Beef and black bean stir-fry


A classic Chinese dish, beef and black bean stir-fry makes a great mid-week dinner. Add cooked noodles at the end if you want something more substantial.


  • 2 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 700 gram beef strips
  • 200 gram green beans, cut into 5cm lengths
  • 1 carrot (120g), sliced thinly

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) beef stock
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) black bean sauce

  1. Heat half the oil in wok; stir fry beef, in batches, until browned all over.
  2. Heat remaining oil in same wok; stir-fry beans, carrot, capsicum and garlic until vegetables are just tender.
  3. Return beef to wok with remaining ingredients; stir-fry until hot.
