Sticky beef stir-fry with sprouts is the perfect weekday dinner. Quick and easy, it’s bursting with flavour and very satisfying. As with many Asian-inspired dishes, the secret is in the seasoning.
Sticky beef stir-fry with sprouts
- 30ml (2 tbsp) olive oil
- 1kg beef strips
- 2 seeded and chopped red peppers
- 5 chopped spring onions
- 2 large chopped bok choi
- 250g sprouts
- 15ml (1 tbsp) sesame oil
- 50ml soy sauce
- 50g sugar
- 30ml (2 tbsp) finely chopped fresh ginger
- a handful of freshly chopped coriander
- salt, to taste
- rice, to serve
Heat olive oil in a large pan. Add beef strips and lightly brown on all sides. Add seeded and chopped red peppers and fry until lightly coloured, about 3 minutes. Add chopped spring onions and cook for 2 minutes.
Add large chopped bok choi, sprouts, sesame oil, soy sauce, sugar, finely chopped fresh ginger, a handful of freshly chopped coriander and salt to taste. Quickly stir through on high heat, adjust seasoning and serve immediately. Serve with rice while still hot.
To drink: Groote Post Merlot makes perfect use of a royal grape with savoury, plummy flavours.
