Tips for Best Beef Stir Fry

Best Vegetables to Stir Fry

Look for firm vegetables that cook quickly when sliced thinly (if necessary).

What Is the Best Meat?

Healthy Stir Fry Sauce

Our healthy stir fry sauce consists of the most clean and simple ingredients you probably have on hand right now: soy sauce, maple syrup or honey, cornstarch, garlic, ginger, salt and pepper. No brown sugar or oyster sauce as those are not as healthy and clean.

It is not the end of the world if you replace maple syrup or honey with brown sugar if that’s all you have on hand. I also have used dried ginger many times. Flavor is not as great as freshly grated but saved a trip to a grocery store.:)

The Best Oil for Stir Fry

When you cook on high heat the best oil to use is the oil with high smoke point. The most healthy one is avocado oil with smoke point of 520 degrees F. However, my favourite oil to use for stir frying is toasted sesame oil because it’s so Asian. I do switch between both, to be honest. Here is a table with all oils and their smoke points.
