INGREDIENTS

  • Lean beef stirfry: 500g (I use the Woolworths Heart Smart strips)
  • Red onion: 150g
  • Carrot: 150g
  • Red capsicum: 200g
  • Mushrooms: 400g
  • Broccoli: 400g
  • Shallots: 50g
  • Black Bean sauce: 90g (I use Ayam brand)
  • Soy sauce: 25mls
  • Crushed ginger: 20g
  • Crushed garlic: 20g
  • Olive oil: 10ml
  • Salt and pepper: to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Dice onion, carrot, capsicum and mushrooms into bite size pieces.
  2. Cut broccoli into florets, chop shallots, and set aside.
  3. Season the beef strips with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over a medium to high heat and stir fry beef strips with the ginger and garlic until just browned.
  5. Add diced vegetables (except for the broccoli and shallots). Stir fry for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add black bean sauce, soy sauce and broccoli florets.
  7. Stir well and simmer over a low to medium heat for another 2-3 minutes until beef is fully cooked through and vegetables are just tender. The broccoli should be bright green and not mushy.
  8. Sprinkle shallots over the top and serve.
  9. Season to taste.
  10. Serve with your choice of base. I used basmati rice (40g dry weight per serve).
  11. Add some crushed chilli if you like some spice, and top with cashews for extra crunch and healthy fats!
