I love the versatility of stir fry!  Meat, veggies…fry it all up and serve it over rice.  Done and done.  What I love even MORE about stir fry is that I can use whatever I have in my fridge.  Any ingredients usually lend well to a stir fry.  In this case, I had some broccoli, a red bell pepper, and some mushrooms that were begging for a job!

My husband really enjoys having creative freedom in the kitchen, so I let him have at this one.  We found a little recipe for a sauce and modified it a bit.

After slicing a sirloin into thin strips, making the sauce, and stir frying the vegetables in some oil, he stir fried the beef and then mixed everything together!  If I were to have some input in the kitchen this evening, I would have served the stir fry over brown rice.  However, my husband is a white rice lover, and I don't think he will ever change his mind.

The texture of the veggies paired with the ginger-rich sauce, made this Beef Stir Fry a “repeater” in our home.

The following recipe is based on what I had on hand in my kitchen.  Feel free to add and subtract as you wish!

Beef Stir Fry


  • 1 1/2 pounds sirloin steak sliced thin
  • 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 5 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons arrowroot powder
  • 5 or 6 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 box of mushrooms 8 ounces I think
  • 2 tablespoons of oil


  • Slice the sirloin into thin strips and set aside. Sometimes the slicing is easier when the steak is partially frozen.
  • Prepare the sauce by mixing together the broth, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and arrowroot powder. Set this aside.
  • Heat a tablespoon of oil and stir fry the vegetables until they are tender, but still a bit crisp. Remove the veggies and set aside.
  • Add the remaining oil and stir fry the beef strips until they are browned.
  • Add the veggies back into the skillet or wok along with the prepared sauce. Stir until the sauce is evenly distributed and slightly thickened.
  • Serve over rice!

  1. This was amazing! I was planning to make a beef broccoli stir fry tonight and saw your recipe linked through Mommypotamus. I pulled it up, put it together and basked in the praise of both husband and kids. 😉
