Beef and Edamame Stir-Fry

In this quick recipe, sirloin steak is stir-fried with a homemade sauce and fresh vegetables.

Served over wholegrain freekeh, it is a healthy alternative to the traditional beef stir-fry.




Recipe Ingredients:

8 oz (225 g) uncooked freekeh
1 tbsp light olive oil
450 g beef sirloin steak, cut into strips
8 oz (225 g) carrots, shredded
8 oz (225 g) frozen shelled edamame
6 fl oz (175 ml) low-sodium soy sauce
2 fl oz (60 ml) beef stock
2 fl oz (60 ml) rice vinegar
1/2 tbsp cornflour, mixed with a little warm water
1 tsp freshly grated root ginger
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 handful chopped spring onions, to garnish

Recipe Methods:

1  Place the freekeh and 750 ml (1 1/4 pints) of water in a large, lidded saucepan over a medium heat. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook for 20-25 minutes, until almost all the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat, drain any excess water, and set aside.
2  Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large, lidded frying pan over a medium heat. Add the beef and cook for about 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add the carrots and edamame to the pan, cover, and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3  Place the soy sauce, beef stock, rice vinegar, cornflour, ginger and pepper in a bowl. Whisk until well combined. Pour the liquid mixture into the pan. Then add the beef, stir well to combine and bring to the boil. Cook, stirring frequently, for a further 10-12 minutes, or until the sauce thickens slightly. Remove from the heat. Divide the freekeh between four serving bowls and top with the stir-fry. Serve hot, garnished with spring onions.
