Butcher’s tip for cooking beef strips

When cooking beef strips cook the first side until the first sign of moisture appears on the uncooked side, then turn and cook the other side to complete the cooking. This way the beef strips will brown well, and the meat will be tender.

Butcher’s tips for the right cut

Buy stir-fry beef strips or use these beef cuts to make your own – beef fillet, rib eye/scotch fillet, sirloin, rump, round and blade.

Thinly slice the beef across the diagonal to use.
