Here’s the deal on proteins…I try to keep our protein source under $2.50 for each meal, as I can typically get in a starch and veggies for less than $2.50 to round out the meal at $5…so when I come across a gem like this at the store, I’m sure to snag it up! s$1.85 for a package of stirfry beef, and I can certainly make a stirfry meal for less than $5!
Also, I used snap peas from the garden! I love to munch on them as I pick them, but thought stirfrying would be best for a meal!
Would love to hear your favorite ways to use your snap peas from your garden!
Beef, Snap Pea and Broccoli Stir-Fry
- 1 cup uncooked brown rice
- 1/2 lb. stirfry beef
- 4 Tbsp sesame oil, divided
- 1 tsp rice vinegar
- 1 Tbsp soy sauce
- Few cracks of garlic pepper grinder
- 1 large broccoli head about 1/2 lb
- 1-2 cups of fresh snap peas
- In medium saucepan, bring 2 1/2 cups of water to boil. Add 1 cup of uncooked brown rice, return water to boil and then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 45-50 minutes, or until brown rice has softened.
- Marinate stirfry beef strips in 2 Tbsp sesame oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and cracked garlic pepper.
- Add 1 Tbsp sesame oil to skillet and heat until steams. Toss in broccoli and snap peas with the hot oil for about 30 seconds to a minute.
I’m glad you are feeling better!
I will definitely add this recipe to my menu list. I am making your steak salad this weekend.
I love stir fry and with fresh veggies from your own garden, it’s even better! Glad you’re feeling better.
That looks fabulous! We usually just steam our snap peas, and serve with some butter, a little salt & pepper. Occasionally I’ll throw them in chicken alfredo or something, but our favorite is plain.
Thanks for the great recipe. I linked to this in my Friday Favorites!
we like to make something similar, we like to add spinach and bean sprouts when they’re on sale
Wow a steal! I hit my 50% off meats every time I am at the store so I can stock up on good deals – earlier this week I bought a 3 pound pork shoulder for $4!
Hope you have a good weekend Erin!
Hi I can’t get this recipe too print it says it can’t be found. Can you help? I would love to make this stir fry.
I made this with Chicken instead of beef and used Red Wine Vinegar. It was fantastic! My family usually needs to add soy sauce to everything. It was great just as it was. Thank you!
I use my snap peas like this. Saute chicken slices, green pepper (also from my garden) and chopped onion in olive oil with snap peas from the garden. Stir in 1 flat can of pineapple tidbits or crushed pineapple. Serve over steamed rice with soy sauce. Delicious.
That sounds delicious Debbie! Thanks for sharing 🙂

Just thought I would mention that the onions are not in the ingredients list. Luckily, I had some chopped in the freezer already, so wasn’t an issue to add them.
I made this last night. My husband and I thought it was missing something and wasn’t saucy enough. However, I only had 2 Tbsp of sesame oil, double the meat, and half more of everything else. I was trying to make 6 portions total instead of 4. Will try it as written (plus onions) next time. Mine didn’t look at all saucy like your pics.
Also, my store did not have any beef for stir fry when I was shopping. I ended up with some sirloin tip steaks that I cut into strips which was kind of tough. Any idea from what cut the beef for stir fry originates?
