If there’s one dish guaranteed to get your tastebuds working overtime, it’s this stir-fry made with fresh Australian free-range beef.
The combination of a few Asian-inspired ingredients draws out the flavour of the juicy beef rump steak to create a tasty and healthy meal that’s bursting with flavour.
Plus, you’ll get a kick from the red chilli, which will leave those tastebuds clamouring for more!
The joy of the stir-fry
Cooking up a stir-fry is a quick and healthy way to create a satisfying meal. Very little oil is required, and the short cooking time means that precious nutrients are preserved.
It’s also a great method for cooking beef as the high temperatures seals in the flavour, and the quick turnaround means that the meat stays moist and tender.
You’ve also got to love a stir-fry for an efficient way to use up any veggies or other ingredients that would otherwise go to waste.
Big up the beef
We recommend lean beef rump steak here. Once your free-range butcher has trimmed the fat, it’s a healthy cut of meat packed with protein, vitamins and minerals.
Make sure you choose free-range meat for the healthiest experience. All the meat we sell here at Church Street, including beef, is free-range and free of added hormones, antibiotics, and chemicals.
What’s more, the animals are grass-fed, which means that the meat has a lower total fat content and higher levels of fatty acids and antioxidants, making it the healthier option all around!
What can I serve this stir-fry with?
We suggest serving this delicious recipe with jasmine rice and garnishing it with roasted cashews, green onions and red chilli.
You could also serve it with basmati or brown rice or noodles.
And if you love Asian food, why not offer some traditional side dishes to complement this recipe? These could include egg-drop soup, pickled cucumber or Chinese dumplings.
Can I use substitutions?
Beef mince also works well with this recipe, or you can try free-range pork for a tasty alternative.
As we mentioned earlier, stir-fries are just perfect for using up any leftover veggies languishing in your fridge. So if you don’t have the vegetables listed to hand, simply use a combination of whatever you have available.
Veggies that work particularly well with stir-fries include mushrooms, carrots, baby corn, asparagus and shredded cabbage.
