What You Need
There’s not a whole lot that you need for this beef stir fry so don’t feel the need to run to the grocery store - you just might already have what you need!
- 1 lb flank steak, sliced thin

- 1 yellow onion
- 4 garlic cloves
- 4 tbsp corn oil
- 2 tbsp olive oil

This recipe is very simple and easy! Even if you’re a beginner with Asian food, you’ll have no problem with this dish. Please note that for the vegetables and spices, you can add as much or as little as you’d like, so don’t freak out, because I didn’t list specific measurements! Tasting as you go is the key here.
- First things first, set your angel hair pasta on the stove according to directions. Only cook as much as you need and don’t forget to salt it! *You want the noodles to be extra tender*
- In a bowl, spice the steak with a generous amount of salt, black pepper, garlic powder, ginger, and crushed red pepper. Drizzle olive oil over steak and rub spices in.
- Heat 2 tbsp corn oil in a wok or wide pan on medium-high heat. Sauté onion and garlic until transparent and fragrant. Cook steak until browned, then remove and set aside.
- Heat another 2 tbsp corn oil and toss in all of your vegetables. Spice with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, ginger, and crushed red pepper. Sauté vegetables for 5 minutes, then add in a couple tbsp water and cover to steam until soft.
- Add steak to the vegetables and cook together for another 5 minutes. Add your soft noodles to the pan and add a few tbsp of soy sauce to start off with. Cook all together until steak is cooked to your liking. Give it a taste to adjust salt and soy sauce, if needed, and enjoy!
