Ginger Beef Stir Fry

Ginger beef is a popular Chinese dish served in many western restaurants. The restaurant version of this dish is very tasty but requires deep-frying the beef. Our version is much easier to prepare and is also very delicious.

We simply stir-fry the beef with small strips of ginger together with some chopped scallions. The ginger and scallions do add such a wonder flavor and aroma to the beef.

Using lean beef and only two tablespoons of vegetable oil, this dish is also low in fat and is very healthy.

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 pound flank steak, cut across the grain into thin strips
  • 1/4 cup ginger, cut into small strips
  • 1 cup scallions, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Servings:
  • 2 to 3
Directions:
  1. Add soy sauce, sugar and cornstarch to beef and mix well.
  2. Place a non-stick pan on stove.
  3. Turn heat to medium and add oil.
  4. When oil is hot, add ginger.
  5. Stir fry ginger for about 1 minute.
  6. Add scallions and stir fry ginger for another 1 minute.
  7. Add beef and turn heat to slightly higher.
  8. Stir fry beef until well done.
  9. Turn heat off and serve on a plate
Notes:
  • It is important to cut the flank steak across the grain into thin strips. Otherwise, the beef could become quite chewy to eat.
  • You may use half more cup of scallions if you like scallions.
  • For extra flavor, a dash of sesame oil may be added at the end.
