I admit that I’ve been a *little* distracted while writing this post, mainly because I keep going back for another taste of this delicious Steak Stir-fry. You know, just to make sure it’s as scrumptious as I remembered… from minutes ago.
Still tender, flavourful and chock full of fresh ingredients? Lemme check. Be right back.
You may not understand my obsession until you try this easy-to-make, family-pleasing dish for yourself.
The best part? I grabbed everything I needed from my favourite one-stop shop, Walmart Canada. Now, every cut of beef Walmart sells is 100% Canadian AAA Angus beef, so I can always find premium-quality, fresh beef at affordable prices. The beef is locally sourced from Canadian farms and ranches with ideal conditions for raising Angus beef cattle, and my purchase supports hard-working Canadians who care about sustainability and quality.
At my local store, I found 100% Canadian AAA Angus Beef cuts including Strip Loin Steak, Boneless Sirloin Tri-Tip Steak, Beef Strip Loin Medallion, Bone in Strip Loin Steak, Beef Top Sirloin Steak and more, perfectly timed for the upcoming long weekend and the kick-off to barbecue season!
The recipe calls for top sirloin steak – a lean, healthy cut with the optimal amount of marbling for great flavour – and a variety of fresh ingredients to add colour and texture to the dish. I selected a package of four steaks, using two pieces for my recipe and saving the other two for grilling on the barbecue this weekend.
Here’s what you need:
1.5 lb. 100% Canadian AAA Angus top sirloin steak (cut into 1″ pieces)
½ lb Bell peppers julienned into strips
2 ears Sweet corn, shucked/kernels cut off
1 tbsp Fresh ginger, minced
3 Large garlic cloves, sliced
¼ cup Soy sauce
2 tbsp Sesame seeds
1 bunch Scallions
2 tbsp Sesame oil
Cooked Jasmine or Basmati rice
Here’s what you need to do:
In a wok or large sauté pan, sauté steak in sesame oil for two minutes. Add peppers, corn kernels, ginger and garlic.
Cook together for 5 minutes, then add lime and soy sauce. Divide cooked rice among four bowls. Top with stir-fry and garnish with chopped scallions and sesame seeds.
In the past, I’ve used lower grade cuts of beef in stir-fry dishes, thinking that marinating the meat would help tenderize and break down the toughness. And frankly, it did work – but not well. However, I’ve now realized that there’s truly no substitute for using a quality cut of AAA Angus beef. The top sirloin from Walmart was tender, melt-in-your-mouth perfect.
Am I obsessed? Let’s just say my taste buds are still in #Steakcation mode.
The prep work took less than 15 minutes and total cooking time was roughly the same, making this an authentic 30-minute meal. It will become a new staple for busy weeknights!
Try 100% Canadian AAA Angus beef at your local Walmart or Walmart.ca; I know you’ll love it. Walmart also offers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee: If you are not fully satisfied with the quality and freshness of any fresh beef product, simply bring it back with your receipt for a full refund.
Better Quality. Same Low Prices. The beef has changed. The prices remain low. What’s not to love?
