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 1/2 pounds sirloin steak, sliced thin
  2. 3/4 cups chicken broth
  3. 5 tablespoons soy sauce
  4. 4 teaspoons arrowroot powder
  5. 5 or 6 cloves of garlic, minced
  6. 1 1/2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  7. 1 head of broccoli
  8. 1 red bell pepper
  9. 1 box of mushrooms (8 ounces I think)
  10. 2 tablespoons of oil
  1. Slice the sirloin into thin strips and set aside. Sometimes the slicing is easier when the steak is partially frozen.
  2. Prepare the sauce by mixing together the broth, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and arrowroot powder. Set this aside.
  3. 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.
  4. Add the remaining oil and stir fry the beef strips until they are browned.
  5. Add the veggies back into the skillet or wok along with the prepared sauce. Stir until the sauce is evenly distributed and slightly thickened.
  6. 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. 😉
