About this recipe: This dish is a speciality of mine. A quick, yet delicious meal made from everyday items in your kitchen cupboards. The steak is stir-fried with onions and peppers, a perfect dinner when served with freshly boiled rice.


Serves: 4 

  • 450g sirloin steak
  • 50ml soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 red onion, chopped into 2.5cm chunks
  • 1 green pepper, chopped into 2.5cm chunks
  • 2 tomatoes, cut into wedges

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Slice the steak into 1cm thick slices across the grain.
  2. Whisk together soy sauce, sugar, cornflour and ginger in a bowl, until the mixture is smooth and the sugar has dissolved. Place the steak slices into the marinade, stir until well-coated.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Place one-third of the steak strips into the hot oil. Cook and stir until the beef is well-browned, about 3 minutes and remove the beef from the wok to a bowl. Repeat twice more, with the remaining beef. Set the cooked beef aside.
  4. Return all the cooked beef to the hot wok, stir in the onion. Toss the beef and onion together until the onion begins to soften, about 2 minutes, then stir in the green pepper. Cook and stir the mixture until the pepper has turned bright green and started to become tender, about 2 minutes, then add the tomatoes, stir everything together and serve.
