Sesame Beef StirFry

Updated: Sep 24, 2020

Tender slices of beef and colourful vegetables sautéed in a yummy homemade sesame sauce! Served over basmati rice & topped with finely sliced green onion!

This was so easy to make and is perfect for batch cooking meal prep!


* 1 pound of flank steak, sliced into strips

* 2 tbs corn starch or arrowroot powder

* 2 tbs avocado oil

* 1 onion, chopped

* 5 cloves of garlic minced

* 1 tsp grated fresh ginger

* 1/2 cup sliced carrots

* 3 cups of broccoli florets

* 1/2 cup of the broccoli stems sliced

* Pinch of ground red chili powder or chili flakes for heat

* 2 tbs rice vinegar

* 2 tbs soy sauce

* 2 tbs sesame oil

* 1/4 cup brown sugar

* 1/2 cup beef broth (I used beef bouillon and added water)


Step 1: To make the sauce: in a small bowl whisk together beef broth, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and chilli powder if using and set aside.

Step 2: Toss sliced beef in a large bowl with corn starch or arrowroot powder.

Step 3: Heat 1 tbs avocado oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add sliced beef and cook until it browns. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Step 4: Add remaining 1 Tbs of avocado oil to the pan and sauté onions, garlic and ginger for a few minutes until softened. Then stir in carrots. Once carrots are slightly cooked add in the sauce mixture.

Step 5: Add the reserved beef to the skillet and stir. Add in the broccoli and let simmer for 5 minutes or so until the sauce thickens a bit.

Serve over rice and garnish with thinly sliced green onion!
