what cut of beef is best for Chinese stir fry

For this recipe, I tried flank steak. it’s really good because it’s become soft when you cook it quickly on high heat. And if you cut the meat into thin slices the right way, it gets even softer and is perfect for stir-frying! but I see a lot of people use sirloin as well, so both Flank steak and sirloin are good for this Chinese stir fry.

Ingredients

To create this Chinese Beef Stir Fry, you’ll need:
  • 1 pound of thinly sliced beef (flank or sirloin work great)
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 3 cups of assorted vegetables (bell peppers, broccoli, and carrots are wonderful choices)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/4 cup of low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooked rice or noodles for serving

Kitchen Equipment

Before you start, gather the following kitchen equipment:
  • Wok or large skillet
  • Sharp knife
  • Cutting board
  • Whisk
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Large bowl

Directions

Prepare Your Ingredients

  1. Begin by slicing your beef into thin strips and setting them aside. Make sure the beef is at room temperature for even cooking.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, sugar, and cornstarch. This will be your flavorful stir-fry sauce.
  3. Chop your vegetables into bite-sized pieces. Having everything ready to go is key in the world of stir-frying since the cooking process is lightning-fast.

Searing the Beef

  1. Heat your wok or large skillet over high heat. Add a tablespoon of vegetable oil and swirl it around to coat the pan.
  2. When the oil is shimmering hot, add your beef slices. Let them cook for 2-3 minutes, or until they’re browned and slightly crispy. Remove the beef from the pan and set it aside.

Creating the Stir-Fry

  1. In the same pan, add another tablespoon of vegetable oil.
  2. Toss in the minced garlic and grated ginger. Stir-fry for about 30 seconds, or until fragrant.
  3. Add your chopped vegetables and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until they’re crisp-tender. You want to maintain their vibrant colors and freshness.
  4. Return the seared beef to the pan and pour the stir-fry sauce over everything.
  5. Toss and stir continuously for another 2 minutes until the sauce thickens and coats all the ingredients.

Serve and Enjoy

  1. Once the beef and vegetables are coated in the savory sauce, remove the pan from the heat.
  2. Serve your Chinese Beef Stir Fry over cooked rice or noodles. As for me I prefer it with rice.

FAQ

Chicken or Tofu Instead of Beef?

Sure thing! You can use chicken or tofu if you like them better. Just remember to change how long you cook them.

Is It Spicy?

The way I make it isn’t very spicy. But, if you like a bit of spice, you can add red pepper flakes or sriracha to the sauce. That’ll give it a kick!

How to Store

If you have any leftover Chinese Beef Stir Fry, put it in a container that seals tight and keep it in the fridge for up to 3 days. When you want to eat it again, you can heat it up in a pan or the microwave.
