Ginger Beef &

Fried Rice

Fresh Ginger root is a staple in my home. It has so many culinary uses, I can't go without it. The smell is fantastic, the taste is crisp and lights up your tastebuds. Ginger is also very healthy for you. It has been proven to help people with nausea due to seasickness, it clears the mucous membranes, is a digestive aid, and much more.

This is my take on a classic Asian favorite. Stir fried Ginger Beef. I always use London Broil as the cut of meat for this recipe. It has the perfect steak flavor without the same hefty price. Sliced thinly and cooked rapidly, the meat does not become tough. I serve it with Fried Rice and a side of crisp Asian style stir fried vegetables. Incidentally, using a heavy copper bottom skillet or Wok gives the best results.


  • 1 1/2 lb. London Broil, partially frozen
  • 1 inch cut of Fresh Ginger root
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • 3 stalks Green onions
  • Peanut Oil (or Sesame Oil)
  • 1 Tablespoon Oyster Sauce

Slice the partially frozen London Broil into thin, long slices. Set aside.

Crush the Garlic clove to remove the skin easily. Use the flat edge of your Butcher's knife to do this. Then dice the clove. Brush aside on cutting board to clear work area. Thinly slice the Geen Onions, doing this at an angle.

You can peel the skin off of Ginger root if you like. I never do. Then slice it thinly, then dice it.

Heat the Oil in a large skillet or wok until it almost smokes. Place the ginger into pan. Now put the London Broil in a few at a time, so as not to reduce the temperature of the pan too rapidly. Toss the garlic and Green Onion in, then stir in the Oyster Sauce. Cook the meat only 30 seconds or so on each side before removing it to a nearby plate. Try to leave the sauce and ginger root in the pan as you remove the meat. Continue until all of the meat is cooked.

Scrape everything from the skillet or wok into the plate on top of the meat. Keep it warm by covering it until ready to serve.

Make the Fried Rice beforehand. Serve the warm Fried Rice along-side the Asian Style Stir Fried Vegetables.
