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.

Ingredient Checklist


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.
