Beef Stir Fry

 On my most recent visit to my parents’ house I decided to make dinner for them. What to make? Something with plenty of vegetables, and low gluten content.

So I went with a favorite at our home – a simple beef stir fry with with snow peas, carrots and fresh bean sprouts.  The marinade for the meat comes from a Pampered Chef recipe called Korean Beef Bowls.






1- 1½ pounds of thinly sliced beef, flank steak for example

2-3 green onions

2 cloves garlic, minced

3 TBSP soy sauce

1 TBSP sesame oil

1 TBSP sugar

2 large carrots

3 cups bean sprouts

3 cups snow peas

White rice, cooked according to package directions



  1. Slice beef against the grain, into small strips ¼ inch wide by 1- 2 inches long.
  2. Slice green onions.
  3. In a large bowl combine 1 TBSP of the chopped onions, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil and sugar. Marinate for 10 minutes.
  4. While meat is marinating wash vegetables. Peel carrots and cut into julienne strips.
  5. In a large sauce pan heat 2 tsp of vegetable oil.
  6. Saute meat for 3-5 minutes until browned.
  7. Add peas, carrots and sprouts and cook until peas are tender.
  8. Serve over rice, and sprinkle with chow mein noodles.
