Method

  1. Mix the steak, soy sauce, sugar, chilli sauce and vinegar together, and set aside for 10 mins.
  2. Heat a wok with 1 tsp of the oil. Lift the steak from the marinade and sear, in batches, then remove. Add a bit more oil and fry the ginger until golden. Add the spring onions and pineapple, and return the steak to the pan. Stir to heat through for 1 min, then add any remaining marinade. Keep stirring until the marinade becomes thick and everything is hot. Serve sprinkled with coriander, and with rice and greens, if you like.

I agree with the last reviewer - quick cook is key so use rump or better, just not worse (although it doesn't need to be the freshest piece of meat). I cooked each batch of beef for 30 - 60 seconds since it goes back in at the end. Made sure everything was ready prepared before starting to cook too. I put cooked noodles in at the very end and it was YUMMY!! Will definitely be a regular in this house.

I love this recipe - it's so easy and so tasty. I serve with my home-made egg fried rice. I find the trick with this recipe is to make sure all the fat is trimmed from the beef and not overcook the beef - sear very lightly and only stir in when just about to serve. If you keep your pan really hot and stir fry properly, nothing should burn and it should only take a matter of minutes to cook the entire thing.

Forgot to say that I replaced the sugar and chilli sauce with 1 1/2 tablespoons of sweet chilli sauce and the results were good.

Not dairy free?? Why is this in the dairy free secton when it contains beef!

beef isn't dairy?? cow produce like milk and butter is dairy but beef itself is protein not dairy?

i found that frying the beef in batches meant that the marinade/sauce left in the pot started to burn, perhap an error on my part but on the whole quite disappointed with this receipe.

Excellent ! Used canned pineapple and skipped the rice wine vinegar and it was LOVELY.

Lovely - next time I would add more ginger, slightly less pineapple (which I would cut into slightly smaller pieces).

Not made this yet but hope to because it looks great. Questions - does it matter if you use red or white rice wine vinegar? Do you mean sweet chilli sauce?

Very easy, but really tasty. I didn't have chilli sauce so I added a chopped chilli instead, and I also added some french beans. I shall definitely make this again!

this recipe sounds nice but are the amount of calories listed just for the beef and pineapple part of the stir fry or does it include the rice and additional veggies? because if it does include the rice and veg it is very healthy
