Skip Ahead to the Recipe

I love making roasts on a Sunday afternoon; especially during the winter months. Most of the time I make roasted chicken, but every now and then I prepare a roast beef. And almost always, I have leftover meat, so I’m left on a Monday trying to figure out what to do with it all, besides reheating it of course.

The majority of the time I would make some sort of soup, sandwich or pot pie, but I felt like something different so I whipped up this Beef & Green Bean Stir-Fry which was ready in less than 30 minutes. Also, Chinese New Year is coming up this Thursday so I wanted to share a new Asian recipe with all of you to help celebrate the year of the Sheep/Goat.

When buying a roast beef, I generally go for a leaner cut like an Eye Round Roast; then season it with a little garlic powder, Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper. Simple. Most of the time, I purchase a roast that is larger than what I need for two reasons.

  1. Sunday Suppers at my house could mean anywhere from 3pp-10pp depending on what’s happening that particular day.
  2. Even if there are only 3 of us, there is plenty of meat left over to create another dinner out of it.

For this recipe, I had already sliced the entire roast beef, so I cut the meat into strips, steamed some fresh green beans; then tossed them together with some garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar and sesame seeds. Stir frying food is done quickly over a medium-high to high heat so it’s important that before you start, you get all of your ingredients ready and prepped before they go into the pan.

The key is to cook it quickly so that the beans don’t get too soft. Once you add the ingredients to the pan, it only takes a few minutes until everything is hot and ready to eat. If you don’t have leftover roast beef, my sister in law told me she has purchased it from the deli counter at her local grocery store.

My suggestion is to buy the fresh store baked roast beef versus the ones that come wrapped in a package. I served our Beef & Green Bean Stir-Fry over rice and my family LOVED it and I really liked how I was able to utilize leftovers to create a new meal which was ready in no time flat. ~ Enjoy!
