Beef Marinade
  • 1 pound beef (cut into thin strips) I used top sirloin steak
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 large cloves garlic - minced
  • ½ inch ginger - finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes optional
Stir Fry
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 3 stems green onions - chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper- chopped
  • ½ red bell pepper - chopped
  • 2 tablespoons oil I used corn oil
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Salt
Marinate beef
  1. Place the beef, ginger, garlic, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and red pepper flakes (if using) in a bowl. Mix to combine well. Place in a FoodSaver® bag and vacuum seal to marinate. Let it marinate anywhere from 1 hour to overnight.

Make the Stir Fry
  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a wok or large pan on high heat. Add the marinated beef to the pan and cook to desired doneness. I cooked one side for about 4 minutes then flipped to the other side and cooked for about the same time. Remove beef from pan and transfer to a bowl.

  2. Add the remaining one tablespoon of oil to the pan. Saute the onions until fragrant.

  3. Add back beef to the pan and stir.

  4. Add 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, black pepper and salt to taste and stir.

  5. Add the chopped peppers, green onions and let them sizzle with the rest of the ingredients for about 2 minutes.

  6. Turn of the heat. Serve over boiled rice or in a wrap (flatbread). Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

1. I added red pepper flakes to my meat because I love the heat it gives to this stir-fry. However, feel free to omit it or reduce the quantity of red pepper flakes if you have a low tolerance to heat.

2. I used bell peppers here but feel free to use any veggies you like. That's the beauty of a stir-fry, You can customize it to suit your taste. It is also a great way to use leftover veggies!
