Sesame Beef Stir-Fry

In the summer I love making stir-fry for dinner. It is a great way to use summer vegetables. Since I usually do my stir-fry with chicken or shrimp I figured I would give this recipe a shot to try out a beef stir-fry. I am glad I did because it was delicious, healthy and quick, a great summer meal. I added broccoli and red pepper to the stir fry but I am sure you can add many other things like carrots, onion, pea pods, sprouts or egg.

  • 1 pound top sirloin steak (can also use round steak)
  • 1/2 C soy sauce
  • 1/2 C white sugar
  • 1/2 C canola oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 green onions, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons sesame seeds


  1. Mix soy sauce, sugar, oil, garlic, and onions in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Cut steak into strips and add to bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight, or at least 30 minutes.
  3. Cook in wok or frying pan until brown, about 4 minutes. Add sesame seeds and vegetables and cook for additional 3-4 minutes.
