Beef Stir-Fry Recipe with 3 Ingredient Sauce

MUST TRY quick beef stir-fry recipe loaded with mushrooms, bell peppers and zucchini. Serve beef stir-fry over steamy white rice. The easy sauce will surprise you! | natashaskitchen.com

I told you I would get you this beef stir-fry recipe and here it is! 🙂 We tried this hibachi-style Asian beef stir fry on our recent “glamping” trip. My husband, son and I, all LOVED it so much that I pestered the Exec. Chef of Conestoga Ranch, Vincent, for about a week asking him for the deets.

After getting a list of ingredients, I went to work to recreate this yummy and easy beef stir fry recipe. It’s loaded with mushrooms, zucchini and bell pepper. All you need to make this Asian Beef Stir Fry a meal is a bowl of buttery, steamy white rice (I guess yours doesn’t have to be buttery, but I just can’t resist). Thank you Vincent for sharing this irresistible beef stir fry with us!

The 3-ingredient sauce is so ridiculously simple but it’s really all you need to get that grilled Asian BBQ flavor that we were after. I tinkered with the proportions until it was just right. Keep in mind if you use a sweet BBQ sauce, the sauce will be considerably sweeter which is why we opted to use an original BBQ sauce. P.S. This recipe also works well with pork strip loin or tenderloin. Enjoy!!

Ingredients for Best Asian Beef Stir-Fry:

1 lb top sirloin steak or chuck
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 medium yellow zucchini, sliced on the diagonal
1 medium onion, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1/2 lb mushrooms, thin sliced
1 tsp grated ginger
1 garlic clove, minced or pressed
1/2 Tbsp sesame seeds, for garnish
Oil to Saute (one with a high smoke; extra light olive oil, avocado oil, canola,…)

      Hi Angie, I haven’t tested anything else and the BBQ sauce was a shortcut so you’ll probably have to combine several ingredients to get a similar flavor. I wish I had an easy answer for that. Reply

    Hi! How do you go about choosing a type of beef for your dishes? When i go to a store to buy beef i get confused about the different parts of it and what they are best for. Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      January 16, 2017

      I’m the same way – I try to look up recipes online to see what cuts are recommended and if 2 out of 3 mention a specific cut, that’s the one I go for! If I didn’t figure it out before going to the store, I’ll stand with my phone and be googling. 🙂 I do lots of research before I post a recipe and not just research but testing. Some cuts are better for certain dishes because they are marbled. For this one, because it’s thinly sliced against the grain, it’s ok if the steak isn’t super marbled so a chuck steak or a sirloin would work great. You could also use a flank steak – it’s my favorite for stir fry’s but it is a bit spendy compared to the other 2. I hope that helps! Reply

    Made this for dinner last night.. the barbecue flavor was way to overpowering for us but I used sweet baby rays BBQ so maybe that’s why? I ended up adding more soy sauce and also some sesame seeds oil to give it more of an Asian flavor. Was very tasty. Reply

      Hi Valentina, yes if you use a sweet BBQ sauce, it definitely makes the recipe more sweet which is why I recommend using an original bbq sauce. I’ve actually tried a sweet one before and also had to add more soy sauce to balance it. I’m glad you liked it 🙂 Reply

      Olga, what kind of meat did you use and was the meat cooked over high heat to sear in the juices? Also its very important to slice the meat as thinly as possible against the grain. A thinned sliced beef cooked over high heat will be cooked very quickly. Overcooked beef will be hard to chew. Reply

    I am drooling over this one! I love stir-fry, beef, pork, shrimp…anything stir-fry! And yes, definitely eat it with rice. Rice is a staple in the Philippines as potatoes are in the US.

    Good evening,Natasha. This looks good. How long do u cook your beef? I fry it first,then I simmer it for about 3 hrs. and the meat is still chewy,I cook it again for some time? Why, is it cause we bought the meat from the farm. Do u think that’s why? I’m not to good of preping out of beef. Reply

      Hi Olga, it really depends on the cut of beef and the cooking method. Beef in a slow cooker works best when it’s on low for eight hours. In a stirfry like this one, if you slice the meat very very thin against the grain, it will be easy to chew even though it is cooked quickly. Also, in a stirfry, it is important to cook the beef over high heat to see her in the juices. You don’t want to cook beef two lawn with the stirfry like this one or it will become chewy. When you say that you simmer beef for three hours, are you simmering it in some sort of liquid or sauce and are you using something like a Dutch oven with the lid to seal in moisture? There are so many variables when it comes to beef, I hope that answer helps somewhat. Reply
