This is an easy, budget-friendly stir-fry meal. You can make the sauce in advance and refrigerate, which makes this even more suitable for a quick weeknight dinner. Feel free to customize the choice of veggies to your liking; this is just a combo that we enjoy.

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, cook ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat until browned and crumbly, but still a little chunky, about 5 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.

  • Whisk hoisin sauce, soy sauce, oyster sauce, water, sherry, sesame oil, cornstarch, and brown sugar together in a small bowl.

  • Heat olive oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add red bell pepper, onion, snow peas, celery, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Stir-fry until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Return ground beef to the skillet and mix well.

  • Drain spaghetti and to the skillet with the sauce. Cook and stir until mixture is well combined and sauce has slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Serve immediately and garnish with sliced green onions.

Cook's Note:

Use ground sirloin instead of lean ground beef, if desired.

Dish is easy to put together and tastes like it came from a good Chinese restaurant. I made it with whole wheat spaghetti noodles. Will definitely be a repeat! Thank you! Read More

The snow peas were not available yesterday so I made carrot matchsticks instead. We all loved the colors and the sauce. Read More

I didn't have snow peas so I added thinly sliced carrots and a cup of frozen peas a couple of minutes before recipe was removed from heat. I think the most important thing I did was use an organic high grade ground beef and drained off the fat. The flavor was excellent. The sauce was great and easy to make ahead of time. Read More

This recipe is delicious. The sauce is very well balanced and flavorful. I didn’t have snow peas, so I substituted Frozen green peas instead. I also had a yellow pepper that needed to be used up, so I tossed it in, too. Don’t skip the sherry, it adds a unique flavor to Asian food, which is incredible. Read More

I made this exactly how the recipe was written. It was excellent. The sauce is so flavorful; like something from a really good Chinese restaurant. The vegetables came out great too and really complimented the dish. I was so happy that there was plenty of sauce with these measurements. I would highly recommend. Read More
