I sent hubby out to pick up some beef for my stir-fry. He picked up thin sliced top round beef that I cut into strips. This meal was so quick and easy and only used 6 ingredients (not counting the oil I stir-fried it with). It consisted of cabbage, beef, scallions, shredded carrot, organic Tamari sauce and a touch of chili garlic sauce for heat and flavor. It turned out good and we enjoyed it. It only took about 15 minutes to cook from start to finish. I sliced up my own cabbage and beef, but to save time you could easily use bagged fresh coleslaw mix instead and purchase beef that's already cut up for stir-fry.
I snapped a few photos below and included the easy peasy recipe. Enjoy!
Quick Beef & Cabbage Stir-Fry
1 tablespoon oil (I used coconut oil)
1 pound top round beef or sirloin steak, cut into 1/4-inch strips
2 scallions, sliced
4 cups thinly sliced or shredded cabbage
1 medium carrot, grated
1/2 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
1 tablespoon organic Tamari sauce, or to taste
Heat oil in wok over medium-high heat. Add beef and stir fry just until browned, about 5 minutes; stir in scallions. Transfer beef to a bowl. Add cabbage to wok and stir fry until crisp tender or desired tenderness. Cover to steam lightly and hasten cooking. When cabbage is desired doneness, return beef to wok and add carrots, chili garlic sauce, and Tamari. Taste for seasoning.
*Note: If you've never used chili garlic sauce before, use it sparingly because it is quite spicy. It's typically found in the Asian section of your supermarket.
