Healthy Beef and Pepper Stir Fry Recipe

Sometimes you have had a long day at work and it is hot outside so the last thing you want to be doing is spending time slaving over the stove. One of our go to recipes on days like this is a stir fry. I love how you can use whatever is lying around in the fridge and the sauce isn’t an exact science you really can adjust it to your preferred palate. Oyster and black bean are my favourites. In this recipe I used oyster sauce and a splash water to keep the calories down as it was on my 5 2 night. A really hot pan is a must though and I like using sirloin steak.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 1 sirloin steak, fat removed and cut into strips
  • 1 red and yellow pepper, de seeded and cut into chunks
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
  • 4 chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 bok choy, cut into chunks
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • splash of water
  • oil for frying


  1. Heat a drizzle of oil in a heavy based pan until smoking hot.
  2. Add the beef strips and fry for 2-3 minutes until they start to brown.
  3. Remove the beef from pan and set aside on a plate.
  4. Add another drizzle of oil, add the garlic, peppers and mushrooms. Stir fry for about 3 minutes until they start to soften. Add in the bok choy and stir fry for another couple of minutes, return the beef.
  5. Add in the oyster sauce and a splash of water, stir fry for another minute. Serve and Enjoy.
