Sweet & Spicy Edamame-Beef Stir-Fry

Asian stir-fries are one of my favorite meals to throw together! They are easy to prep for and usually take only 15 or 20 minutes make. Meals that are this fast will always be high on my list when it comes time for meal planning once again.

This is a very easy and flavorful stir-fry that even the beginner can sail through with ease. It’s an easy recipe to tweak as well if you want to experiment a little. I think next time I cook it I might add the sauce from my Honey-Chile Chicken recipe. Yum!

If you’re looking for a colorful Asian dish packed with flavor and vegetables, then give this one a go! I found it in a Better Homes and Garden magazine focused on skinny one-pan meals, so this is also a healthy recipe. Bonus! Now let’s get cooking!


*You can download the magazine I got this recipe from here! You’ll find it on page 46.


  • 4 tsp sesame oil, divided
  • 2 tsp finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 cups broccoli florets (about 1 small crown)
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 8 oz boneless beef sirloin tip steak
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame or snow peas
  • 3 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp red chili paste (found in the Asian section))
  • 2 cups cooked brown basmati rice


1) In a large wok or skillet heat 2 teaspoons of sesame oil over medium-high heat. Add ginger, cook and stir 15 seconds.

*Tip: After using ginger root, store in freezer until needed for next recipe. This will lock in the freshness. I like to grate mine quickly with a microplane zester.

2) Add broccoli and sweet bell pepper strips and cook for 4 minutes, or until crisp-tender. Remove vegetables from skillet.

3) Add remaining 2 teaspoons of sesame oil to skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add meat and edamame; cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes until meat is slightly pink in center. Return cooked vegetables to skillet.

4) Combine the hoisin, rice vinegar, and red chili paste; add to skillet. Cook and stir until heated through.

*Tip: Prepare all vegetables, meat, rice, and sauce before cooking in the skillet. This process goes quickly so it’s helpful to have everything prepped ahead of time to speed up the cook time.
