ᛎ Jump to recipe

If you are after a quick and easy mid week dinner then you have to add this to your meal planner or shopping list. Super easy and delicious. Oh and please do not do what I accidentally did and use regular soy sauce rather than light soy, my mouth was burning from the saltiness lol.

Beef and Snow Peas Stir Fry

Cooking Time: 30  minutes  | Servings: 4



  • 3/4 cup light sodium soy sauce
  • 120 ml cold tap water
  • 6 tablespoons mirin
  • 4 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons corn starch

Stir fry:

  • 2 tablespoon rice bran oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 500 grams snow peas
  • 1/2 cup finely sliced spring onions
  • 800 grams eye fillet steak, thinly sliced into approximately 2-3cm strips. Rested for 30min out of fridge.


  1. In a measuring cup, whisk together light soy sauce, water, mirin, brown sugar, and corn starch. Set aside.
  2. In a large non stick pan, over medium-high heat, add rice bran oil. Once oil is heated, add cook the beef until mostly cooked through, about 3-4 minutes on each side over two batches. Remove first batch from pan and set aside on a plate. Once all cooked place all the beef in the pan.
  3. Add minced garlic and cook until fragrant, approximately 1 minute. Add the snow peas and spring onions and cook for about 3 minutes, tossing as it cooks.
  4. Pour sauce in ensuring heat is still on medium/medium high heat and stir for one minute, stirring and tossing to incorporate everything. Sauce will thicken.
  5. Serve with white rice.


Tips and Substitions:


  • Scotch fillet beef also works a charm.
  • Ensure beef is rested prior to grilling to prevent it being tough.
  • Other vegetables such as broccoli, capsicum, corn, onions can be incorporated at the same time as the snow peas.
