Serves: 2 


Beef stir fry: 

  • beef striploin steak 350g
  • chestnut mushrooms 250g  
  • white cabbage 300g  
  • red onion 1 piece 
  • green chilli small 2 pieces
  • red chilli small 2 pieces
  • green beans 100g
  • vegetable oil 2 tablespoons 
  • bean sprouts 200g
  • sesame seeds 10g



  • water 30ml
  • soy sauce 30ml
  • cornstarch 4g
  • brown sugar 10g
  • vegetable oil 1 tablespoon
  • ginger garlic paste 10g
  • black pepper 1 teaspoon



  1. Remove the beef steaks from the fridge 20-30 minutes prior to cooking. Roughly chop the mushrooms and white cabbage. Peel and slice the red onion. Slice the green and red chillies in half, lengthwise. Trim the green beans.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the measured water, soy sauce, cornstarch and brown sugar. Heat a saucepan over a medium heat with a drizzle of vegetable oil. Once hot, add ginger garlic paste and cook for 1 minute. Add the sauce mixture and simmer for 1-2 minutes until thickened. Remove the pan from the heat, add the ground black pepper and set aside.
  3. Pat the steaks dry with kitchen paper. Heat a large pan with a drizzle of vegetable oil over high heat. Once hot, add the steaks and fry them for 1-3 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking. Transfer the steaks to a plate and leave them to rest for 10 minutes. Once rested, slice finely.
  4. Wipe the pan clean and return it to a high heat with a drizzle of vegetable oil. Add the mushrooms and fry for 4 minutes. Add the cabbage, green beans, green and red chilli and onion. Fry for 2-3 minutes further.
  5. Add the washed bean sprouts, sliced beef and sauce to the pan, and give everything a good mix. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve immediately.
