Beef Stir Fry

While I was in college I was introduced to BD’s Mongolian Barbecue. From the first time I tried it, I was hooked. It’s basically a long buffet of meats, seafood, vegetables and sauces to construct your own stir fry or noodle dishes. I used to really have fun mixing different proteins with different spices, sauces and veggies to make new and exciting dishes. So, I decided to give it a whirl at home. I am so glad I did, this tasted VERY close to what I’ve created at the restaurant.

A friend of mine, Olivia, is very new to cooking and has been experimenting with stir fry as well. So I wanted to provide some step by step instructions to help her create a good stir fry at home too.

If you’re new to the kitchen, like Olivia, and don’t have all these ingredients, feel free to use a pre-made sauce like P.F. Chang’s Teriyaki or Mongolian Sauce in place of the sauces listed below.

Instructions
  1. Cut all vegetables ahead of time and have ready to cook quickly in the wok.
  2. Grab a sharp knife and cut the steak in thin strips. TIP: Place the steak in the freezer for about 30 minutes prior to cutting, it slices much easier and allows you to slice thinner.
  3. Start heating a wok (if you have one) or large skillet over high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of canola oil. When hot, add the sliced steak.
  4. Once the meat is spread out, let it cook for about 2-3 minutes without moving.
  5. Add vegetables and remaining oil. Try to get the vegetables and meat to touch the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until desired tenderness in your vegetables. Add sauce and cook for 1 more minute.
  6. Plate and serve with jasmine rice. ENJOY!
