Top sirloin steak is one of the leanest cuts of beef available. Keep the meat tender and juicy with this quick-cooking stir-fry packed with veggies and a flavorful marinade. Make sure to slice the steak against the grain to prevent chewiness. To save time, use frozen brown rice instead of cooking rice from scratch.
Home » Recipes » Beef Stir-Fry with Bell Peppers, Carrots and Snow Peas
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon low-sodium tamari
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3/4 pound top sirloin steak, thinly sliced against the grain
2 medium shallots, thinly sliced
2 red bell peppers, thinly sliced
4 carrots, thinly sliced
8 ounces snow peas, strings removed
3 cups cooked brown rice
1/4 cup chopped toasted cashews
Combine vinegar, tamari, ginger and garlic in a medium bowl. Toss sliced beef in mixture and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
After beef has marinated, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef and marinade and cook until beef is just done to your liking, about 5 minutes. Remove beef and juices to a bowl, cover and keep warm. Add ½ cup water to the skillet, bring to a simmer, add shallots and cook 3 minutes or until tender. Stir in bell peppers and carrots. Reduce heat to medium and cover. Cook until vegetables are just fork tender, 7 to 8 minutes, stirring once. Uncover and increase heat to medium-high. Add snow peas and cook 2 minutes longer. Return beef and any juices to skillet and cook 1 minute longer to heat everything thoroughly. Serve with cooked brown rice and garnish with cashews.
