Stir-Frying Beef


Prepare your beef

Cut beef into thin ¼-inch strips and marinate in your favorite stir-fry sauce for 30 minutes-2 hours for flavor or overnight for tenderness.
Freeze beef for 30 minutes for easy slicing OR consider purchasing pre-cut beef strips. They can be found in the meat case or your butcher will slice them for you at no cost.

Stir-frying beef

Add beef strips to a hot skillet, cooking in a single layer. Cook beef on both sides until it is no longer pink. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
We often say "the thinner the meat, the higher the heat". Cooking the beef strips at high heat in a single layer will give them a nice crisp on the outside and prevent them from steaming in the skillet.

Stir-fry veggies

Add your favorite vegetables like broccoli, squash, carrots and mushrooms to the skillet along with your favorite stir-fry sauce. Cook until vegetables are tender.
Consider purchasing pre-chopped vegetables to save precious time. Also try making your own marinade like this Ginger-Soy Marinade.
