Easy Beef Stir-fry

Easy Beef Stir Fry is the perfect Chinese-restaurant-inspired dish that you can make at home. To get delicious flavour use lots of vegetables, and of course a great sauce.

2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
1 pound flank steak, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons cornstarch
4 cups mixed vegetables

Sauce Ingredients
3 cloves garlic minced
1 teaspoon minced ginger
⅓ cup orange juice
⅓ cup water
¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon cornstarch


Season steak with salt & pepper. Toss with cornstarch and set aside while you prepare the vegetables.
Place 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan or wok. Cook the beef in 2 small batches over medium high until browned, about 2-3 minutes (beef does not need to be cooked through). Remove from pan and set aside.
Add vegetables to the pan and cook about until tender crisp, 4-5 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside with the beef.
Combine sauce ingredients, except cornstarch, in a bowl and stir well.
Turn the heat up to medium-high and add the sauce. Bring to a simmer. Combine cornstarch with 3 tablespoons water (or broth) and add it the sauce a little bit at a time while whisking to reach desired consistency. Let simmer 2 minutes. Add vegetables, beef (and any juices) to the pan and cook until heated through.
Serve with noodles or over rice.
