Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 30 Minutes



Ingredients

  • For the Stir Fry:

    • 1 pound sirloin steak or stir fry beef

    • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce

    • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

    • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

    • 1 red bell pepper (or any sweet pepper substitute)

    • Chopped mixed vegetables of choice (onion, peas, carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, greens)

    • 1 8 ounce can of sliced water chestnuts, drained (optional)

    • 3 medium green onions, chopped

    • 1 tablespoon sesame seed (optional)

    • Prepared ramen noodles (or substitute with rice or quinoa)

  • For the Sauce:

    • 1/3 Cup low-sodium soy sauce

    • ¼ cup water

    • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

    • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

    • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

    • 1 tablespoon minced ginger

    • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional, and to taste)

    • 1 tablespoons cornstarch

Directions

  1. Place beef in a bowl season with salt and pepper.  Top with a tablespoon of the soy sauce, stir to coat.  Do this earlier in the day, or as soon as possible at the start of cooking.

  2. Prepare the sauce: In a medium mixing bowl stir together the soy sauce, water, maple syrup, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, and cornstarch.  Set aside.

  3. In a large deep wok or dutch oven, heat ½ tablespoon oil over medium-high heat.  Once the oil hot, add the beef.  Cook until beef is brown on all sides and fully cooked through (about 4 minutes each side).  Remove the beef and any juices that have collected.  Set aside

  4. Heat the remaining ½ tablespoon oil.  Add the bell pepper and your other vegetables.  Cook until slightly softened and lightly browned.

  5. Add your water chestnuts and beef to the pan.

  6. Pour in your sauce and toss to coat.

  7. Let simmer 3-4 minutes to thicken and warm your beef through. 

  8. Add your noodles (if using), stir to coat and mix

  9. Stir in about half of your green onions.

  10. Sprinkle sesame seeds and remaining green onions over the top.

  11. Serve!
