You've heard me say it a million times.. stir fry is such a quick and easy meal that I find it hard to believe that people say they don't have time to make a good dinner. That's silly, really. The hardest, most time consuming part of making stir fry is the prep work and if you keep your ingredients simple, that takes no time at all. Normally, a stir fry will take 30 minutes or less from start to finish. Who doesn't have time for that???
Sweet Pepper Beef Stir Fry
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
1/2 cup beef broth
2 Tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1/4-1/2 teaspoon red pepper flake (depending on your heat level)
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 Tablespoon vegetable or peanut oil
1 lbs. boneless top sirloin, thinly sliced
12 mini sweet peppers, seeded and thinly sliced
1/4 sweet onion, thinly sliced
In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix together the beef broth, soy sauce, sesame oil, 5 spice, garlic, red pepper flakes, and cornstarch until well combined; set aside.
In a wok or deep non-stick skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat. When the oil starts to shimmer (it will get a bit wavy, but not smoking), onion and stir fry for 3 minutes. Add the beef and cook, stirring constantly, for 4-5 minutes or until the beef is no longer pink. Add the sweet peppers and stir fry another 3-4 minutes or until everything is cooked through. Mix the sauce one more time and pour into wok/skillet; stirring to coat. As soon as the sauce starts to thicken, remove from heat, stir to combine. Serve over rice. Enjoy!
