Beef & Brussel Sprout Stir Fry (Recipe Inside)

HUBBY: “This is Top 3. One of the best meals you ever made!”

I got a new cast iron skillet today at Walmart and I had to give that baby a spin! It was my first time cooking on a cast iron skillet so I was a little nervous at how quick everything was cooking and how hot it was over the stove, but at the end of this recipe, I was in heaven. It was so good! I had to make more sauce, though. Just do the beef broth mixture twice and add it together. Recipe below!


1/2 pound flank steak
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons peanut oil, divided
1/2 cup beef broth or water
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
12 ounces fresh Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
1  red jalapeño or red serrano pepper, sliced
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
2  garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
Hot cooked rice (I used Jasmine rice)
My ingredients laid out!


Cut steak diagonally into thin strips and sprinkle salt & pepper… I always add garlic salt and other spices to add extra seasoning. Add peanut oil and cook steak until it is dark brown.
While steak is cooking whisk together beef broth, light brown sugar, soy sauce, lime juice and cornstarch (this is the sauce that I suggest you make two of and combine).
Once steak is done cooking move to a plate, clean skillet and cook brussel sprouts with more peanut oil.
After brussel sprouts are a little brown, add peppers, garlic and ginger and stir for a few minutes. WARNING: Once this is added, you will choke and cough from the fumes!!!!
After about a minute or two, add in the sauce that you made earlier and stir for a few minutes.
Add steak and mint into the skillet and let cook for a few more minutes. Serve over rice & enjoy!
Enjoy 🙂


Good Luck!
