Sesame Stir Fry Beef

Aimy worked her last Sunday Night and finally her schedule is changed so we have Sunday’s together now, in any case, I decided to make a beef dish since I was alone for dinner and Aimy does not eat beef.  Had some fresh broccoli and peppers that needed use so I put together a stir fry dish served over bean sprouts.  We are both cutting out carbs especially later at night time, so the traditional brown or white rice to accompany this dish was out, but a nice Chinese cabbage or the bean sprouts worked extremely well!

Sesame Stir Fry Beef

  • Total time:
  • Yield: 4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Recipe type: Entree


  • 1 pound flank steak cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon dry sherry
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 2 large shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon white sesame seeds
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon white rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch


  1. Prepare the sauce: In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, optional chili sauce, sugar, and cornstarch. Stir until the cornstarch is dissolved and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine, and cornstarch until the cornstarch is dissolved. Add the beef and toss to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  3. Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat until a bead of water sizzles and evaporates on contact. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil and swirl to coat the bottom. Add the beef and spread it around the wok in a single layer. Allow the beef to sear undisturbed for 1 to 2 minutes so it gets a nice browning on the surface. Stir-fry for another 1 to 2 minutes, just until the beef is no longer pink. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  4. Swirl the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil into the wok. Add the garlic, ginger, and shallots to the wok and cook for about 30 seconds, until aromatic. Add the broccoli and peppers and stir-fry for another 1 minute. Pour in the sauce mixture. Continue to cook while stirring for another 1 to 2 minutes, until the veggies are tender-crisp.
  5. Return the beef to the wok. Stir to coat the beef with the sauce. Season to taste with black pepper. Transfer everything to a large plate, sprinkle sesame seeds on top, and serve.
