For the marinade:
1 pound beef (flank steak or sirloin), thinly sliced
2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon Mirin (Sweet cooking wine)
1/8 teaspoon coarse black pepper
½ teaspoon garlic powder
⅛ teaspoon ginger powder
½ teaspoon salt
For the stir-fry:
2 tablespoons oil (such as avocado or canola oil)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ginger, minced
1 onion, sliced
1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 carrot, julienned or thinly sliced
1 cup broccoli florets
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup fresh snap peas or green beans, trimmed
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoon of corn starch
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes for heat
Salt and black pepper to taste
2 chopped green onions and roasted sesame seeds for garnish
3 cups cooked Jasmine rice
Marinate the Beef:
Combine the sliced beef in a bowl with soy sauce, cornstarch, salt, garlic, ginger powder, sesame oil, mirin, and black pepper. Mix well and let it marinate for at least 15-20 minutes.
Prepare the Vegetables:
While the beef is marinating, prepare the vegetables by washing, peeling, and slicing them.
Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil and swirl to coat the pan.
Add the marinated beef and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, or until it's browned and cooked through. Remove the beef from the pan and set it aside.
Cook the Vegetables:
In the same pan, add the remaining tablespoon of oil. Add minced garlic and ginger, and sauté for about 20-30 seconds until fragrant.
Add onion, bell pepper, carrot, broccoli, and snap peas or green beans. Stir-fry for 3-4 minutes until the vegetables are crisp-tender but still vibrant in color.
Return the cooked beef to the pan with the vegetables.
Combine oyster sauce, soy sauce, water, cornstarch and sesame oil. Drizzle over the beef and vegetables. If you like it spicy, add red pepper flakes.
Toss everything together in the pan for another 2-4 minutes, ensuring the beef and vegetables are coated evenly with the sauce and the sauce starts to thicken.
Remove from heat and serve the stir-fry over steamed Jasmine rice
Garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds if desired.
Remember, stir-frying is a quick cooking method, so have all your ingredients prepped and ready before you start cooking. Adjust the seasoning and ingredients according to your taste preferences. Enjoy your delicious homemade stir-fry beef and vegetables!
