What Type of Steak to Use

Flank steak works great for this recipe because it’s lean and boneless with lots of intense beef flavor. This steak is best used when marinated and grilled or sliced thin and stir-fried. Use whatever beef or steak you prefer.

What Type of Vegetables to Use

You can totally use your favorite vegetables or whatever you like in this recipe. I like to grab a package of fresh mixed vegetables so there is a nice variety. You can also use frozen vegetables. Frozen veggies will usually emit excess water in the pan as the vegetables cook. Be sure to drain the excess water to prevent a soggy meal. In general, I have better luck with fresh vegetables or thawed frozen vegetables when preparing a stir fry.

Here’s a list of veggies that work great in the recipe:

  • Snap Peas
  • Broccoli
  • Onions
  • Red Peppers
  • Green Peppers
  • Carrots
  • Water Chestnuts
  • Baby Corn
  • Bok Choy
  • Green Onions

What Type of Pan to Use

I recommend a cast-iron skillet or stainless steel pan because those will get really hot and are perfect for searing meat and vegetables, compared to a non-stick pan. I also use a large 12-inch cast iron pan for this recipe. You don’t want to overcrowd the pan with meat or vegetables while cooking. You will run into trouble getting the perfect sear if you do this. Cook in batches if necessary.

This meal came together quickly. I used the stir fry mix from Traders Joes to make it even easier. I love that the sauce is not super salty like other stir fry recipes I have made.
