Filipino Beef Stir-Fry

Rated as 4.24 out of 5 Stars

"This is an easy Pinoy recipe if you don't have much time. The beef can be sliced and marinated ahead of time making the meat even tastier. Eat the dish alone or serve with rice. Use a tender cut such as New York steak or prime rib."

  1. Place the sliced steak in a large bowl. Sprinkle the cornstarch over the beef slices and mix to coat. Whisk the soy sauce and sugar together in a small bowl until the sugar dissolves; pour over the beef slices. Mix and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir the onion and garlic in the hot oil until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir the oyster sauce into the onion and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Add the snow peas, green peas, carrot, celery, and red bell pepper; cook and stir until the vegetables are slightly tender, yet still crisp, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a separate skillet. Remove the beef from the marinade, shaking off any excess moisture; discard the marinade. Fry the beef slices in the hot oil to your desired degree of doneness, 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium. Add the cooked beef to the vegetable mixture and mix well. Serve hot.

Made this tonight and really liked it. I did double the sauce and added a couple shakes of red pepper. It was very easy and quick to make, and will definitely make this again.

I thought this was an excellent dish. I used a little over half the meat and just eye balled the veggies. I don't think you can go wrong with this recipe!

Great recipe. Everyone had seconds. Definitely a keeper. I used New York strip and marinated overnight and the meat was very tender and tasty. Followed the recipe exactly
