I’m sure at some point in the nearly nine years I’ve been blogging that I have confessed my unruly obsession with stir fry. You guys, I eat it every day. Often for multiple meals. Always for breakfast. 

All the veggies, all the protein, a hefty scoop of rice…stir fry all day err’day, let’s GOOOO!

How to Make 30-Minute Beef Stir Fry Recipe:

Prepare the Easy Stir Fry Sauce.

Heat the avocado oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef in a single layer (if possible) and stir beef until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. 

Move the beef to the side of the wok and add the vegetables. Cook and stir vegetables for 2 minutes before stirring the beef into the vegetables to incorporate.

Pour ¼ to ⅓ cup of the stir fry sauce into the wok with the beef and vegetables and cook, stirring constantly, until sauce has thickened and created a sticky coat over everything, about 3 minutes.

Serve stir fry as is in bowls or with choice of steamed rice, quinoa, or vegetable noodles.
