Quick Garlic Beef & Green Bean Stir-fry Recipe: This Sweet Garlicky Beef Stir-fry Recipe Cooks in 6 Minutes

Tender beef and crisp green beans are cooked in a sweet, garlicky sauce – all in about 6 minutes! Serve this easy beef stir-fry recipe over rice. 

Cuisine: Asian
Prep Time: 15 minutes to marinate 
Cook Time: 6 minutes
Total Time: 21 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1 sirloin steak (10 to 12 ounces), sliced thin (it's easier to slice if it's partially frozen)
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, ends trimmed
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 1 onion, sliced thin
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine the marinade ingredients in a bowl. Add the sliced beef and let it sit for about 15 minutes.
  2. Heat about 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the beef (save the marinade) and cook, stirring, about 2 minutes or until browned. Remove to a plate.
  3. Add the green beans, red pepper and onion. Cook, stirring, about 3 minutes.
  4. Stir the cornstarch into the marinade. Put the beef back into the skillet, then pour in the marinade. Cook about 1 minute. Serve over rice.
