Stir-Fried Beef with Five Spice, Hoisin Sauce & Vegetables Recipe

Stir-Fried Beef with Five Spice, Hoisin Sauce & Vegetables Recipe  a1

Please forgive me. I have been posting a lot about stir fry recipes lately. That’s what happens when I stopped planning my blogging content and go with the flow. That’s so 80s of me!  I can only hope that you’re still with me on my stir fry journey.

I have been doing a lot traveling for the past few weekends which are normally used for planning my meals for the week. In the absence of meal planning, I resorted to what I do best and instinctively: stir fry.

Some of you may feel that I used pretty similar ingredients in my stir fry with some slight variations. Well, that’s home cooking in real life. Having said that, it does not mean you’re in a rut. With a limited fridge and pantry space, it pays to be sensible with what you buy. Plus, if you only stock what you use frequently, that means you are less likely to have food wastage, no?

My next stir-fry is a little different from the past posts. In addition to the usual suspects of ginger, garlic, sesame oil and soy sauce, I have added 5 spice powder and hoisin sauce. I have used the similar combination to make roast chicken which will be featured some time in the future. Until then, please enjoy this one-pan dish. It is an easy way to have your vegetables and meat all in one.

    150 sugar snaps? Sounds like quite a lot. The recipe does sound wonderful, though.

      Yeah, this is a vegetable heavy dish. Beef is the sidekick. :)

    *snaps* I love dishes like this where there are a ton of veggies and just enough meat to make it seem like a full and complete meal. And I’m sure you could add in a combination of other vegetables! Sounds delightful.

    I’m definitely going to have to skip the take-out on Friday night and make this right at home!

    Hello,
    Dish looks delicious. What type of beef did you use and what is five spice? I am in the states and don’t recall seeing five spice at the grocery store. What is in it? I know sometimes we carry different ingredients.
