  1. Marinate the beef: Put the beef in a medium non-metallic bowl and cover with the vinegar, soy and Worcestershire sauce. Leave to marinate for 20 minutes, or if you have the time, overnight.

  2. Stir fry: Heat a small dry wok until it’s very hot. Tip in the beef, marinade and spring onions, stir fry for 2 minutes. Add the roasted peppers, then stir fry for a further 2 minutes. Divide the stir fry between shallow bowls and serve with some boiled rice.

Yummy! I enjoyed this a lot. I made it with some zucchini fried in olive oil with salt, pepper and garlic powder. At first I thought I'd like it better with a thicker sauce but it's actually really good on its own. I served it with pre-soaked brown rice.

Cooked this tonight. Used thin sliced filet of beef. Added thin sliced carrot, broccoli, bok choy, chestnut mushrooms and a quatre tea spoon of red chilli, Didn't use roasted antipasto veg. Big hit with all the family, been asked to make it again tomorrow night with chicken. If you like a lot more sauce perhaps double up on the liquids.

Cooked this a few times now as it's a quick, easy mid week dinner. Added some crushed garlic and ginger to get some extra taste and left to marinate for hours rather than minutes, which worked well. Also used fresh peppers as a substitute to antipasto peppers.

Not nice at all, won't make it again-far too salty and not great taste overall.

What a dull, boring stir-fry. Easy to do, but extremely dull and flavorless.

Really wasn't keen in this recipe. A very English tasting stir fry.

Great basis for a very quick meal and even kids enjoyed. Used low salt soy and fresh peppers as well as rump steak which is still tender if cooked fast.

Sorry to go against the consensus opinion, but this was hugely disappointing. As some others did, I added a chopped chilli pepper (that improved it) and served it with a sprinkling of cashew nuts, but none of the family liked the main stir-fry. The beef strips (bought as pre-prepared strips from Tescos) was tough, and felt like they needed another 20 - 30 minutes' cooking. OK, that wasn't the fault of the recipe, but the sauce was rather tasteless, rather too salty, and with balsamic vinegar it almost tasted sour. I made a double-batch to have again later in the week but it's all gone in the bin...and that never happens, no matter how disappointing a meal is.

Really easy and really nice. We have this for dinner most weeks because it is so easy to do!
