Honey Garlic Beef

A Few Words…

It’s nice to mix things up a bit and try new cuts of meat. I bought several packages of cubed steak and  made Mongolian Beef a few weeks ago – so delish!

Rummaging through my freezer I found a few more packages and tried a new recipe that was easy, one pot and very tasty!

Definitely going to be making this again – it got a thumbs up and there were no leftovers!

Serves 3-4


  • 1 pound top sirloin steak, cut into bite sized cubes (not too small!)
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbs. vegetable or canola oil
  • 3 tbs. low sodium tamari
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 fresh garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbs. honey
  • 1 tbs. sesame oil, plain or toasted
  • 1 tbs. rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tbs. cornstarch
  • Optional garnishes: sliced green shallots and sesame seeds

Season the cubed beef with the paprika, salt and pepper and set aside. You can prepare this earlier and leave in the fridge until ready to cook!

Add the tamari, water, minced garlic, honey, sesame oil, rice vinegar and cornstarch in a small mixing bowl and whisk until combined and smooth.

Heat the oil in a wok pan or a large skillet on medium/medium high heat, add the seasoned beef and cook for 3-4 minutes, until browned and cooked through.

Stir the sauce and then pour into the pan and mix with the browned beef cubes. Lower the heat and stir until the sauce thickens and let simmer for a few minutes.

Sprinkle with sliced green shallots and sesame seeds and serve over rice or noodles.
