Sesame Beef and Ginger Stir-Fry with Chinese Vegetables

Sesame Beef and Ginger Stir-Fry with Chinese Vegetables

Serves: 3-4


  • 300 g (10.5 oz) piece of Scotch Beef rump (popeseye) or 4 x 75 g minute steaks, cut into strips

  • 4 tbsp soy sauce

  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil

  • 5 cm (2 inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds

  • 300 g bag of mixed Chinese style stir fry vegetables

  • 1 Chinese leaf, shredded

Cooking Method

  1. In a shallow bowl, mix together the soy sauce, sesame oil and fresh ginger. Add the strips of beef mixing to coat.
  2. Heat a wok or a large non-stick frying pan. Stir-fry the sesame seeds for a couple of minutes until evenly toasted. Transfer to a small bowl.
  3. Drain the beef from the marinade and sear in the hot wok in batches until browned – the clinging marinade will act as a cooking medium. Set aside.
  4. Add all the vegetables to the hot wok with the remaining marinade. Stir-fry briskly for 2-3 minutes then toss in the seared beef and stir-fry for a further 1-2 minutes or until cooked to your liking.

Serve sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds.

Substitute the beef with Speciality Selected Pork fillet or Scotch neck fillet of lamb, thinly sliced. And a good recipe to use left-over roasted meats in, finely shredded to absorb the flavours.

Serving suggestions

Have ready some cooked noodles to accompany this speedy stir-fry. Few ingredients required for a fresh and zesty flavour. Lamb and pork work really well too.
