Directions and Tips for Beef Stir Fry

Follow directions on your rice package if you are making beef stir fry with rice. Start cooking rice prior to starting the stir fry recipe. If the rice gets done first, just keep it covered with stove off when done. 

If steaming the broccoli, start it just as you are starting to cook the beef for the stir fry. Do not overcook it. Only cook it a few minutes to take the crispness out of it. Optionally if you can cook it with the beef but, I prefer adding it only at the last minute so the beef doesn’t get over-cooked. And broccoli doesn’t get overcooked.

Can you cook the broccoli in the stir fry?

Yes! If you like your broccoli a bit crunchy or barely cooked you can. 

Healthy Beef Stir Fry

  1. First, wash, and cut up your veggies.
  2. Cut bell peppers into strips.
  3. Then peel and cut up onions.
  4. Chop green onions.

Cook until brown on each side, 2-3 minutes. This goes by quickly, and the beef for the beef stir fry will finish it’s cook time when you cook the veggies.

  • Next, add 1/4 cup soy sauce for the beef stir fry sauce

Some people add other ingredients to thicken up the sauce such as corn starch. But, if you don’t have it or want to add corn starch you don’t have to. Cooking at a high heat you get all the flavors without adding unneeded ingredients. For this recipe, I don’t use corn starch but, you can if you want to. Just follow the directions on the package.
