Ginger Beef Stir-Fry

There are so many quick and easy ways to prepare beef on the fly to eat with a side of rice. A favorite method of mine is to pair it with ginger; the two go so well together as seen in one of my earlier recipes: Beef and Peas, where the simple addition of ginger and oyster sauce brings beef to a whole new level.

Here’s another simple recipe utilizing ginger and sauces which can be paired with any vegetables you choose or need to use up: carrots, snow peas or sugar snap peas, baby corn, mushrooms or broccoli. I have kept this recipe basic with only the addition of green onions but feel free to improvise.

    Its a very popular take on among many of my friends who enjoy beef. The ginger slices are a fantastic merger into beef, for flavor and to remove the odour.
