How to do you make stir-fried beef?
Making a quick stir-fried beef recipe is actually easy. It’s just a combination of beef–thinly sliced–cubed small, or cut into thin strips are best for stir fries–and seasonings. You don’t even have to add veggies if you don’t want to add it in! That’s the beauty of home cooking: any ingredient that you don’t like doesn’t have to go into the dish you’re making.
It’s knowing what to put into your dish that makes cooking decisions harder. Do you love soy sauce? Would you like some sesame seeds or just the sesame oil added in for some delicious warmth? Maybe, a few vegetables like broccoli or young corn is what you want to add in or maybe the flavor of red bell peppers would make the beef stand out against its bitterness.
The only way to really make it even more delicious and appetizing is to add more ingredients, from more seasoning to different vegetables, to make the flavors of the beef shine. Grab some quick-cooking beef cuts, gather the ingredients you love, and get cooking. You’re going to want more rice with every bowl of these quick-cooking beef recipes!
