Sesame Beef with Spinach
I can’t remember what inspired me to make a sesame focused stir fry recently, but I’m so glad I did. There’s something about the subtle toastiness of sesame oil that works so well with beef. I’ve kept it simple here with just two sources of sesame flavour but you could easily up the ante… See the ‘triple sesame’ idea below.
Enough for 2:
450g (1lb) ground beef
2-6 small red chilli
4 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 bag baby spinach
3 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1. Heat a wok or large frying pan on a very high heat.
2. Add a little oil and then the beef and chilli. Cook, stirring frequently until the beef is well browned.
3. Add oyster sauce and spinach and cook for another minute or until the spinach is just starting to wilt.
4. Remove from the heat. Taste season and serve with sesame seeds and oil scattered and drizzled over.
vegan / vegetarian – replace beef with cooked lentils. And use a vegetarian ‘oyster’ sauce. They do exist.
triple sesame – serve with a drizzle of tahini.
tiny person friendly – serve the chopped chilli at the table for everyone to add their own. For more family-friendly ideas see my other blog, theyellowbench.com
sesame-free – skip the oil and seeds and serve the beef with a generous handful of fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves.
no sesame oil or seeds? – You could just use one or the other or serve with a drizzle of tahini instead.
different veg – you can add pretty much any stir fry veg such as carrots, zucchini, snow peas, asparagus, broccolini, broccoli.
different meat – lamb is great or use any ground (minced) meat or poultry. If you’re not a fan of minced (ground) meat, use tender meat cut into slices for stir frying.
