Corned Beef Stir-Fry

A great twist on classic stir-fry using corned beef!

Ingredients

Beef stir-fry sauce:

1
cup beef stock
2
tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2
tablespoons sugar
2
teaspoons soy sauce
2
teaspoons chili garlic sauce
1
teaspoon cornstarch

Stir Fry:

1
pound corned beef, cubed
2
tablespoons neutral oil (like canola)
2
(12 oz) packages frozen vegetables (stir-fry variety or your favorite)
Rice, for serving
Fresh cilantro, garnish
Chili garlic sauce, garnish

Directions

  • 1 For sauce, whisk together beef stock, rice wine vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, chili garlic sauce and cornstarch. Set aside.
  • 2 Cut corned beef into 1/4-inch cubes. In a large skillet or wok, add a drizzle of oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add corned beef and cook until crispy on the edges, 4-5 minutes.
  • 3 Meanwhile, cook according to package directions. Since veggies will cook more in the stir-fry, use the lowest guideline for microwaving time. If the package has a sauce included, rinse the sauce off in a colander after cooking.
  • 4 Toss thawed veggies into the skillet or wok with the corn beef and toss to combine. Cook until heated through.
  • 5 Pour stir-fry sauce in and let reduce for 2-3 minutes.
  • 6 Serve stir-fry immediately over rice with fresh cilantro and extra chili garlic sauce.

Step By Step  

Stir fry that rings Irish. Gotta try it!

As prepared by Macheesmo,

Stir fry is typically Asian, but this version has fave St. Patrick's Day flavors.

There’s nothing that signifies St. Patrick’s Day more to me than a big corned beef. I highly encourage you to make your own, but you can also buy a really good one these days.

One problem: You will almost certainly have a lot of leftovers and probably get sick of eating it as-is.

Stir-fry to the rescue!

Corned beef is really flavorful, so you don’t need a lot of other stuff to make a great stir-fry out of it. Some veggies and a simple sauce will get the job done.

 

Corned Beef Stir Fry

Cube your corned beef into 1/4-inch cubes. If you are getting your corned beef from a deli, you can ask them to slice it for you in 1/4-inch slices which makes it easy.

The key to a successful stir-fry is having everything ready. For the veggies, I just used a few bags of Green Giant™ Steamers. You can use any kind really, but they do have a stir-fry variety.

If you use one with a sauce included (I used garden veggie), then rinse off the sauce that comes with the veggies because it’ll be too much mixed with the stir-fry sauce.

Speaking of sauce, you need it! This is a really basic one with a beef stock base plus some classic stir-fry flavors.

 

Corned Beef Stir Fry

When you’re ready to cook, heat your skillet or wok over medium-high heat and add a drizzle of oil. Cook the beef until it’s browned on the edges and getting crispy, maybe 3-4 minutes.

Then toss in the thawed veggies. When you steam the veggies in the microwave, use the lower range for cooking time since they will keep cooking in the stir-fry.

Then add in the sauce and let it thicken for 2-3 minutes.
