Stir Fried Beef and Nectarines Recipe


  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon + 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 pound beef (top sirloin, flank, eye of round) cut into 1/8" slices
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced into thin wedges
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1 nectarine, cut into thin wedges or 1" chunks
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce


  • In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, sugar, cornstarch, black pepper and the 1 teaspoon of cooking oil. Add the beef slices and mix to coat well. Let marinate 10 minutes at room temperature or up to overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Heat a wok or large fry pan over high heat until a bead of water sizzles and evaporates upon contact. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of cooking oil and swirl to coat.
  • Add the beef slices to the wok in a single layer, laying out the slices all around the surface of the wok or pan. Fry 30 seconds, flip and fry another 30 seconds to 1 minute, depending on thickness of your steak, until just cooked through. Dish out, keeping as much sauce and oil in the wok as possible.
  • Turn the heat to medium and add the red onions and the garlic. Fry for 1 minute. Add the nectarine slices and let those get nice and warm, about 1 minute. Add the beef back into the wok, add the oyster sauce and toss to coat.
