🔪 How to make beef stir fry?
It is an easy, quick, and quite simple dish to deliver a very appealing and tasty main dish.
- Prepare the vegetables
- Shred the meat into thin strips and marinade properly.
- Cook the dish by adding the vegetables and the meat in stages (see the steps below in the recipe card)
Use the broccoli stems!!
Moving on to the vegetables now... I can't hold this in, I have to burst out and address the issue of certain people choosing to throw the broccoli stems away.
I feel like shouting out loud seeing this 'culinary atrocity'. Don't!! Please use them, they're good!
Please, please, don't throw the broccoli stems away!! Just wash them thoroughly, chop the stems away from the florets and just throw them into the cooking pan two minutes earlier, that's it!
Grate them raw and make a nice salad like this chicken salad, munch on them raw, whatever you choose to do with them but don't throw them away.
The stems are almost the best part of this buffalo stir fry recipe, they're high in fiber, crunchy, flavorful, and full of 'personality lol.
Use buffalo meat
Although buffalo is also a cattle, its meat does differ from beef in that this has a lower fat content and the meat color is darker and the actual fat is whiter in color but all in all it is healthier meat to have.
I cook it pretty much the same way I cook beef so this time I'm introducing this really easy recipe that anyone can prepare in a flash and it is really delicious.
Chicken, pork lamb also work amazingly well with this recipe.
Flank Steak: Flank steak is a lean, flavorful cut that works well in stir-fries. It is also more affordable and widely available.
Sirloin Steak: Sirloin steak is another popular cut for stir-frying. It is tender, flavorful, and versatile.
Ribeye Steak: Ribeye steak is a well-marbled cut that is known for its tenderness and rich, beefy flavor. It is a bit pricier than other cuts but worth it if you want a more luxurious stir-fry.
Tenderloin: Tenderloin is the most tender cut of beef, making it a great choice for stir-frying. It is also lean and mild in flavor, so it works well with bold stir-fry sauces.
Skirt Steak: Skirt steak is a flavorful cut that is often used in fajitas, but it also works well in a stir-fry. It is a bit tougher than other cuts, but if you slice it against the grain, it can be quite tender.
Ultimately, the best beef for stir-fry depends on your personal taste and budget. Experiment with different cuts to find the one that works best for you and you like the most.

🥩 Beef Hoisin Stir Fry
- deep frying pan
- chopping board
- 400 g broccoli (14.2 oz) (tenderstem)
- 400 g beef (14.2 oz)
- 1 large carrot
- 2 peppers (any color)
- 2 onions (both white and red)
- 200 g beans (7.1 oz) (green, French or flat)
- 1 tbsp Sesame seeds (mixed)
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tbsp hoisin sauce (sweet)
- 3-4 drops Worcester sauce
- 1 tsp Indonesian soy sauce (sweet)
- 1 tbsp Tamari sauce (to marinate the meat)
- 1/3 lemon (use the juice to marinate the meat)
- Start by preparing the vegetables first so they are all prepared and ready to cook when needed. Peel, wash, and cut onions julienne or however you fancy but not finely chopped but rather chunkier.
- Peel, wash, and shave the carrot. Put the shavings aside.
- Wash and split/cut the broccoli stems from the florets. Put aside on a plate.
- Cut the peppers and the beans and set them separately aside.
- Peel the garlic and chop roughly.
- Take out the sauces and make them ready.
- Shred the meat into thin strips, place in a bowl, and add some Tamari sauce and lemon juice. Remember to turn and toss a few times so that the meat does get marinated properly.
- Place a deeper pan on the medium fire with half of the coconut oil in. Add the onions and the beans. Cook for 2 minutes tossing it a couple of times. No need to cover.
- Add the broccoli stems and the peppers. Cook for 2 minutes.
- Add the broccoli tips and the carrot shavings and the garlic. Cook for 2 more minutes.
- Add the sauces, one by one, and cook for one more minute.
- Turn the fire/stove off and leave it aside for now.
- Cooking the meat will only take two minutes so you can either do it in parallel and start at step 10 or 11 to finish all at once but if you don't feel confident doing this just leave it for the last bit, it will only take a couple of minutes so no panic of veggies getting cold. Place a frying pan on fire (set high) add the coconut oil and when it starts sizzling add the marinated meat. Crash some pepper and cook for 2 minutes.
- Put the vegetables on serving plates and add the meat, sprinkle sesame seeds, and enjoy!
