Beef Stir Fry

My younger brothers came home from college and one of the main things they wanted was some nice, home cooked meals. One request they had was stir fry. Because my mom had made her roasted chicken the night before, they wanted some beef in their stir fry for the next night, so i whipped up this recipe for Sunday night dinner. This recipe is really tasty and hearty and great for anyone who is ready for a big, filling meal. Because I used lean beef, light soy sauce and lots and lots of veggies, this meal can definitely be healthy AND hearty at the same time! The only tweak I would make to make it even more nutritious is to use brown rice instead of white (I only had white rice on hand unfortunately.)

Beef Stir Fry

1 lb steak, cut into bite size cubes

1 large onion

3.5 cups water

3 beef buillon cubes

3 tablespoons light soy sauce

2 tbls cornstarch, dissolved in half a cup of water

1.5 cups broccoli, steamed

1 cup peapods

1 cup shredded carrots

  • Dice your onion and cook in large, deep pan coated with olive oil. Cook until transparent then add beef. Once beef and onions are cooked through, add water, beef bouillon cubes and soy sauce and reduce to a simmer for 10-15 minutes
  • Meanwhile steam broccoli. Once meat mixture has simmered for 10-15 mins, add broccoli, peapods and carrots

  • Mix, serve warm and ENJOY! As a request from my brothers I served over rice AND noodles. You can serve it as is or over any carb of your choice! As I said before to make this healthy choose brown rice
