Sesame Beef Stir- Fry

I know at the beginning of the year, so many of us "resolve" to work out, eat healthier, etc... So today- I have a healthy dinner option for you. And in less than 2 weeks, I've already made it twice- so that ought to tell you at least how much I like it. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons lower- sodium soy sauce
  • 1.5 teaspoons dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
  • 1 pound presliced stir- fry meat (such as flank or boneless sirloin steak)
  • 8 green onions, cut into 1- inch pieces (white and light green parts only)
  • 4 cups bagged baby spinach leaves
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl.

Heat a wok or skillet over high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add half of the beef to pan, and cook for 3 minutes or until browned. Remove beef from pan. Repeat procedure with remaining beef. Add onions, cook for 1 minute. Add soy sauce mixture, cook for 1 minute. Return beef to pan; cook 1 minute. Stir in spinach, and cook 30 seconds. Top with sesame seeds. I then serve mine along side some Japanese sticky rice.

  2. This was so great! I derailed last night's dinner plans when I saw this :) I actually made it with chicken and added broccoli and it was yummy!! I think I'll make a bunch of the sauce and keep it in the fridge for easy, healthy dinners. Thanks for this one Brandi!!!
