Sesame Beef Stir Fry

I've mentioned before that I am not a huge fan of Chinese food but my husband absolutely loves it! Since we so rarely have it I decided to make something I like to consider "Asian Inspired" meaning I will eat it too. This stir fry was wonderful! I really loved it (which I think says a lot coming from a non Chinese food lover) and I plan on making it again soon!

Sesame Beef Stir Fry
Adapted from Cooking Light
Serves 4
Cal 199, Fat 9.2, Carbs 1g, Fiber 1g, Protein 25.2g

1 lb sirloin tip, sliced. (I bought mine pre-sliced)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 tbsp chopped garlic
2 tbsp sesame oil, divided
1 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp sesame seeds
veggies of your choice (I used sugar snap peas)
chopped green onions, optional

In a mixing bowl whisk together soy sauce, ginger, garlic, brown sugar, 1 tbsp sesame oil and red pepper flakes. Add steak, cover, and refrigerate for at least 45 minutes. (I let mine marinate for 2 1/2 hours)

Heat a wok or skillet over high heat. Add remaining sesame oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add half of beef to pan, and cook for 3 minutes or until browned. Remove beef from pan. Repeat procedure with remaining beef. Add veggies and cook for 2 minutes. Return beef to pan; cook another minute. Top with sesame seeds and green onions. Serve over hot cooked rice or lo-mein noodles. Enjoy!


  1. Just love sesame "anything". Beef, chicken, name it. I've never tried making it myself but this recipe makes it look easy. Thanks for sharing and thanks for linking up on my Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop. Please come back again next week! Sinea
