Easy Ginger Beef with Green Beans Stir Fry
adapted from allrecipes.com
1 pound chuck steak cut into thin strips
3 cups fresh or thawed green beans
1 cup baby corn (these have been cut into thirds)
3 tablespoons cornstarch, divided
2 cloves fresh garlic, chopped
1/4 cup beef broth
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (sometimes a mixture of chili oil or sesame oil is nice too)
1/4 cup reduced salt soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons fresh ginger
Optional: 1-3 teaspoons Sriracha sauce. Not recommended for little mouths!
1. Heat the oil in a large pan or wok over medium high heat.
2. Combine 2 tablespoons cornstarch with 2 tablespoons water. Combine with sliced steak & toss well to combine.
3. When oil is hot, add fresh garlic. When fragrant & add sliced beef. Stir fry to desired doneness & remove. Keep warm. I usually put it on a plate & store it in the microwave until called for.
4. Add green beans & baby corn to pan & stir fry until done, somewhere between 3-5 minutes. Return beef back to the pan & stir to combine.
5. In a separate bowl whisk soy sauce, beef broth, remaining corn starch, onion, ginger, & brown sugar.
6. Add to the pan & cook until thickened, 2-3 minutes.
Optional: Serve over rice.
Serves 4. This one actually reheats well so leftovers aren’t frowned upon.
I hope you enjoy the recipe, we love it in my house! We often add a bit more of the sriracha sauce if we’re in the mood for a bit of spice. It works really well with this recipe!
