Asian stir fry sauces with veggies and meat is always a good to go with rice and noodles and its our favourite too. I had this kind of stir fry for the first time from the Chinese restaurant here in NewZealand.

The meat is marinated with the sauces and a gravy sauce is prepared with spices and sauces and the meat and veggies are tossed in this gravy till a desired consistency is reached.

In this recipe I have used beef strips ( thin cuts ); cut from a rump steak piece. Let’s checkout the detailed recipe below.





  • Beef Strips : 250g
  • Garlic :1tbsp finely chopped
  • Spring onion greens :1tbsp
  • White onion: 1 sliced
  • Celery :1 cup diced
  • Carrots :1 cup diced
  • Sesame oil: 2 tbsp

For Marination:

  • Soy sauce: 2tbsp
  • Corn flour: 2tbsp
  • Baking soda: 1/2 tsp
  • Chinese cooking wine: 1 n 1/2 tbsp

For gravy sauce:

  • Soy sauce: 3tbsp
  • Oyster sauce: 2tbsp
  • Chinese cooking wine: 1tbsp
  • Brown sugar:1tsp
  • Black pepper powder:2tsp


  • Marinate the beef strips with the ingredients mentioned above under “ for marination”, keep aside for 10 mins.
  • Meanwhile in a bowl, mix together the gravy sauce ingredients and keep aside.
  • Heat a skillet ; preferably a wok or cast iron skillet, add sesame oil, add garlic and onions and slightly sweat the onions.
  • Add the marinated beef and cook it without moving for around 2 to 3 mins in two batches and when your see the fat releasing from the meat , start tossing it gently.
  • Toss for 5 mins, add the celery and carrots and mix, sauté for around 2 mins.
