Sesame Beef – the easiest and crazy delicious beef stir-fry. Tender and juicy with a killer soy sesame brown sugar sauce. So good you’ll want seconds!!
One of the easiest ways to cook beef is Asian stir-fries. All you have to do is to prep the ingredients, heat up your wok, skillet or pan, do a few quick stirs and the dish is ready. It really doesn’t get any easier that that, such as making this absolutely delicious sesame beef that takes me 15 minutes. Asian stir-fries come together in practically 10-20 active times most of the time, and it’s one of the easiest cooking techniques ever, not to mention the amazing results!!
To get restaurant-quality tender, smooth, silky pieces of beef, marinate the sliced beef with cornstarch. This process seals the moisture in the beef and make it so tender after it’s cooked. Sesame oil is the secret ingredient in this recipe as it lends the super aromatic—and mouthwatering—toasted sesame flavors in the sesame beef.
If you are pressed for time, you can buy pre-sliced, unseasoned flank steak at supermarkets. If you don’t eat beef, you can replace it with chicken, sliced thinly and you will have an equally delightful dish.
Eating (very) good and homemade Chinese or Asian stir-fries are quicker and easier than you think, not to mention cheaper and much healthier than eating out or takeout. Serve this amazing sesame beef with steamed rice and you will soon add this to your menu rotation!
