Quick & Easy Asian-Style Ground Beef Stir Fry


A Two for Tuesday Recipe 

I enjoy Asian food or should I say Asian-American food. It is tasty food but it is also usually very simple to make and most importantly cooks up fast! As you know, I love simple and fast meals that I can make during the week. Unfortunately, I do not have a wok and if you don't either, no worries, any skillet will do fine. What I like about stir fry dishes is that you can customize them to your liking by adding as many or as little vegetables/ingredients as you want. Most stir fry's are made with chicken or beef but this recipe is unique in that it is with ground beef, one of my favorite cuts of beef. It cooks fast, it's cheap, it's versatile and always delivers in taste. Take this stir fry recipe and add to it, build on it. If I were to repeat the recipe I would add bean sprouts and broccoli. You can add mushrooms, carrots, snow peas, bok choy, anything you like! Have fun with it. The serving amount is enough for dinner and tomorrow's lunch... you know, the lunch that will make everyone else jealous at work!

Serves 4

2 cups white rice
1lb Ground Beef
4 eggs, beaten
2 tbs sesame oil
1 onion, chopped
1 scallion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup frozen peas
1 teaspoon sugar
3 tbs soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger
pinch salt

1. Cook the rice according to package directions or to your liking. Set aside.

2. In a wok/skillet on medium heat, cook the eggs until set. Set aside on a dish.

3. Add the oil and beef to the wok/skillet and break any chunks with a wooden spoon. Cook until evenly browned, 4-5 minutes. Stir in the onion, scallion, garlic and peas. Stir fry for an additional 3 minutes.

4. Add the rice, soy sauce, sugar, ginger and eggs. Cook and stir occasionally for about 1-2 minutes, until heated through.

5. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes:
This recipe serves as a springboard. You are only limited by what's in the fridge.
If you don't have peas, but you do have carrots, use that instead. Got peas, carrots and cabbage - add 'em in. Experiment and have fun!


  1. I love stir fries. Jackie, this looks great. I bet it would e good with ground pork too.

    1. What I love about this recipe is that you use whatever is in the fridge. The recipe itself is the springboard. Ground pork would certainly be really tasty!

  2. Hi Jackie! I tried this recipe and this is really delicious! Actually, my friend also tried this and he told to me that his family also like this food.
