ingredients is dynamite. A salty, tangy, and sweet flavor explosion. (Dry sherry is a good substitute, if you can’t find Shaoxing wine.)
  • Fresh ginger: For wonderful aromatics and flavor. Use fresh for optimal results.
  • Cornstarch: To thicken the sauce.

For the Stir Fry

  • Beef sirloin: Cut thin, it’s like a sponge to a wonderful marinade.
  • Snow Peas or Snap Peas: We love the fresh crispness, slight sweetness, and bright green color of snow peas!
  • Scallions: A subtle peppery flavor and my favorite way to finish off a stir fry.
  • Red pepper flakes: Adds flavor and a tiny bit of heat.
  • Vegetable oil: To sauté the beef and vegetables. For even more flavor, use sesame oil.
  • White rice: For serving, to absorb that tasty sauce.

Best Beef for Stir Fry

Beef sirloin is my first choice and go-to when choosing beef for stir fries. It’s lean, cooks quickly, and remains tender. However, you can also use flank steak or chuck steak.

How to Make Stir Fry Beef Tender

  • Slice Across the Grain. Slice thinly across (not with) the grain of your beef. This helps break down the fibers and make it tender.
  • Marinade It. Tossing the beef with the sauce before you start cooking, even if it’s just for a couple minutes, helps tenderize it and also makes a big difference in flavor.
  • Don’t Overcook. Overcooking the beef will make it tough and hard to chew. In this recipe, the beef is cut into thin strips and seared for only a minute, then transferred to a plate, and added back in with the sauce to finish cooking.
