This post was originally posted on Jan 31, 2012. Updated with new photos.

Recently I bought some wagyu beef from the market. I used some of the meat to make the ponzu and miso butter steak, and the leftover, I made them into Chinese ginger and scallion beef, which is one of my favorite Chinese beef stir-fry.

Ginger and Scallion Beef

Ginger and scallion stir-fry is one of the very first Chinese recipes I learned when I first started cooking. I just love fresh ginger and scallion, for example: ginger and scallion chicken and  ginger and scallion crab. I love the light oyster-based sauce and a dose of wok hei (breath of wok), which makes the dish so delicious and appetizing. I get hungry at the thought of pairing ginger and scallion beef with soft, fluffy steamed rice, fresh 0ff the rice cooker. Yum!

    I just placed my second order with Asian365 by the way – they ship so quickly and it’s so convenient as even my giant asian supermarket doesn’t carry certain things [or I simply cannot communicate sufficiently to find them!]

    So enjoying your recipes as always . . .

    I will definitely try this recipe, however, I cannot eat MSG, or sugar. I will try to come up with an alternative to the ingredients that contain MSG, and sugar. This is always a problem for me when I prepare Asian recipes. I usually make my own sauces so I can eliminate MSG, and sugar. I use extra garlic, onion, ginger, turmeric, soy sauce with no added MSG, Splenda, and in some cases a little extra Sea Salt.

      Low-sodium, gluten-free soy with loads of ginger, scallions, some sea salt and Splenda is a splendid idea to a great ginger and scallion beef stir-fry!

    Hi Bee! I bought your cookbook and spent all day Saturday cooking. It was fabulous! What a treasure your book is! Thank you for sharing!

    I just made your beef with brocoli tonight and my boys couldn’t get enough of it.
    I just have a question, I went to a Korean market to buy the beef and they had a beautifully sliced boneless short rib that had a nice marbling ,can I buy that instead of flank ?I bought flank tonight and I sometimes find it a bit tough.
    Thank you and love your cookbook .

    • Rasa Malaysia

      Yes, you sure can. If the boneless short rib are thinly sliced, make sure you cook them under 5 minutes, and not marinate the meat more than 5 minutes. Otherwise, water from meat might leak out to the marinade and meat might turns out bit tough and dry.

  5. Bee, this looks mighty delicious. I often order this dish in nonya restaurant (Chinese dish section) in KL.
    Now I can make it at home. Thanks for sharing.

    This is one of the first wok recipes I learned by a taiwanese lady in Australia. However her cooking technique was slightly different, it’s still the same dish. I will post the recipe i learnt from this dish after my trip to Kuala Lumpur:).

    Mmm, I imagine the wagyu beef beeing extremely tender and delicious to work with.

  7. Wagyu beef…. sounds really delicious. It is luxurious food even here in Tokyo. I have never tried it but can imagine the taste. :-) Stir fry beef with light seasoning, this is the recipe I have been looking for. Thanks.

    Just tried making this recipe for my fiance, and it turned out great! Reduced the amount of wine to 1 tbs instead of 2tbs. Thank you for this recipe, it’s a keeper :)

    Bee, your Beef & Ginger recipe is out of this world! My husband, Sebastian is still raving about it! I love it too! I just love your website & so does hubby! Many thanks! Look forward to trying recipes in your cookbook that i just purchased!

    This looks do all of your recipes! :) Just wondering though, when do I add the scallions? Can’t seem to find it in the recipe. Also, Im from Toronto, Ontario in Canada and have been having a hard time finding some ingredients. You wouldn’t happen to know of any places that sell Asian spices or sauces that ship to Canada at reasonable shipping rates, would you? I know it’s a long shot but no harm in asking, right?
    In any case, thanks again for the wonderful recipes and for the help!
