Firstly, I need to say that you don’t have to make this with beef. I know that beef tends to be more expensive than chicken.

You could even make Syn free Stir-fried Beef with Ginger and Spring Onion with pork if you like. All our recipes are pretty adaptable that way.

What do I need to make this Syn Free Stir-fried Beef with Ginger and Spring Onion?

There isn’t much that you need to make this Syn free Stir-fried Beef with Ginger and Spring Onion. I even think I can count the ingredients on one hand.

Good quality ingredients are always important.

We used Sirloin steak (with the fat trimmed off of course!) but you could use;

  • Rump steak
  • Fillet steak – if you’re feeling a bit posh!
  • Topside, Silverside any cheaper cut of beef – slice it as thin as you can, place between two pieces of cling film and whack the hell out of it with a rolling pin.

If you’re not a fan of peppers, then use some other form of Speed Food. We sometimes add broccoli, carrots, pak choi, or even butternut squash.

There are however some items which will make it far easier to make!

One thing that is essential to make this Syn free Stir-fried Beef with Ginger and Spring Onion is Rice Vinegar.

It’s available from most supermarkets, and we use it a LOT when we cook any Chinese dishes. This is because rice vinegar is the closest thing to Chinese rice wine that you can get without spending the Syns.

It features in most of our Syn free/low Syn Chinese fakeaway dishes. Even this Syn Free Salt & Pepper Chicken. Lush!

A good knife will make your life so much easier!
