Ingredients

FOR THE STIR FRY SAUCE

  • 2 tablespoons doubanjiang or use gochujang - use less for milder stir fry sauce
  • 1.5 tablespoons hot paprika or use 1/2 tablespoon cayenne + 1/2 tablespoon sweet paprika – you can use other spicier chili powders as well
  • 4 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar or use honey
  • 1 teaspoon fresh minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon fresh minced ginger
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch mixed with 1 tablespoon water

FOR THE BEEF STIR FRY

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil or use olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1.5 pounds beef ribeye cut into strips or bite-sized pieces (you can use other cuts of beef - see the recipe notes)
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 ounces broccoli chopped
  • 1 large bell pepper chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper chopped (or use your favorite spicy chili pepper)
  • For Serving: Chopped green onion, spicy red pepper flakes

Instructions

MAKE THE STIR FRY SAUCE

  • Whisk all of the ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl until well combined. Set aside until ready to use.

MAKE THE BEEF STIR FRY

  • Heat the oil in a large pan or wok to high heat.
  • Toss the beef with the corn starch, salt and pepper to coat. Add the beef to the hot pan and cook for 2 minutes or to your preference, stirring often. Remove the beef and set aside.
  • Add the broccoli and chopped peppers to the hot pan. Cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes, or until the vegetables begin to soften.
  • Add the stir fry sauce and stir. Bring to a quick boil, then simmer for 3 minutes, stirring a bit, or until the vegetables are cooked to your liking. The stir fry sauce will thicken in the pan and coat the pork and vegetables.
  • Stir the beef back into the pan with the vegetables and warm through.
  • Garnish and serve. I like my beef stir fry with either steamed white rice or stir fry noodles.
