Beef STIR-FRY with Greens

Beef  STIR-FRY with Greens






600-700g rump steaks, finely sliced

  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, finely grated
  • ¼ cup hoisin sauce
  • ¼ cup soy sauce (reduced salt is best)
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • ½ cup beef stock
  • 3 cups mixed vegetables, chopped


To serve

  • 1 cup brown rice, cooked
  • ½ cup roasted unsalted peanuts, roughly chopped
  • fresh coriander, to garnish
  • red chilli, seeds removed and finely sliced




Heat a dash of oil in a wok or large frying pan over a high heat.

When the pan is very hot, add the beef and sear quickly to brown. Do this in two batches to get a nice dark colour and avoid the meat stewing. Set the beef aside.

Reduce the heat to medium. Add the sesame oil, chilli, garlic and ginger, and stir-fry for a few minutes.

Add the hoisin sauce, soy sauce and stock/cornflour mixture and simmer for a few minutes until thickened.

Turn the heat to high, add all the vegetables into the pan with the meat and its juices and stir-fry for another few minutes until the vegetables are bright green and just tender.

Serve immediately on brown rice with a sprinkle of peanuts, coriander and chillies.
