#2 – Skirt steak stir-fry

This quick and simple recipe makes for a great weeknight meal.  I’ve kept it simple by utilizing a bag of frozen prepared vegetables to eliminate hassle and quicken the process.  Of course, you can always utilize fresh vegetables if you’d like.  (Prep 5 minutes.  Cook 15 minutes.  Serves 2)


  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • ¼ cup onion, finely diced
  • ¼ cup carrots, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 bag frozen stir fry vegetables
  • 500g skirt steak, thinly sliced
  • hot cooked rice (to serve)


In a mixing bowl, combine the first three ingredients, stir, and set aside.

Next, add oil to a wok or skillet over high heat; add onions and carrots and cook until just tender, about 1 minute.  Add garlic, ginger, and frozen vegetables and sauté, stirring often until the vegetables are just tender and slightly charred, about 2 – 3 minutes.

Add steak and cook for another minute, or until just browned.  Pour in soy sauce mixture and bring to a boil.  Remove from heat, and stir to evenly distribute the flavor.  Serve over hot cooked rice.
