Beef with hoisin sauce

Stir Fry Beef with Spicy Hoisin Sauce

Hot and spicy food like this bowl of hoisin stir fry beef is something I can eat all day long. I guess you can say I am particular when it comes to the kind of heat I like in my food. For example, I am not keen on Szechuan peppercorns as I don’t like the tongue numbing effect they give and the fact that my drink of water ends up tasting like metallic seltzer.

But give me the incendiary, mouth on fire heat of Thai chilies any day and I will cover my food with them. Thankfully, my husband likes it very spicy too so whenever we order or cook South East Asian food, we go 100% ablaze.

But ordering good Chinese food where we live can be a little expensive and sometimes disappointing. What I mean is paying $50 for four dishes that taste bland; this makes for one sad dinner and a movie night! Because this situation unfortunately happens a lot, I have been cooking more Chinese dishes at home. Call me penny-pinching but when I think of the cost of a simple dish like sesame chicken, I prefer to make it at home for 1/3 of the price rather than be served something that will probably need seasoning. If only every dish could be as well seasoned as this hoisin stir fry beef… Oh man…

This stir fry beef recipe is a favorite of mine because it has everything; sweet, vinegary, spicy and savory. Tender marinated pieces of beef served with peppers and scallion and tossed in a hoisin miso sauce. All that yummy brown sauce drizzled over virgin white rice acting as a sponge and absorbing every last bit of flavor…

Now that’s what I call a great stir fry beef recipe packed with authentic Chinese Flavors!

Most stir fries don’t require the meat to marinate but this stir fry beef recipe takes the art to a new level. Sharp and salty flavors are injected into the meat while a sweet and savory sauce coats its exterior – it’s quite amazing. My version has Thai chiles but you can swap them for your favorite type; jalapeno, dry red chiles or even peppercorns. The choice is yours, make it the way you like it and make sure you make enough beef stir fry for leftovers.

I promise you’ll come back for seconds, in seconds.

Serve this hoisin stir fry beef with rice, daikon pickles and a spicy egg drop soup.

Quick Hoisin Beef Noodle Stir Fry – a perfect family meal ready in less than 30 minutes.

Sometimes the quickest meals, that don’t take a lot of thought can be one of the tastiest meals ever, and this was one that we really enjoyed.

This past week has been a kind of use up what we have kind of week, so not wanting to get any grocery’s it’s been a look in the fridge/pantry and combines a few ingredients to make meals.

Tonight the kids ask for noodles, so looking at what I had to use, I grabbed some ground beef for protein and then carrots, mushrooms and sugar snap peas for a quick and easy dinner.

The kids love the flavouring of Hoisin, it has really delicious with flavours, and you really don’t need much of it at all. I just dolloped 2 tbs into the pan with a few other ingredients for a delicious sauce to coat the noodles, beef and vegetables.

I did discover one slight problem though when putting together this Quick Hoisin Beef Noodle Stir Fry, when I realized we had no noodles. Not the usual egg noodles anyway, but you know what, pasta works fine. So I grabbed a package of fettuccine pasta we had instead and we actually preferred it to the traditional egg noodles you would usually add to a noodle type dish.

If you do have noodles on hand, feel free to use those, either will work perfectly.

The combination of colours from the carrots, sugar snap peas, and mushrooms really made this dish look vibrant and appealing. I use a vegetable peeler to slice the carrot into ribbons, makes it perfect for this Hoisin Beef Noodle Vegetable Stir Fry.

You can also swap the protein to for something like ground pork or chicken, chicken strips, pork strips or shrimp etc.

— PIN THIS RECIPE —

The last few weeks have been hectic with the holidays. Along with all of the normal hustle and bustle, I have been busy trying to take care of some last minute year-end stuff. There have been more than a few days where I’ve needed something quick and easy for dinner.

I love recipes like this Hoisin Beef Noodle Stir Fry. It’s quick, easy, and delicious. And, it’s perfect for hectic nights. Love!! One of the things I love about this recipe is that you can easily switch up the veggies to use whatever you have on hand – or you can use whatever your family loves! We always have broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, and celery on hand so that’s what I used in our stir-fry. Some other great additions – onion, snow peas, red pepper, zucchini, and cabbage. Sometimes, my kids like to add sliced green onions or sesame seeds over the top. You just can’t go wrong with this dish no matter how you make it.

Now that you have the recipe, be sure to pick up some Fortune Udon Noodles on your next grocery trip. You can purchase JSL Foods products at Acme, Genuardi’s, Smiths Marketplace, Albertson’s, Bashas, Safeway, Fry’s, WinCo, and Target.
