Another stir fry recipe!
This one uses top round steak instead of my usual flank steak though.
This cut of meat is not as tender as flank steak which is why marinating it overnight is really crucial. On the plus side top round steak is definitely cheaper than flank steak, so your grocery bill will be lower with this cut of meat! Always a plus for me since I normally go way overboard on my grocery shopping trips and find the shopping cart practically overflowing with the massive amount of groceries I’ve piled up within it.
You can really use any vegetables you like in stir fry – I used onions and (frozen) haricot verts (fancy version of green beans) because that’s what I had on hand. In reality you could go with whatever you like. I imagine broccoli, carrots, baby corn, and different kinds of beans would all work well.
This is one of those perfect low fuss weeknight meals where you do half of the prep work the night before, then the marinade does its magic in the fridge and the following night all you’ve got to do is slice up some veggies and get that wok heated.
I served this dish with rice – which I boiled in beef broth instead of water. Using broth instead of water when making rice really enhances and changes the flavor. You can use the canned broth or the dry cubes mixed with water (I prefer the dry cubes). Of course you would be best off using freshly made beef broth from scratch but who’s got the time for that on a busy weeknight right?
Though if you do put in the time, that rice will simply be unbeatable.
