We love Asian cuisine! As our taste preferences have changed over the years, we often find many takeout dishes to be overly sweet. Of course, they are likely made with seed oils, too. This recipe was born out of our love for jalapeño beef or chicken style dishes and our wish to dial back the sweetness and dial up the health factor!
Even though the name of the dish sounds spicy, if you’re someone who doesn’t like spicy food, you might actually like this dish! Simply core your peppers and remove the inner white parts and seeds. This takes out nearly all of the spicy factor, while leaving the great flavor of the jalapeño, plus the texture.
The other great thing about this dish is that it is low carb. We eat it straight out of the pan and never feel any need for rice or noodles. However, you can certainly add either of these if you prefer!
Enjoy and if you like the recipe, please be sure to come back and rate it so that others can find it, too!
Jalapeño Beef Stir-Fry
- 6-8 oz Sirloin steak (you can use any cut of steak you like)
- 1 Onion, sliced
- 1 Jalapeño, sliced
- 2 cloves Garlic
- 1-2 cups Broccoli (depending on the size of your steak and your preference)
- 1/4 c Bachans Japanese BBQ sauce
- 2 tbsp Soy sauce or coconut aminos
- 2 tbsp Fish sauce
- 2 tbsp Shaoxing cooking wine or rice wine vinegar
- 2 tbsp Sesame oil
- 1 tbsp Butter
- Black pepper to taste
- Sliced green onions
- Marinate the steak in the liquid ingredients, the black pepper and garlic for at least an hour (several hours).
- Heat the pan first using medium-high to high heat (be sure to use a pan large enough for all your ingredients, otherwise you'll need to cook in two batches).
- Add the meat along with the marinade mixture to your pan.
- Stir frequently for a minute or two to get a little bit of a wet sear.
- Add the butter, onions and jalapeño stirring again for another minute or two.
- Lastly add in the broccoli and continue to cook until the broccoli and steak are cooked to your liking. We usually prefer the the onions, broccoli etc to still have a little crunch. Because the steak is sliced thin, it goes pretty fast so it’s more a matter of your preference at this point.
- Take the pan off the heat and garnish with green onions, cilantro, and peanuts.
