Chilli Beef & Green Bean Stir Fry Recipe

How to Make Chilli Beef & Green Bean Stir Fry with Cashews


  1. Combine the beef strips with the chilli, garlic, ginger and a little oil. Steam or microwave the green beans until just tender. Combine the soy and oyster sauces, lemon juice, sugar and cornflour in a bowl.
  2. Heat the wok and ensure it is hot. Add the olive oil, then onion, cooking until soft. Remove from the wok and reserve.
  3. Reheat the wok, ensuring it is hot. Stir fry the beef strips in 3 batches, reserving each cooked batch to rest in a warm bowl. Reheat wok between each batch.
  4. Return the onion and beef to the wok and add the combined sauce and cornflour mixture. Toss until just thickened, stir through the cooked green beans. Scatter with the cashews and serve with steamed jasmine rice.
