Gluten Free Beef Stir Fry

I love stir fry meals for busy weeknights!  When you get home from a long day at work, you don’t want to spend a lot of time making dinner.  This is one of my favorite Asian inspired recipes that is on the table in 30 minutes.  I used frozen veggies to make the prep even faster!  Use petite sirloin when possible and slice it yourself.  It will be far more tender and flavorful than the cuts usually sold as stir fry beef.

3-4 Servings

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 lb. petite sirloin cut into thin strips
  • 4 oz. gluten free Pad Thai rice noodles
  • 1 lb. bag frozen Asian stir fry vegetables
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 baby Bok choy, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Mirin (rice wine)
  • 2 tbsp.  gluten free soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup gluten free chicken broth
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. ginger powder
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • olive oil
  • toasted sesame oil
  • additional gluten free soy sauce, to taste
  • ground pepper, to taste
  • scallions, for finishing (optional)
  • toasted sesame seeds (optional)

Preparation:

Toast sesame seeds in a small saucepan and set aside.

Whisk together the Mirin, soy sauce, chicken broth, garlic powder, ginger powder and cornstarch.  Set aside.  Boil water for the noodles and salt well.

Chop the Bok choy, separating the bulb from the leaves.

Heat a large skillet and add a little olive oil with 1 tsp. sesame oil.  Quickly brown the beef on the outside (don’t cook through), transfer to a bowl and sprinkle with gluten free soy sauce.

Wipe the skillet clean, and begin cooking the onion in olive oil, with a tsp. of sesame oil.  Add the bulb (bottom section) of the Bok choy, reserving the leaves.

Next add the frozen veggies, garlic and Bok choy leaves.  Season with ground pepper and a few more shakes of soy sauce.  Cover and cook 3 minutes.

Cook the noodles for 3 minutes and drain.  To finish, add the beef back to the skillet, and toss for 30 seconds to finish cooking.

Add the noodles and pour the sauce over everything, then use 2 spatulas to turn and coat evenly with the mixture.  Toss continuously for about 1 minute or until the sauce thickens.

Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with scallions and/or sesame seeds.

This dinner is a real family favorite.  People are always surprised at how easy it comes together and the frozen veggies are a real time saver.

Notes ♪♫ Always check that your soy sauce, chicken broth, seasonings and noodles are gluten free.
