Beef Stir Fry Recipes

A simple meal to whip up and a much healthier alternative than the take out version.


Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 2-3 people


  • 2 stems scallions
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 lime
  • 2 cups broccoli
  • 3 Tbsp peanut butter
  • soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • rice
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Wash all your ingredients and prep. Chop broccoli into smaller pieces (or your desired size. Mince garlic, chop scallions, zest 1/2 lime, and make rice.
  2. Preheat toaster oven to 400 degrees F bake. Line oven tray with foil. Put broccoli on tray. Drizzle some olive oil, and a dash of salt and pepper. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until ready.
  3. You can purchase beef and cut into strips, or purchase the beef stir fry (already cut and ready to marinate out of the package). In a bowl, I marinated the beef with lime zest, dash of salt and pepper, some minced garlic and splash of soy sauce. Set aside for about 15 minutes.
  4. While the beef is marinating, you can make the peanut sauce which is optional (but it will be to drizzle over the meat to add some additional flavor). Add to a pan on low heat, minced garlic and scallions. Then, add creamy peanut butter, sugar and splash of soy sauce. Add 1/3 cup of water and stir until you get a sauce consistency. Set aside to cool.
  5. In a wok over medium high heat, drizzle some olive oil and stir fry beef for about 4 minutes until browned, or well down (up to you). Toss in scallions to top off.
  6. Broccoli and rice should be done. Scoop rice and top off with roasted broccoli and stir fry beef. Drizzle with peanut sauce.

My garden is cranking out produce, and I also had some things in my refrigerator to use up. This tasted pretty good! Feel free to use other seasonings and to double or triple the recipe.

A friend of mine brought home a Korean dish recipe. It was pronounced Pagogie, I am sure that is not the correct spelling. It consisted of stirfried beef, soy sauce, potatoes, onions, brown sugar, and almost any thing else you wanted to add, without overpowering it. It is served over a bed of rice (naturally) and topped with an egg omelet. I can't remember exactly how it was done. I have tried to make it, but doesn't come out right. If any knows this dish, I would like to hear from you.

Editor's Note: The correct name is "Bulgogi", a Korean beef dish.

I was going to say the same thing- Bulgogi, absolutely delicious. My Dad was stationed in Korea an learned how to make it on a hibachi.

It is Bulgogi but I've never had it topped with an egg. Usually it's simply served over rice with Kimchi on the side. Yum! It is indeed a tasty dish! You can easily just go ahead and top it with a fried egg cooked to your liking. If you Google 'Stirfry Bulgogi' you'll find oodles of recipes for it.

I have the recipe somewhere in my paper recipe notebooks but couldn't find it just now with a quick search but when I do I'll share it with you. It was the recipe a boyfriend of mine, when I was in my 20's, mom made all the time. She was Korean and he was born to her in Korea by an American soldier during the Korean war. Anyway, it's an authentic recipe so will try to find it for you and send it via personal message.

Everyone is right, it's Korean Bulgogi; A friend let me taste some more than ten years ago, which she had gotten from what we thought was a Chinese carry-out. Enter the computer age, and several things were against me in searching for the recipe-I thought it was Chinses cuisine, and my friend had pronounced it 'beef bull-cokey'! Didn't find out til last year the correct pronunciation and spelling, but it was worth the wait! If you google it you will find many recipes for it and a chicken version. Bon Apetit!
