BistroMD Featured Meal: Beef Stir Fry

Featured Meal Beef Stir Fry


Feeling a little stir crazy? Take a journey to Asia by trying our Beef Stir Fry. With tender strips of seasoned beef in an authentic stir fry sauce, this meal will satisfy your taste for the Orient, as well as your appetite.

Stir fry is nothing new, in fact, the concept of stir fry has actually been around for many centuries.

Stir fry is an Asian method of cooking food, over high heat, in a very short period of time. The goal is to brown the food while maintaining the color, texture and flavor of individual ingredients. Most stir fry cooking is done using a wok.

A wok is a traditional Chinese cooking vessel with a wide, yet shallow, round shape. It is usually made from cast iron or carbon steel, and its shallow edges allow each ingredient to be browned to perfection. Stir fry is the most common dish cooked up in a wok, but it can also be used to steam, deep fry, and boil soup.

Stir fry isn't complete without vegetables, so for a splash of flavor and color, we’ve thrown in fresh, crispy stir fry vegetables that provide phytonutrients and fiber. This includes a colorful mixture of broccoli, red pepper, carrots, and mushrooms.

Traditional recipes for Stir Fry sauce include ingredients like vinegar, soy sauce, and beef broth. Our special stir fry sauce takes a more unique approach with a small amount of brown sugar, garlic, and ginger thrown into the mix.

With our tasty beef stir fry, you can go stir crazy, with a dish that is healthy and satisfying!
