Descriptions

This easy beef and green bean stir-fry is packed with flavour and is a great option when you are craving something simple but delicious. This recipe is also a great option when you need something healthier to serve your family and still want something tasty and satisfying.

Directions

Step 1
  • Mix the barbecue sauce, sweetener, and soy sauce in your small bowl. Set aside.
Step 2

In your large skillet over high heat, heat the olive oil. Add the ground beef and sauté until it is cooked through and barely pink, about 5 minutes. Drain any extra grease if necessary

Step 3
Boil water in a medium pot. Add the green beans. Stir for 2 minutes then remove and place in a strainer.
Step 4
Add the green beans and mix well. Pour the sauce into your skillet, mix well, and cook until the mixture is heated through. Cook for 3-5 min. Don’t overcook. You want the green beans not to lose their colour.
Step 5
Season with salt plus black pepper to taste and serve.

Note's

This beef/green stir fry recipe is one of those meals that can be prepared within half an hour or less.

This dish will be ready before you know it and everyone will for sure love it.

 

Tips

  • I rarely have fresh green beans in the fridge so I always opt for frozen ones. Fresh green beans are also perfect for this recipe.
  • For my keto family, omit the barbecue sauce. The taste will not be the same but will still taste great. You can add half a cup of cream cheese and 1/4 cup of heavy cream to meet your fat intake. You can also serve it with sauteed cauliflower rice if you wish.
  • This dish goes well on its own or you can serve it with a side of boiled/steamed rice.
  • This dish can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days. It also freezes well so it’s a great option for meal prep. 
  • I have used ground turkey for this dish and it came out perfect. If that’s all you have in the freezer, don’t stress, that’ll do!
